mmmm, maybe we should revert this, there is a bug when exporting to pdf using embeded fonts see

Is there any other way to make this work? Or hope that upstream will fix it?

apparently we will have to wait upstream. We could let the envvar but not the package, the package an not the envvar or none, but with both vcl=qt5 will be used and the problem in generating pdf will happen.

@hmollercl based on your comments we're holding up on this one right?

@kc2bez as i said with the other fix, I think we should just keep rolling with this and test it hard. It doesn't hurt to have it a little broken in the development release, contrary to what folks may imagine XD

Ok @wxl , sounds good. I will let you upload this one though ;)
