On Mac, I used DejaVu LGC Bold to add a Russian strapline in our .odt office letterhead model. I created a
PDF (by export direct from NeoOffice). Opened on Mac just to check visually - no problem.
I sent both pdf and odt files to my colleague in Yalta-Gurzuf, working on Windows with DejaVu LGC
installed. He reported that the Russian 'm' character in both files was 'blank space'.
I can send a copy of the original file to assist trace the cause of the problem, if necessary.
I think this is not related to the fonts but can you attach your .odt file to
the bug report?
