I'm building a PDF form from LO Writer (LibreOffice Version: on LinuxMint 17.3). The generated PDF works fine with the default LinuxMint PDF viewer (Evince 3.10.3) and with Foxit Reader 9.0 on Win7. But I fail to fill-in the form with Acrobat Reader DC on Win7, the text entered is replaced by dots and an error message is displayed, complaining about missing LiberationSans police (The exact error message is in French: "Impossible de trouver ou de créer la police LiberationSans. Il se peut que certains caractères s'affichent mal ou s'impriment mal.").

I tried various PDF export options but I always got the same behavior. Did you ever met the issue ? How can it be solved ?
