Maybe a check box/radio button on the pdf export dialog to export the document without embedding all the fonts. This will reduce the size tremendously especially when all fonts used are widely available ones.
Steps to Reproduce:
The dialog should offer a radio button/check box to turn off embedding of fonts.
The output PDF should be at least 80% smaller.
User Profile Reset: No
Explanation is not sufficient.
Please explain current situation, what is embedded, how much is it in size, is is possible to make PDF without fonts, did you search other bugs.
So far, WontFix.
It's not a bug. It's a feature request. Currently > 80% of pdf's exported are embedded fonts. If there is an option to produce pdf with only references system fonts, it'll greatly reduce the size of pdf files produced.

I can't confirm this, if setting in File => Properties => Font => Font embedding is disabled
The setting you mentioned only disables embedding in .odt files. I'm talking about exporting to pdf files.
The setting you mentioned only disables embedding in .odt files. I'm talking about exporting to pdf file. If the setting you mentioned covers pdf exporting then this should be a bug. Because you can check to see with any pdf reader that all the fonts are embedded in the exported pdf file.
embedded are only fonts used, which is minimal.
Question was, is it possible to make and have PDF without fonts.
Please look for some standard or example.

pdf file without embedded fonts
10 pages with various graphics, only 161kb
There are plenty of them around beside the attachment. In fact, it's probably the DEFAULT option for Acrobat to NOT embed the fonts used, just like the file->properties->font... option you mentioned, to conserve space, for obvious historical reasons. (Computers of yesteryear did not have nearly as much memory/storage as their modern counterparts)

copy/paste text only into odt and then export to pdf
I've copy/pasted text only from the original into LO writer and then export to pdf. You can see it's way bigger than the original even without all the graphics.

I would like to have this option, too. Embedded fonts can make up a significant portion of the file size of a PDF document. Moreover, fonts are embedded even if they belong to the PDF standard fonts like Helvetica or Times New Roman.
The font embedding option from the document properties dialogue is not honoured for PDF export.
