This bug may concern other environments.
Some OTF font names are not exported to PDF, but when the same font is converted into a TTF format, the name is correctly exported.
This bug is detected, for example, with Adobe fonts “Source Code Pro”, a.s.o.
This problem does not occur systematically with all other document production software, so it seems to be actually LO-related.
After reporting it to Adobe font designers, it seems that LO PDF module uses Mac specific name table entries in OTF file that are no more standard and that even MacOS no more uses.
And most modern font files no more include this entries.
LO should be able to use the Standard OTF/TTF format in order to export to PDF correctly.
You cannot confirm / set New yourself. You can and should search for similar bugs and put them in See Also.
Do you know some OTF font that is freely available and exhibits this behaviour?
As said in my first message, I detected this behaviour with "Source Code Pro" fonts, for example, that are freely available at <https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro> and also through <https://fonts.google.com/>
Ok, sorry, I forgot. I reproduce, opening the PDF with a text editor I see stuff like
Arch Linux 64-bit
Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+ / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: a58b9010b38ca43d4b3a2b30fcd6bec28db1b344

The typeface "Minion 3" is embedded as "DummyName" in a PDF produced by LibreOffice.
I have attached a PDF file produced by Writer. The typeface Minion 3 is embedded as "DummyName" in the file, but not other fonts such as Minion Pro, Helvetica Neue, or Neue Haas Unica. This is consistent with https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro/issues/252
Similar to bug 151039, we are trying to access font names from “CFF” table, but these fonts lack such names (they are available from the “name” table).
Khaled Hosny committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
vcl: tdf#138325 pass PostScript name down to CreateCFFfontSubset()
It will be available in 7.5.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Tested with the new daily build.
It is OK now.
Thank you for the correction.
