Description valence 2006-04-06 12:13:59 UTC
For some odd reason, when a document that contains Type 1 fonts (e.g. Palatino
or Avant Garde), the copyright symbol is incorrectly exported into the PDF, and
ends up looking like a single apostrophe.

This seems not to happen with other symbol characters that are nearby in the
font table, and also does not happen with Opentype, Truetype fonts. Even some
Type 1 fonts appear to be OK, such as Helvetica.

I am attaching a source file and the resulting PDF. (The fonts are of course,
not embedded in the odt file.

I should add that I don't see this problem creating a PDF using Adobe Distiller,
and since it doesn't appear to happen in any Type 1 font, you probably need to
use the exact fonts I have (which are part of the original Adobe PS collection).
Let me know if you want me to try anything else.

I just searched the issue database agaain, and I think this might be the same as
issue 63015?
Comment 7 2006-05-17 15:03:54 UTC
Yes, I'm now quite confident that the problem has the same root cause.

Closing duplicate. The case with the copyright symbol should be tested when
issue 63015 is fixed.
