Is there a list of all the fonts which come with OpenOffice / LibreOffice ?

Partly answering my own question:

LibreOffice comes with these fonts, as posted here:

enter image description here

And here are some of the fonts that come with OpenOffice, accroding to Wikipedia:

OpenOffice includes OpenSymbol, DejaVu,the Liberation fonts (from 2.4 to 3.3) and the Gentium fonts (since 3.2). Versions prior to 2.3 included the Bitstream Vera fonts. After 3.4 the GPL-licensed Liberation fonts were removed and replaced by the Apache-licensed ChromeOS fonts Arimo (sans serif), Tinos (serif) and Cousine (monospace). OpenOffice will also use the default fonts of the running operating system.

  • OK, +1. I am surprised they would risk breaking exportability to Office with that many fonts. – Austin T French Jun 25 '13 at 14:38

Fonts are inherited by from the OS, not the application. If you want to know what fonts you will have in any product, open your fonts folder.

Programs adding fonts is not common, especially for something where the file needs to be shared and still look good.

Photoshop is a good exception, but OpenOffice plays it safe:

How can I add fonts to OpenOffice?

OpenOffice.org uses the fonts that are installed in your system. Add new fonts using the Font management tools for your Operating System (for example in Microsoft Windows, you add new fonts via Control Panel

Fonts). You may need to restart OpenOffice.org (including the Quickstarter), to see the new fonts in the Font Name list box.

And, LibreOffice also seems to play by the rules:

The set of fonts is not property of the office suite, but only the configuration of your operating system. Install the necessary fonts in the system and they will be available in office applications.

    A program can install fonts to the system during its installation though, and OpenOffice/LibreOffice may do so. – afrazier Jun 25 '13 at 2:05
  • @afrazier I added some information for you, it really plays to best practices when you want people to adopt your product. – Austin T French Jun 25 '13 at 2:09

    @AthomSfere - I think the OP wanted to know the list of LO "bundled fonts", some are mentioned here. – don_crissti Jun 25 '13 at 9:45

    @AthomSfere: Thanks to your link, and contrary to what you have wrote, LibreOffice does add new fonts. Please see my own answer. – Bohoo Jun 25 '13 at 13:27
