Not only is the word PDF not in the selection, it can't be selected at all (nor can any of the other words in small caps).

Have you actually copied the text and tried to paste it elsewhere? It may be that the visual of the selection doesn't show the selection correctly, but it may contain the the actual text.

Biblio:
Yes, I already tried embedding the fonts, it didn't make a difference.

I just tried copying some text with small caps and pasting it somewhere and the text in small caps was not there.

toyotadesigner:
I guess the small caps font is exported as vectors (text converted to lines), which could be if there is a lock in the font for copy protection. Some time ago I have experienced the same problem with a commercial page layout, where the font could not be selected in the PDF due to some sort of copyright protection.

I don't think it's about copy protection. Rather, it seems something doesn't work as expected when using OpenType features ("Font Features" in Scribus 1.5.6.1). It's not just small caps that cannot be copied from PDF, but text figures (i.e. Old Style figures) too, if they aren't default figures for the font which is used. This is a serious issue in those publications which are intended for reading on screen and if it's expected to have full access to the text (e.g. courses, manuals, etc.).

Only incidentally related to this isuue: I do recall having a similar problem with XeLaTeX and OTF fonts, but not with LuaLaTeX.

Biblio:
Indeed, it is not about copy protection, I used fonts with the OFL font license.

I noticed another problem too, and I made another post, but no one has replied to it. When adding links to something on another page of the same document, the width is taken to be the height of the document (even though it is not a square), and to the coordinates are useless.
