I have just tried this in OOo 1.9m51, on W2K, and couldn't replicate it. What was the font in question? Maybe there's a rights issue with that font that prevents it being embedded into the PDF? At any rate, it might help if you are able to supply some more details, such as the platform you're running OOo on.

I can reproduce this issue on OOo 1.1.3 on Windows 2000. The issue is *not* there PDF-ing using Ghostscript, however. Tahoma is mentioned now and then as a problem font (search this forum for Tahoma), but you are the first mentioning this issue with PDF export.

It does not seem to have been filed as an issue to the developpers, so I did

http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=34122

To work around this Issue, I suggest you to use the Ghostscript way instead (this approach yields the highest quality PDFs anyway). The open source PDFCreator provides a very easy way to install a printer driver that will create PDF's instead of print to paper. The more techie users can hunt for Redmon, Ghostscript and the Adobe Distiller driver and do the installation in a manual way.

I would support the suggestion to go the Ghostscript route. I actually use the free version of the extendedPDF macro from [urljdisoftware.co.uk[/url], which now has a Windows installer. It certainly gives more options to PDF generation.

As an aside, I just tried italicising 64 pages off Tahoma font text, then publishing to PDF, just using OOo's built-in capacity. It worked fine, in my OOo 1.9m51. Perhaps the bug has gone from later versions of OOo?
