Exporting to pdf un-bolds bolded text

hello! when i try to “export as pdf” or “export directly as pdf” the pdf version will un-bold bolded text. if i use the microsoft “print to pdf” function in the printer menu, however, the text will be exported as expected.

here is a screenshot of an exported pdf: as you can see, all other formatting is maintained, but the bolded text is no longer bolded. why does it do this? how can i fix it?

i’m using windows 10 & libreoffice version

Use a non-variable font. Any support for variable fonts in LibreOffice is accidental.

BTW meta tag is used for issues related to this site. Use writer and pdf whoops, that’s your user name

For similar error but different font, see bug tdf#108497, and variable font support on which it would depend tdf#103596.

Support for embedding variable fonts landed in LibreOffice 7.5, which should fix this issue.
