File that demonstrates the effect when exported as PDF

Problem description: 
In an exported PDF the description of an embedded OLE object is missing. Imported graphics as JPG or PNG view this description, also known as alternative text, are viewing this description. But using an OLE object created e.g. with Draw don't view their description. See attached file for an example.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new document
2. Insert new Object, OLE Object, choose e.g. Libre Draw
3. Draw an image
4. Close Draw
5. Right mouse click on new image, choose "Description" in context menu
6. Write some description into text field
7. Export document as PDF
8. Open exported PDF with Acrobat reader
9. Focus image with mouse pointer

Current behavior:
Description of image is not viewed in exported PDF.


Expected behavior:
Description of image should be viewed as hover text when mouse pointer on it.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)
   https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
 
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)


If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
