Hi, I was curious of LibreOffice uses a third party PDF Export library or it's own native function. Just like to know, if it is third party library, would like to know for possible licensing. Thank you.

Hi @S. Lock,

As @caolan mentioned in the answer to a similar question:

we've got different import filters for each format into writer, calc impress etc. And then an export to pdf mechanism based on our printing infrastructure. So there [are] a lot of moving parts.
