Two problems with the current AbiWord release, when running on kernel
2.4.0-test4 on a Slackware 7.0-based system:
1. If you select a block of text and make a format change, making the
format change clears the selection. So, if you want to select a paragraph
of (for example) 12-point Courier plain, and make it Times Roman 18-point
bold italic, you have to either go through the Format Font... dialog, or:
- select the paragraph
- change the font to Times Roman
- select the paragraph again
- change the size to 18
- select the paragraph *again*
- set the Bold attribute
- select the paragraph *AGAIN*
- set the Italic attribute
This behavior is b0rken. Changing an attribute of a selection should not
clear the selection.
This is definitely a bug. Hopefully other people have ideas. Also,
consider filing a bug in bugzilla.
2. (This may have been already reported) It does not appear to be
possible to specify a font size that's not in the default font size list.
Also .... when is AbiWord going to be able to use standard X fonts and
therefore have access to all the fonts on the system, instead of being
limited to its own rather small set of mostly-rather-unattractive fonts?
