Opened PDF in Draw (vr 220.127.116.11) the magazine title was rendered as 34567. Should have been The WATCHTOWER with ANNOUNCING JEHOVAH'S KINDOM below.
Also happened in 4.2 don't remember the rest of the version number.
Here is snapshot of PDF in Draw>>http://imgur.com/lh2BVpY
Please, attach the pdf to this bug report.
Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided the requested informations.
Best regards. JBF
I keep getting the following error when I try to upload the PDF file.
It is a good file as my pdf viewer opens it without a problem.
The content type PDF is invalid. Valid types must be of the form foo/bar where foo is one of application, audio, image, message, model, multipart, text, video and bar must not contain any special characters (such as "=", "?", ...).
I changed the status to unconfirmed so you would know that I tried.
Change it back to need info when you've read this and hopefully you can tell me what's wrong.
When I posted this bug I uploaded the same pdf with no errors but for some reason the pdf did not make it.

Magazine front page PDF
The attachment is a PDF file. I only selected it as plain text as that was the only way I could attach it. The Add an attachment page would not accept it as a PDF.
Thanks for providing the cut-down example. Confirmed under GNU/Linux using v18.104.22.168 Build ID: 08ebe52789a201dd7d38ef653ef7a48925e7f9f7. Related forum thread:
Status set to NEW. Severity set to enhancement (as this functionality has likely never existed). The request is to include something like the PDF Viewer (pdf.js) plug-in used in Firefox to allow use of embedded font subsets for accurate rendering:
Reproducible on 22.214.171.124, Win7 x64. Will render just fine on Foxit Reader but misses stuff on LO. Looks the same as the screenshot in comment 1.
The problem still exist in LO 5.2.7 GNU/Linux amd4.
*** Bug 115390 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
in Version 6.3.2, text still overflows boundaries in Libreoffice Draw after the pdf file opened.
in pdf reader (adobe reader), the pdf is displayed as normal with embedded fonts.
fixing this would be a big improvement to libreoffice draw as well as a fix to enable a very common/basic/fundamental use case.
thanks to software engineers for diligent work
Besides using the embedded font (which obviously would be the best option), maybe it might also be an idea to implement a similar functionality like Inkscape does? If you import a PDF into Inkscape you can choose if it should be imported using Inksacpe itself (which also replaces fonts as LO Draw does) or if you want to open it using Poppler. The latter only allows you to modify the text as shapes but not as text, but does not change any fonts or layouts. Since Inkscape only works with single-page documents, a similar dual-import PDF function in LO Draw would also be pretty useful.
Still happening in 126.96.36.199. I have this problem at least once at week. Is there a way I can help with this?
The bug remains in v188.8.131.52.
Because the font changes when opening the pdf in LibreOffice Draw the layout becomes incorrect as text boxes changes size when the font is incorrect, which results in incorrect text overlapping. Very annoying!
This issue still exists in 184.108.40.206 - Ubuntu 20.04
Example file used: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf
When imported, the formatting is destroyed. I believe this is due to missing the embedded fonts. This also isn't some fancy document, just a government form.
While I understand why this was labeled enhancement due to a feature that never existed, it sure feels like a bug, and of course would be great to get this functionality, especially since it looks like it has been a request for 6 years.
Note, if I'm able to, I would like to update the ticket to Draw instead of "filters and storage"? If I'm wrong in doing so, please feel free to change it back.
