Bug ID: 103217
Summary: PDF export of Unicode characters does not work with
hexadecimal code more than four digits
Version: 220.127.116.11 release
Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
OS: Windows (All)
Component: Printing and PDF export
Created attachment 128004
PDF export with Writer 18.104.22.168
It’s a positive note, that hexadecimal code input with more than four digits
works in LibreOffice still since version 5.1. On a less positive note, the PDF
export does not work with hexadecimal code more than four digits.
For example: If I want to type in a LO-Writer document (.odt) the Unicode
Character ‘Mathematical italic small e’ (U+1D452) because I need the correct
‘e’ for Euler’s number, then in my odt the correct character arises (see
“Characters in Unicode.odt”). If I make then a PDF export of this document, all
characters which have more than four digits in their hexadecimal code – e.g.
the ‘Mathematical italic small e’ which has five – are shown with an square or
something curios else (see “Characters in Unicode - PDF export Writer
If I save my odt as docx and open it then with Word 2016, the PDF export there
works fine (see “Characters in Unicode.docx” and “Characters in Unicode - PDF
export Word 2016.pdf”).
I attached the mentioned four files, which illustrate well what is the fail,
because I marked the characters.
