I've found that using the Graphite fonts Libertine and Biolinum produce very attractive PDFs. However the PDFs are effectively unsearchable, as LibreOffice seems to insert spurious characters into the text.

The attached files demonstrate what I mean. The text in the ODT reads "This is the official version." while the text in the PDF reads "This his the offichial vershion."

Can anyone suggest why this is happening or what I can do about it?

Many thanks,

Since attached files do not get saved with this email list, I tried using your email's text to see what happens.

I tried both Linux Libertine and Linux Biolinum [14 point] on my 3.5.7 version for Ubuntu 64-bit. I cannot replicate the issue with "added" characters.

Could you tell up which OS and version you are using, plus the "exact" name of the font[s] shown up in the font windows of LO.

please try some other PDF generation methods. For Windows, us the doPDF printer-driver-line software, or CUPS-PDF for Linux. See if those type of "Print" to PDF file packages give you the same issues. If they do, then is it not the "export-to-pdf" part of LO, but some other rendering issues.

Also, see if your media printed version [i.e. print on paper] give the same extra characters.
