I use an external PDF writer for some documents where LO fails to convert vector formats correctly. That said, if I use the external converter I loose all my cross referencing and TOC links that LO does very well in my opinion.

For Windows, I do not remember anything about Nitro PDF Writer. I have on Windows [and Linux] a PDF writer as my default printing "device". For Windows, I use doPDF. I have used it for years now.

The only advantage, if any, for external PDF writers, may be in their specific options that may be different than what LibreOffice has in their "export to PDF" options.

It use to be an issue that LO's PDF filter did not embed properly all of the "specialty fonts" I tend to use. As far as I have been told, this should no longer be an issue, though I have not fully checked this. I do know that the resulting "export to PDF" file size is different than what is created by my Ubuntu's system CUPS-PDF "printer" [and Windows doPDF]. The difference can be 10% to 40% larger or smaller, depending on what options are used and what fonts are embedded into the document.

For most of my LibreOffice work, I use the export to PDF option. It is just easier. But I do know that for Windows 7 and 10, doPDF works just fine with LibreOffice. So maybe you might want to look into trying that package instead of Nitro.

I just looked. . . Nitro PDF seems to be a paid package, after the 14 day trial. "doPDF" is free to use and not any trial. I cannot afford to pay for my software packages. "doPDF" seems to me as the best free PDF printer for Windows 7. Plus, as I stated before, it works with LibreOffice on Windows 7 and 10. Since your "Nitro" package seems not to work, try this free option, if you do not want to use LibreOffice's PDF exporting capabilities.

LibreOffice does not need a PDF printer, so this is not a bug. You can
produce a better PDF using the integrated feature, which has been
available for ages.
