|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Summary||0016913: Visual bug in font selection.|
|Description||In the "text property" menu (F3), when I want to select a font the scrolling list is completely glitched with color aberrations. Abherences similar to a rendering issue, leading to almost non-legible fonts, drowned in a mixture of purple, orange, white and pixel mush.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Select a text frame, press F3 (or go by any other means to "text properties") and click on the selector in the list of fonts.|
|Additional Information||I did a reinstall of Scribus, with no positive effect.|
I checked Libre Office and other apps to see if the problem was with my machine or my font list and nothing to report.

I just saw the same behavior in selecting fonts via the “Style Manager” menu (F4).

||Weird issue... Might be a Qt bug on Manjaro as I do not observe it on Windows and on other Linux distros (tested OpenSuse Tumbleweed, Ubuntu 22.10, Linux Mint 21.1).|
||A Qt bug looks even more likely as trunk compiled with Qt 6.4.2 does not suffer of this issue on Manjaro.|
In short, I found what caused this bug (without being able to systematically reproduce it).
file/preference/user interface/main window/
In the appearance section the "appearance" field is empty by default. However, I played around with this setting to see the different themes before putting the field back to default. To test, I changed this parameter again and randomly selected another one from the list, the problem solved itself... I put it back on the empty field as the default is bug didn't come back.
I deduce that I have solved my problem, a little strange but if that's it, that's fine with me.
After your message, I decided to test a little more thing.
So I created a virtual machine with Manjaro KDE, upgraded to the same version as my physical machine. Installation of Scribus, and each addition of one of my themes and each aesthetic modification I do the following:
Opening scribus, creating a single page document, creating a text frame, F3 and changing the font.
I tested after the fresh install of the OS
I tested after installing the sweet-mars global theme
I tested after installing the sweet-mars-xfce gtk theme
I tested after installing the sweet-mars-transparent-toolbar theme
And I couldn't reproduce my visual bug.
BUT, one thing struck me, although I have exactly the same theme in my VM and on a PC the icons to close / minimize / restore the current project are not identical. And so I modified Scribus' internal theme settings, as explained in the summary above.
