Using Lenovo ThinkPad and Adobe Acrobat DC to create my files/proposals. I have made templates so I will either combine files, or I will edit a previous proposal if it requires nearly identical documents with minor changes and save as a new file. HOWEVER, the images below (the second image is actually a page full of text if you can believe!) keep happening to my files - especially when I Reduce File Size in order to be compliant. I only use Arial or Times New Roman (as that's required). If I select the text box and change the style to Bold or Italic and back again, it typically brings the characters back. But I don't want to do that to every text on every page...
**I'm not the most tech saavy and (I think) I've tried the embedding fonts, but maybe I'm not doing it correctly. Can someone please help save me/my sanity??
Would you mind sharing the version of the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 22.1.20117 (Win), 22.1.20112 (Mac). Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.
Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check.
I do have the most recent version, that was always my first check. It doesn't seem to be any specific file - the files on their own are perfectly fine, but it's when I combine them into a larger document that they decide to "freak out". We decided to un-assign and re-assign my work email so I uninstalled and re-installed Adobe. I'm about to put another document together so we will see! Thank you!!
