Summary0004663: Two different fonts with the same name should appear as two fonts in the font list
DescriptionI have two "Garamond" font sets installed here, one older PS version from Adobe and a newer version from StarOffice 7 (TrueType) with more glyphs. Both fonts are listed in the font selections as one PS font with lots of different font faces (the respective faces have different names in the type 1 and ttf versions). IMHO this shouldn't be possible, since the change from the ttf version to type 1 could mean that single glyphs don't exist in the doc. Besides, some printers here still insist on PS fonts in print files. Inadvertently choosing the ttf version could cause some trouble.
Perhaps the fonts can be sorted by manufacturer or, in case they exist in two formats with no manufacturer information, be displayed as "xyz (PS)", "xyz (TTF)"

KWord knows the difference, so maybe it's worth looking at their code to see how to do it.
