Database file to demonstrate scrollable memo field problem
When a form showing a scrollable memo field containing more lines than the field can display is exported as a PDF file without "Create PDF form" checked, the field on the resultant PDF file shows a field containing the lines that were visible in the field on the database form, but may also show the hidden lines below the field. Whether or not the hidden lines are shown appears to depend on how many characters the memo field contains.
To demonstrate :-
1. Open the attached "Test6 - Memo.odb" database file.
2. Open form "Form1" - this will display a form containing three fields of type memo each containing 10 lines, of which the first 7 lines are visible, with a scrollbar allowing the remaining 3 lines to be viewed, but containing different numbers of characters.
3. From the menu bar, select "File", then "Export as PDF..."
4. On the right hand side of the resultant "PDF Options" panel, check only "View PDF after export", then select "Export"
5. Save the resultant PDF file to a convenient place - it will then be automatically displayed.
6. Observe that, below two of the three fields on the PDF file, the lines that were hidden on the original form are shown. It may be relevant that the correct field originally contained more characters than the two incorrect fields.

This seems to me different from what you describe. Which Windows OS are you using?
Can you provide a screenshot to see the diferences?

Screenshot of export to PDF of memo without "Create PDF form"
I have attached a JPG file combining a screenshot of the original form as I was exporting it to PDF with "Create PDF form" NOT checked, and a screenshot of the resultant PDF file.
This clearly shows the symptoms I described.
Operating system Windows 10 (64-bit) version 1803 (OS Build 17134.165).

Screenshot of export to PDF of memo with "Create PDF form"
I have attached a JPG file combining a screenshot of the original form as I was exporting it to PDF with "Create PDF form" checked, and a screenshot of the resultant PDF file.
This does not show the symptoms described in the original bug report but is similar to the screenshot in Attachment 143551 [details] submitted by Jacques Guilleron. It is interesting in that it only shows 5 lines whereas Jacques's screenshot shows almost 7 lines.
Changing status back yo UNCONFIRMED
I suspect that it may be relevant that my screen resolution is 1440 x 900.

Dear Alan Wheeler,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
