Topic: Embedded Font changes??
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 36018

I have gotten a PDF file from a Macintosh, created on the Macintosh using a font called "Century-Bold". The PDF file was opened on the Macintosh, and I created a form field using that font, and put "curly" quotes in it for some data in the field. "Curly" quotes were created by typing Option-Shift-Bracket.

Now, when I get this PDF file, with embedded fonts on my PC, something strange happends when I open it with either Reader or Acrobat. (BTW, my PC does NOT have this font installed). When it first comes up, the field contains "curly" quotes, correctly displayed. However, when I click into the field with the mouse, suddenly it changes into some kind of "1" or "i" with a small angled slash above it. It still appears to be in this "Century-Bold" font, though.

What's happening here?
