The via PDF export generated files are damaged. The are looking totally different in different viewers. German umlauts are lost in AdobeReader and GhostView, the fonts are mostly not the right ones.
I did nothing els as usually:
1. open a file
2. export as pdf
View with FoxitReader, AdobeReader and GhostView - each gives another result.

It could be possible that the fonts you’re using don’t have the “Embeddable” permission. https://www.microsoft.com/typography/web/embedding/weft/weft14.htm
Does the problem happen with other fonts?
It could be possible, indeed. With other fonts I get an expected result.
The only thing is, that LO 4.2.6 doesn't make these problems, LO 4.3.X does. And I tested on WinXP and Win7. It must be a problem while exporting to PDF.
And I can't use other fonts because of company corporate design instructions.
BTW the tool of Microsoft doesn't seem to work with Windows 7.
I attached two picture
LO 4.2.6 can export right
LO 4.3.x can not export right

OK I tried LO 18.104.22.168 and so annoying but this bug still is present. That's so sad - the same behaviour as 4.3.x.
What can I do to push this to the developers attention?
My further search for a reason of this behaviour led me to check the font files, which were installed on my system. So I found, that I had installed several font files with different file names, but in fact some of them were identically fonts. I deleted the more or less "duplicates" and now I do have no more trouble with the PDF-Export.
I'm hoping that helps!
Thank you for your feedback! Do you agree in closing this report with the “WORKSFORME” status or shall we consider this an enhancement request for duplicate-font handling from now on?
If one know about this behaviour, then it's easy to prevent LO form doing damaged PDF files. I'm not really familiar with closing bug requests. I would appreciate, if you decide how to proceed further. Each decision you make is better, then I could do.
On a second thought, let’s close this report to avoid clutter. We’ll handle the enhancement I mentioned in a separate bug report, as it will need further discussion.
Thanks again, Ingo!
