Thank you for commenting on the OP's initial problem, and not a Linux
Windows word flame-war that bears no relation to the subject line,
despite some valid suggestions being valid.

Verify you have not marked in the same tab the option:
Embed OpenDocument file.

How could I check this via the GUI? I recreated the last graph and made
sure there were no 'embeds' of any kind. Could non-standard fonts i.e.
not Arial, also play a part?

Further to this, issue it would seem that only the last created graph is
being exported( but this is NOT the last selected Tab)  as when I view
the exported PDF, only a single page shows, instead of approx 12.


Hi Hylton,
sure I have not explained with the required detail.

The option is in:
Menu/File/Export as PDF/[General] - General - Embed OpenDocument file.

This option is not available on my version of LO 3.4.5 only 'Embed Standard fonts' is available, which is not selected.

If this option is enable the only chance is to export the complete

This option embed the ods document in the pdf file, and if you later
open this pdf in LibreOffice the ods document is open. IMO a very
interesting option to share a document, an accurate view plus an edit
file option.

About other non related things with your question, you are right, IMHO
people would be better answer what it is asked, and if they like to
comment about other things start their own thread.
Too much blah blah blah, with few helping answers.

Thanks for the idea, but alas the problem persists.

I have Cc'd you and include the file as an attachment, that I know will be stripped by TDF for the mailing list but you should receive it. Once you open the file in Calc, select all the tabs from July to General, Choose File: Export to PDF, Choose only selection, save the file on your system and then re open it with Adobe Acrobat to check all pages exported.

If they did what version of LO are you running?
