The substitutions I suggested are for pdf using the most standard fonts,
fonts that don't need to be embedded.

In my day to day work, for letters, documents, it works great. Don't forget
that, by default, LO will embed 35% of the font (if I'm not wrong) unless
you choose PDF/A-1a where the font is completely embedded. The only font
never embedded are the 35 basic Adobe fonts (Helvetica, Courier, Times,
Webdings in bold, italic and normal weight) and the substitution trick makes
sure to use these font. When I use these Adobe fonts, I don't check the
PDF/A-1a box.

As for a pdf printer, quite often you will loose the different hyperlinks of
your document. The file send to the pdf printer must include the compulsory
pdf tags to create hyperlinks, so if your application didn't write the tags
you will get a flat pdf.

To conclude, forget the substitution trickk if you use PDF/A-1a or if your
pdf uses fonts that need to be embedded for the exactness of it's rendering.
