The wording of "embed standard fonts" is my problem.

Yes. I tried to find out what LO meant by that; all I can find is that it
refers to 14 Postscript fonts.

The last time I used Export to PDF, not all of the fonts I used were
embedded… If it will embed ALL of  the specialized and decorative fonts I
may use in a document - think holidays and other things that are no where
near business related - then it would be useful.

Do a test. Create a small document using a number of your specialised fonts
and their characters (plus one or more standard fonts such as Times New
Roman). Then:

1. Export as PDF, but do not check "Embed standard fonts". Call this PDF1.
2. Export as PDF again, but this time check "Embed standard fonts". Call
this PDF2.

You will notice that PDF1 is smaller than PDF2. Copy these PDF files to a
separate machine (preferably with a different operating system). View the
PDFs. You should find that both PDF1 and PDF2 display perfectly, unless
there is a discrepancy between the standard fonts. I will be happy to test
for you on both Ubuntu and Windows if you attach the PDFs to a reply.

… I use the Insert Special Character option and browse through the
different fonts to select the correct glyph that I need.

That didn't even occur to me! I have just tried it, and it works perfectly.
Thank you; this is my solution (if not the answer to why it is like that)!
