Another issue with Export for Screen > SVG

Dear all,

following my usual workflow which has worked flawlessly until now, I have opened a PDF exported from Avid Sibelius in Illustrator 2022, opening all artboards and saving it as an AI file. 

From there I went File > Export > Export for Screens > select all artboards > set SVG unchecking Minify but leaving all rest unchanged > then Export. 

Apparently files were good, but when inserting them in InDesign 2022 they looked strangely cropped, as if the white margin was cut out. I thought, as it happened in the past, that the problem could have been the export to PDF from Sibelius, so I opened the PDF in Acrobat and went Print Production > Preflight > Fix potential font issues. 

Opening that resulting file in Illustrator and trying to export to SVG resulted in missing font and other font issues (please notice that I had always set SVG export to Convert to Outlines). 

I am attaching the PDF from Sibelius, the resulting AI, and a few exports to SVG for your investigation. 

Thank you for letting me know what may be wrong.

Copyright notice: this PDF is for a publication so it is only for testing purposes. No other use allowed.

PS: I tried to attach the AI but got this error: "The attachment's lindley_capricci content type (application/postscript) does not match its file extension and has been removed." No idea why. Please just open the PDF in AI to reproduce.

PPS: the same workflow from Illustrator 2021 seems not to give the same issues. Could this be a problem with AI 26.3.1?
