More good options. Thanks!

Two other ways

1 - Try
choose PDF for the format
Then work with the options to see what works for you.

2- Use an external PDF printer

doPDF for Windows [free]
CUPS-PDF for Linux.

Those PDF printers have some good things and bad things.  CUPS-PDF will 
only print as Portrait so Landscape is viewed sideways.  IT is meant to 
keep the paper/image as it would be as a physical printer, which is 
Portrait paper feeding.

SO if Export to PDF is causing problems, then try #1 and if that does 
not help, add the external PDF printers.

Works for me.  My default printer on Ubuntu is CUPS_PDF and on Windows 
is doPDF.

I've run into a strange occurrence in LO 4.1.4. Everytime I export to PDF I
get a error message that "PDF/A-1a forbids a transparency". Clicking OK
allows the export to continue and I don't see any problems in the resultant
PDF, but this is something I've only seen on 4.1.4. This happens with Writer
and Calc. FYI, I'm running OSx Mavericks. Is this a known problem?


Take this with a grain of salt, as I'm running LO (stock Ubu
12.04), but I think you could get away with it by unchecking the
"PDF/A-1a" checkbox under File->Export as PDF... The option should
stick, so LO should produce PDF with transparencies with no fuss from
there on.

My 2 cents.
Thanks for your "2 cents".

It does, in fact, not have any problems using the other PDF modes. Guess
Tagged mode is the standard these days anyhow.
