I’ve just saw this in the 4.1 release notes wiki page: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/9/92/Embed_font.png
This is a huge waste of space and unnecessary UI and code complexity added to the “Properties” dialog. There’s absolutely no need to add a new .ui file to create a new tab page that will just have one tiny check box in it, that’s very silly.
That check box, “Embed fonts in the document”, could have been placed in the “General” tab instead.
The checkbox could probably go to the General tab.
@Milan: Yeah, that’s what I said :-)
I think the checkbox could have a child checkbox for subsetting the font. If this clutters the General tab, maybe the Security and Fonts tabs could be merged.

Okular with font property
Okular has property dialog with font tab. They have used it to show embedded fonts.
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise
In the meantime, I have added a heading label to this checkbox, so that the tabpage doesn’t look confusingly empty anymore. Also, this (and other dialogs) are being improved in many ways, so this bug report has become obsolete. Resolving INVALID as we don’t have the OBSOLETE status. ;-)
I think adding the list of fonts Manik suggested would be nice, but that requires another bug report.
