    I am currently using fedora core 1, I am not sitting in front of it at the
    moment but I am 90% certain it is abiword version 2.0.1 -upgrade is on my
    todo list but I also noticed the font issue below under 2.0.2 on redhat 9.

    I have over a 100 abiword documents (mostly poetry actually....) created
    with different versions of abiword. At different times different fonts
    have been available to abiword, either becuase of different versions of
    the OS (red hat) or different versions of abiword. Any-way when I open
    some documents they display using a font which I can't select from the
    dropdown font list; so for example a document I was looking at last night
    had some text in times new roman (it looked like times new roman and if I
    put the cursor on the text abiword reported that it was times new roman)
    but if I selected some other text and tried to make it times new roman as
    well, times new roman was not a font offered in the font list. Which is
    frustrating since abiword obviously found the font somewhere in order to
    display it in the first place.

    I am not sure if this is an abiword problem or fedora problem but I will
    mention it any-way- abiword on fedora core 1 dies horribly if you try to
    copy text to the clipboard. Not nice! I will upgrade to 2.0.2 and see if
    it still happens...

    Abiword rocks BTW.
