Hi :)
Did work for me on Win Xp Sp3, LO 3.5.4

Not working on Ubuntu 12.04, LO 3.5.4 = asks for Utf encoding and defaults
to 8 and guesses at font = Times New Roman.
Regards from
Tom :)

Running 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04, I downloaded the file to my Downloads folder.
Double-clicking the file opens it there in the Ubuntu default pdf-reader,
but a right-click provides me with the option to open the file, in addition
to in the pdf reader, in LibreOffice Draw or in Gimp. Works like a charm in

in gibberish

I did exactly what it says - ie downloaded it, then ran LO and did File
Open and selected the downloaded file. It opened in Draw and was all there
and legible. LO 3.6.1 on Win7

I downloaded the hybrid pdf from here http://blog.****07/17/libreoffice-**infographics/<>and
tried to open in LO as it said at the bottom of the page. All I get is
a load of gibberish.
The hybrid pdf opens OK in a PDF reader....
