Export as PDF all messed up

Hard to say why the cover text is so small in the PDF. Was the text layered above or below the photograph? Are the text and the photo at two different resolutions? Could the photo be interfering with the type?
Sorry I can't be more helpful.

We have a known bug: fonts installed per-user are not visible to the gimp pdf ecport plugin - the plugin can only see system fonts installed for all users.

I don't know if that's what's affecting you.

The way fonts are managed changed in some subtle ways for Windows 10.

I am not sure if this helps - can you install your fonts in the system folder instead?? I am not a Windows user.

I think I figured out the issue. In 2.10.14 I edited an XCF that I had originally created in 2.10.12 When exporting as PDF it was all messed up. I created the XCF in 2.10.14 and all was fine. So, at least for me, I can't use XCFs originally created in 2.10.12

Thanks for your replies, and your help.
