Description Daniel Grigoras 2018-02-27 11:17:12 UTC

I noticed that when copy-pasting from LibreOffice-generated PDFs a character corruption occurs. If I copy-paste "respective owners" from the PDF, what I actually get is "respecnve ooners".

It seems that in former version, when copy-pasting from LibreWriter-generated PDFs a character corruption or replacement occurred, in that “ti” was always replaced with “n”. In version, “ti” becomes “t”. Also “ing” becomes “nn” if you copy such words as living, walking, talking.

I confirm this on

Also, I find that, if changing the fonts to Arial and then re-export as pdf, the bug is gone. Thus the bug is font-specific. The current document uses Calibri font.
