would you please upload a test file as well?
did the formula corruption happen only after PDF export?
what if you save as .odt (step 5) and then export to .pdf (step 4) ?

Please see the attached content. BTW this only happens with my old .odt files.

May be this is because some of my files are initially created as .rtf in Windows Wordpad and then open and saved in LibreWriter as .odt

I can't access the image linked to in comment 0.

If this issue still occurs in 4.3 or later, please attach a screenshot of the issue you are seeing directly to this bug.

It would also be useful to know the precise formula text used in the reproduction steps (step 2) and how exactly it is updated (step 3)
