Rogier ,

Its not worth a issue, its user related due to serial direct formating, spaces folowd by spaces etc..When checking the underlying XML you can sea lots of unused tags and sometimes the PDF-creator is confused :-)
The solution and the probable cause...

In the end, this problem was fixable, by using 'clear direct formatting' in
the areas affected. (Could not do whole doc lest we wipe out italics and

The amazing fact was that the problem did not manifest in a PDF at the
subdocument level, it just showed up in PDF output from the masterdoc. Very
likely it was some kind of imperfection with the process of switching fonts
somewhere in mid project. Unclear if it is substantial enough to rise to
the level of a reportable issue. It probably is, but I would not know how
to duplicate it.

Rogier ,

We produce about 8000 full color magazine pages a year using OO-LO on
Windows, without any PDF anomalies

- are you using Windows ?

- what Fonts ?

you can also send some problematic pages to my personal emailadress



Back in 2002 I produced a book, going straight to print off a Open Office
PDF, and the results were thoroughly satisfactory. In fact, my book at
time was probably the first production book that was fully produced
straight from OO, skipping DTP altogether.

Today, 10 years later I'm doing a tentative layout for a book in Libre
Office, though this time without the intention of going to print from the
PDF, but I'm finding out I could not do it if I wanted to for there are
some unpredictable anomalies happening in the PDF in LIbre Office. (I have
not tried OO yet. Today I would probably use Scribus or Adobe Indesign to
prepare a proper print layout.) What is happening is that there are
completely unpredictable irregularities in the LO PDF output for which I
cannot find any evident cause.

     - There is irregular line spacing happening in the PDF output for

     reasons that are entirely unclear in the original.
     - In some cases opening smart quotes seem to display at a point size

     about 5 times the size of the text in the PDF (not in the actual
     files), which at least provides a visual clue for the irregular line

Does anyone have similar experience, and has anyone perhaps found a
workaround, or is this an "issue."
