I wish I we know why you are having this issue on the on Win7 when I do not have this one on Ubuntu 64-bit.

When I get time, I will see what happens when I try your text on a 32-bit Vista system and a 32-bit XP/pro system, but I will have to upgrade them to instead of their older 3.5.x versions.

Also, I will have check into the size of my font files. The versions in the ".font" folder are at least 50% of the file size of the ones in the "/opt/. . . . ." LO font folder and the ones in the archived file you pointed to in one of your posts.

So if I do not get the issue, and my "Libertine" fonts are different from yours, then it may actually be something in the font files.

In other words, both PDF files are returning the same font, Linux Libertine G, but the one created with LibO will not find "official" on a word search, whereas the one created with AOO will. A copy and paste from the LibO/PDF file will produce the "offichial" spelling, but a copy and paste from the AOO/PDF file will produce "official."

Both of my files, whether created with LibO or AOO use the same font, Linux Libertine G. Again, I'm using AOO 3.4.1 and LibO on Win7 and Adobe Reader.

And, most importantly, I don't even have Libertine O installed on my system, so AOO can't be picking it up.

I got them, thanks.

They are exactly the same as my PDF - the text appears fine but if I
copy and paste it then it looks like this: "This his the offichial

Cheers, Jonathan

I just sent you two files; an AOO odt, and an AOO generated PDF.

It is a font issue. I suspect that the non-problem with AOO that VA is
seeing is because AOO does not natively pick up the LO TTF Linux
Libertine G. It didn't even pick it up in ~/.fonts. Instead it will pick
up a Type 1 Linux Libertine O font. I figured this out by looking at the
PDF File|Properties|Font.

I ended up specifically installing the G fonts in AOO 3.5.0; _that_
allowed me to use G TTF instead of O Type 1. Now, when using the G TTF
font I experience the exact same issue as on LO. Moving the cursor from
the 'T' to the 'h' in 'This' causes the cursor to skip directly to 'i'.

Opening the TTF Linux Libertine G font in Fontforge generates these

The following table(s) in the font have been ignored by FontForge
 Ignoring 'Feat' SIL Graphite layout feature table
 Ignoring 'Glat' Graphite glyph attribute table
 Ignoring 'Gloc' Graphite glyph location in Glat table
 Ignoring 'Silf' SIL Graphite rule table
 Ignoring 'Sill' (unspecified) SIL Graphite table
The glyph named Tcommaaccent is mapped to U+021A.
 But its name indicates it should be mapped to U+0162.
The glyph named tcommaaccent is mapped to U+021B.
 But its name indicates it should be mapped to U+0163.

I don't know enough about fonts to comment otherwise.

So I keep on reading. But apparently not in the Debian or Ubuntu

Perhaps I'm missing the 'graphite' bits? When I follow the instructions
in<> everything matches.

Are you able to post the PDF that you produce? I'd like to take a look
at it with some PDF editing tools?

Sent to you directly. Both the 3.5 and 3.6 versions.
