pdf/A-1a, not reproducible


Hya,

Goal Using pdf file for presentation. (screen projector)

This is what I did.
Using Libreoffice, I prepared my "odp" file. Then exported it into pdf/A-1a.

this is what happened.
Several lines lost format. Several characters lost.

This WAS my understanding
ISO 19005-1 a.k.a pdf/A-1a " can be reproduced exactly the same way using various software in years to come." as wikipedia reads.

I chose to use pdf/A-1a, because when I opened my odp file by micro$oft program, meny things went wrong. (format, color...)

I understand screen resolution related problem, color calibration problem as well. But, I guess I made some sort of mistake.

Question
What is a problem?
Has anybody else ever run into this?

cheers

If as I gather, the file is not all round compatible, have you tried .rtf, m$.office formats (which everyone seems to manage fairly well), or even html?

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, I tried to export my odp file into ppt. Format was OK, but image went wrong. (strange color!!)

BTW, somebody else had format problem with ppt file (ppt -> ppt)

You can probably copy & paste the image separately. I have found the two to transfer into are rtf, & pdf

Yes, I could have done that.

Problem is that the computers for test run and main hall were different.
