Once saved, change the extension to ZIP
Decompress the ZIP file using a standard compression tool
The Font folder is missing
edited summary notes and version field to the first release where the bug has been reported. (LO 4.2 Beta 2 / LO 4.1.4 RC 1 / LO 4.1.3)
did you experience this issue with previous releases (4.1.2 or 4.0.x)?
it is important to know if this is a regression and when it took place
Font Embedding was definitely working on 4.1.0 and 4.1.1, as I used the feature for the LibreOffice conference presentations to produce the relevant slide. I do not know if it was working on 4.1.2, as I never tried it with that version.
The first time I realized that the feature was broken I was using 4.1.3, but I did not have the time to report it immediately.
so it's a suspected regression in between of 4.1.1 and 4.1.3
a MacOS QA tester is needed to confirm and eventually bibisect this.
Confirmed on OS X 10.9 LO Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+
Build ID: 4c539fac018dfd44cd8db52161a8cb930c627da7
TinderBox: MacOSX-x86@49-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2013-12-18_01:54:50
decompressed zip does not have a font folder. Setting to NEW.
Might be worth a look if you have a spare cycle and a Mac Tor =)

I tested it with 4.1.0, 4.1.1, 4.1.2 and 4.1.3 and none of them worked, so I don't think it is a regression. It never worked on Mac.
AquaSalGraphics::GetEmbedFontData() always returns NULL, the function is not implemented.

Confirming with LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 on Mac OS X 10.11.
Opening documents with embedded fonts that have been created on other systems (Linux, Windows) works successfully: Fonts that are not installed locally will be displayed. It takes considerably longer than opening documents without embedded fonts, but it works just fine.
Confirmed on Libre Office 126.96.36.199 with MacOSX 10.10.5 Yosemite.
Is there any progress going on in this bug?
It is a very essential feature and makes the Mac OS Version kind of handicaped.
Bug, after almost 4 years, is still present with LO v188.8.131.52 [Build ID: ea7cb86e6eeb2bf3a5af73a8f7777ac570321527; CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.12.6; UI render: default; Locale: de-DE (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group].

The function has never been implemented on MacOS, so the bug is still valid.
