When i make a simple Form in libreoffice-writer and export as pdf and then try to fill the textboxes with text i see the text normally while editing the textbox. when i "leave" the textbox however the inserted text gets reformatted and cramped into a single space as if each character is overwriting the previous character.

Hi @Bernd Lauert,

My guess is that there's some issue with fonts (either what type of font faces are available, or how they're rendering in the PDF, or.... etc...).

Could you upload an example PDF here?

It would also be helpful to know the following:

  • Versions of: OS, LO, PDF viewer
  • Does the PDF exhibit the same behavior on a different computer?
  • Did this issue start recently?
