Description Wyatt Berka 2010-12-07 03:42:37 UTC
Since LibO 3.3 RC1, when I export a document using the Gentium font to a PDF, text in the Gentium font is simply missing when viewed in my PDF viewer. When I replaced Gentium with some random font, the text was visible. I reinstalled LibO 3.3 Beta3, and the text in the Gentium font is again visible in my PDF viewer. The PDF viewer I use is SumatraPDF. A friend viewed the same PDF in Adobe Reader, and experienced no issues. I later verified this in Adobe Reader.

Hm, there were a few fixes around pdf export between beta3 and RC1, most notably commits 1524ed903c0a8aa3ab57c7c20d53ad5654258850 and cc6ad25bf82098db768fdbddaa90422039045745

Wyatt, could you maybe attach a simple document that exhibits this behaviour for you?

Example of the issue as requested.

Here's an example of the missing Gentium font (outlined in red) when viewed in my PDF viewer. I also noticed that this happens even when the font is not installed.

it would have been great if you had attached a sample .odt and a sample .pdf, not a screenshot

As far as I can see this appears to be fixed in approx 3.4.3

*possibly* fixed by http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/libs-gui/commit/?id=ba678b7d44fbde9e9ac1f0e01b49dc0b211530c0 which is the fix for http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=114901
