That's exactly what I mean. It effectively means no searching.

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.

Were you using Graphite fonts ('Libertine G'/'Biolinum G')? Those are the ones where the problem arises. Those are also the fonts that do ligatures and other lovely typesetting things that make them look so nice, which I why I want to use them.


Seems to me that you have solved your own problem: it is the fonts. The search function can not handle the the lovely typesetting things. As you mentioned, an "i" looks like a "hi" to it. The only real solution is to not use any of the Graphite fonts in a PDF. But if you want to search the PDF, have you opened it in Draw and search for the text in it?
