Problem with Czech accents in editable parts of the forms created in any version 4.x libre office writer and subsequently exported to pdf fillable forms (especially a problem with the hooks of characters ě,ř, ú, ů) where the place of these characters appear in the fillable fields blanks. Everything is viewed and saved in Adobe Reader 11 CZ. Noneditable parts of forms work correctly. I think, that the problem is most likely in the export to PDF fonts.
please upload test files and screenshots and define exactly the LibO version you are using.
I set status to NEEDINFO waiting for feedback.
revert it to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested infos.

I confirm that this bug is still present in the Libre Office 220.127.116.11 (x64). Czech accents, especially letters "ř" "č" and "ů" are missing after saving the filled file.
To fillable pdf exported odt document also does not mantain correct format of text pre-filled into fillable cells (text is not underlined, while it was underlined in the original odt file).
The filled form also fails to be properly exported into non-editable pdf file via pdf creator.
Exported file is empty except for this message:
OFFENDING COMMAND: eexec
location of documents:
Since the laste issue of Apacha OOo does the same, I´d say inhereted.
Bug still present in newest Libreoffice build (Build ID: 1:5.2.1~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial0). It is impossible to save letters such a ą, ę, ł, ó, ż, ź in editable fields.

Test form - source *.odg, exported *.pdf and filled form in *.pdf
I must also confirm this problem is still present in:
Build ID: 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial1
I attached test form with various fields using accented characters together with reference text so it is easy to compare the results.
Strange is that the characters in form fields are damaged by default in the PDF output but after switching the form fields on (for example in Okular) it looks correct.
I am able to fill the form in PDF-Xchange Viewer or in Acrobat Reader DC but the resulting PDF file after saving has damaged text again.
The bug is strange as for example the text in filled PDF looks ok in Okular or PDF-Xchange but damaged in Adobe Reader.
Unfortunately even PDF-Xchange does not print the PDF correctly.

missing accent bug
I also confirm this problem in Version: 18.104.22.168
Screen from Adobe Reader without focus (missing character "ě") and with focus (all is shown)
I'm not sure if this is LO bug or not or Won'tFix. It's not major that accents "NOT working", maybe minor that "don't preview correctly in some PDF readers".
I'm looking at attachment 107873 [details] and "Školení na : Řidiče".
LO-exported PDF (attached and from 6.2+) opens fine in PDF-Xchange.
Adobe Reader 11 shows "Školení na : idiče" but missing Ř is there, as shown when mouse-clicked in. Form can be edited and saved.
Old Foxit 4.3 shows "Školení na : idie" but click in shows "Řidiče" with emphasized Ř and č. Newer Foxit 5.4 immediately shows "Školení na : Řidiče" with emphasized Ř and č.
Small Sumatra PDF shows "Školení na : ?idi?e"
In Linux Mint, Xreader and Evince also previews "idie" but click in shows "Řidiče".
