Description tamius.han 2019-02-07 19:20:24 UTC
When exporting to PDF, certain special characters (žščć) do not appear in exported PDF.

Said characters are definitely supported by the font, though, as Writer (and every other program for that matter) renders them without a problem. They only go missing when exporting to PDF.
