Description Alejandro Moreno 2011-03-14 03:55:52 UTC
If you insert an object in a file and export it to pdf, the object is not
attached in pdf.

It would be a good idea that objects that are inserted in a file are added as attachments to export to pdf.

Design team: this request was self-confirmed 10 years ago and lacked a proper description. However, it seems to be about OLE objects.
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2021-01-26 13:56:58 UTC
If I add a OLE objects whether internal formats such as Chart or as file, in both cases the content is exported to PDF as seen on the document.

Test document

If you open the document on Libreoffice you can see that have an OLE object test.txt and you can open it.

If you export to pdf, in the pdf you could see an icon but you can not get test.txt attach into pdf.

You can't confirm your own bugs. Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone
else confirms it.

Cannot confirm the issue (Linux,  kf5), and ultimately it's not a question for UX.
