Maybe this is a duplicate of bug 89246.

The document has Arial font specified. LO has a replacement list to substitute Arial with Liberation Sans (always set). On screen it looks ok, and also when printing the Umlauts are printed. The fonts are installed on the system.

The exported PDF document opened by PDF-Xchange Viewer does not show the Umlauts although they are in the PDF file (Search finds them). Strange: Microsoft Edge displays the Umlauts in the PDF correctly.

This problem does not appear if the font substitution is disabled in LO.

An attachment contains the files to reproduce the problem.

It may be a bug in PDF-Xchange Viewer.

It is ok when displaying it with browsers (MS Edge, Firefox) and PDF-Xchange Editor.
