Strange result with pdf created in Libreoffice

    I like these fonts but, infortunately, I can't use them : I'm a teacher and in my school, we use toshiba e-studio 855 copiers. I write texts in Libreoffice (any version produces same result, actually the latest one, 4.2). In order to print my documents, I convert them, using Libreoffice interface, in pdf format with embedded fonts. Then I transfer these pdf files on an usb key that I plug in the copier ; but, the result is unusuable : bad letters, vertical lines added...just wasting paper.
    Then, I sadly change the font of the whole document in times new roman and then everything work properly. I wonder why these beautiful free fonts doesn't work ...I've tried ttf instead of otf ones with no succes.
    If someone get an idea....

    This sounds like an issue with the copier/printer, not being able to extract the fonts from the pdf. The manual ( lists a lot of built-in fonts, and ways of creating substitution tables, but no statement that I saw at a quick glance that you could define any new ones.

    Sounds like you should complain to Toshiba.
