When I convert this Word document there are random dots or periods at the top half of the page. It's only happening with this document, and the Word version does not have those dots/periods. This started happening recently, within the last month. It's easy to remove those dots in the PDF file, but I'll have 20-30 of these in one file and it's frustrating.

Looks like they might be microdots, put into the PDF at the beginning of every paragraph.

When you exported to PDF, did you check an option for "Advanced" tagging? If so, uncheck it and export a new PDF.

I save the file as "Save as Adobe PDF" and there are no tagging options. I only see "View Result" and "Restrict Editing" as boxes I can check and they are both unchecked.
