|0009806||Scribus||Typography||public||2011-03-07 13:45||2016-03-08 05:56|
|Platform||x86||OS||Windows 7||OS Version||Home/Ultimate|
|Product Version||1.4 milestone|
|Summary||0009806: Chosen font is not used for text fields (cannot enter text in those fields on exported PDF)|
|Description||I have a problem that seems to present itself on a clean installation of Scribus 1.4.0 running on Windows 7.|
When I create a text field box, and then export that form to a PDF (ensuring to embed all fonts) my text boxes simply "don't work" on the form. That is, I cannot enter text in them.
If I right-click the text box and "Edit Text", the chosen font is always some obscure font that happens to be at the very top of the list alphabetically. If I click the drop down and try to use Arial Regular (which is the font I have chosen to use as a default) - it's not on the list. It IS on the list for a Text Frame, but not a Text Field.
|Steps To Reproduce||Happens every time for me when running a clean install on a Windows 7 workstation. Have not tried it on other Windows OS's.|
|Additional Information||The only work-around that I have found for this issue is to remove all but one non-offending font (Verdana) from the list of allowed fonts in preferences.|
