2. Enable the checkbox "create PDF form" in the PDF export options 
3. try to export the Writer file

Actual Results:
No PDF file with form fields occurs. Just a standard File

No reproduction with:

CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18362; UI render: default; VCL: win;

Works as expected - after exporting to PDF, the editable fields are present in PDF file.

I believe this is a duplicate of bug 127493
Could you please try again with LibreOffice 6.4 ?

I am using libre office still from the arch linux repository. So i think i will wait until libre office 6.4 became "still".
