@Fridrich: If you already assigned yourself to this bug, I suppose you can confirm it? If so, can you please set this bug as NEW; If you still need an independent test, can you always 'ping' me again.

Marking as: 
Assigned (confirmed + assigned to someone)
Normal (can prevent high quality work or consistent quality work between products)
Low (default of medium, put as low because this feature isn't used by a lot of our users)

Hello, I checked the attached file and I see that there are some differences in position and wrapping of a text. These are principally due to the way font substitution works on Linux or Windows. The problem here is that we will never be able to achieve pixel-by-pixel fidelity of the documents. We have to rely on the underlying font engine to lay the text for us.

I am sorry, but I cannot do much with this one. That is why I close it as NOTOURBUG.
