When I tried to open a doc file using openoffice in windows and centos, the same got displayed differently, as attached.


Does anyone know what the issue is related to and a fix for this ?

You've got different fonts: look at the "g"! Faced with a font that's not available, the CentOS version has done the best it can, but the characters are a bit wider.

The reason that the font name is shown the same in both cases is that the word processor lists the font you specified; it's up to you to make sure the font is actually available for it to use.
