Good day,

MS Word documents I'm printing to PDF are having screen display/print problems where some of the text are having character spacing problems. Characters overlap or squish together.

Sometimes the characters display on screen fine and don't print properly, but sometimes the screen display reflects the problem as well.

I've checked the conversion settings to ensure the fonts are being embedded, then ran preflight (list all potential problems, and output not 100% predictable) and the reports say
the fonts are embedded. This makes me think I don't have font permissions issues - I don't get any indications of this being the problem.

In any document, there are only instances where this problem occurs. I've noticed the glyphs: J, en dash, z, hyphen, em dash, and numbers seem to be problematic. There are probably
others, I haven't gone through each instance exhaustively.

The font family is Scala, and it's a True Type font.

I've read through PDF Reference 1.5 and searched online and read through all whatever documentation I can find. And I'm stuck.

If there's anyone who has suggestions that might assist me I would be very appreciative.

Thanks very much,
