Hello @ll,
while trying to reproduce bug 100318, I stumbled upon the following 
(originally reported to the German discuss list, but found a shorter 
way to reproduce it):

1. start Writer
2. enter "dt" and press <F3>
3. press <Ctrl><A> to mark the whole text
4. press on the arrow right of the font name in the toolbar Standard
5. insert the name of a font, which is not installed on your system 
(e.g. "Calligula")
5. zoom your document to 180% or the like
6. press <Alt>+<F> (or <E>, it does not matter)

On my system
OS: Debian Testing AMD64
LO: Version:
Build ID: fcbcb4963bda8633ba72bd2108ca1e802aad557d
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.5; UI Render: default; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)
(parallel installed, following the instructions from 

the menues are grey, without any text, visible hints for submenues, 
etc. ... :(

Is someone else able to confirm tthis? I cannot reproduce it with 
Debian's LO
Build-ID: 1:5.1.4~rc2-2
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Linux 4.5; UI-Render: Standard; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)
... :(

Power corrupts.  Absolute power is kind of neat.
