except that my libreoffice write does not have an option to export as epub, nor to import a pdf.

After upgrading Libreoffice from version 6.1.2 to 6.4.3 text is missing from document in pdf version. There are only images. Text color, formatting, style, font doesn’t matter.

Is this an error in LO? I’ve overlined some text in Writer, and changed the text color (blue). Shows properly on the screen, but when I output to a pdf, while the text and underlining is the proper color, the overline is black. Is there a setting that I’m overlooking to force the overline to the font color?

I have created a fillable pdf using Libreoffice version 7.1 and exported it as a pdf. I am using a Mac. When the form is filled out on a Mac – and the person returns their filled form to me, I can see all fields filled (free text boxes, yes/no and tick boxes) but when someone else fills out the form on a PC using windows only the free text is visible to me – I can not see the yes/no boxes selected or any other check boxes they have filled out. Is there someway to fix this?
