I've always considered LO (and prior OOo) does an excellent job in pdf
conversion. My pdf files where compact and efficient as I always did these
font substitutions to use the 35 Adobe font:

closely related font (Times NewRoman, Liberation Serif) > Times
closely related font (Arial, Liberation Sans) > Helvetica
closely related font (Courier New, Liberation Mono) > Courier

By doing so, the substituted fonts ARE NOT embedded in the pdf file and the
pdf reader uses the always included Adobe fonts to render the pdf file. The
result was perfect!

Was? Yes, now LO4.2 seems to ALWAYS embed all fonts, even if I don't want
this behavior. I would prefer to have an option not to embed all fonts to
revert to the pre 4.2 behavior. Maybe this option is possible in the
advanced settings, but I didn't find it.
