While I don't have Libertine O on my Win7 system, I do have it on my
Ubuntu Wubi installation, so I tested it, and as I expected, I didn't
get any automatic ligatures with Libertine O. Without the ligatures, it
worked fine on a PDF export.
Then, I copied the sentence in Libertine O and, using the Insert/Special
Character menu, I manually replaced the "T" "h" in "This" and the "f"
"f" "i" in "official" with a "Th" "ffi" ligature in the Libertine O
font. This time when I converted the file to a PDF, the search function
found "This" in the Libertine G with automatic ligatures and Libertine O
without ligatures, but not the Libertine O with the manually inserted
"Th" ligature. But, it found "official" in both the Libertine O without
ligatures and with the manually inserted "ffi" ligature.
This was done with Libertine 22.214.171.124 on Ubuntu 12.04 with Document Viewer.
I then ran the same test in AOO in Ubuntu and the PDF search found
"This" in Libertine G with automatic ligatures and Libertine O without
ligatures but not Libertine O with ligatures. It found "official" in all
Curiouser and curiouser.
I ran a test where I typed the same sentence twice on one page. On the
first line, I applied Libertine

My apologies: you are correct. I've tested again with LO 3.5, 3.6, and
AOO 3.5.0 and Acroread 9.x (all linux) and found the same. I tested on a
clean system; Linux Libertine O is installed on my primary system from
'fonts-linuxlibertin' (which btw work without issue).
Do you get automatic ligatures with Libertine O? I thought that with
OpenOffice and its forks, one needed Libertine G (with the Graphite
port) to obtain the automatic ligatures and other advanced typographic
features. I didn't think those features were available in Libertine O
with AOO or LibO.
