I have converted pdf to word, the font says it is Arial through out document but it looks different throughout document?  This is for a client of mine so I do not know at this stage how the document was before it became a PDF, however there are drawings and therefore wonder whether it was created in a design package with a different type of typeface to word documents.

Hi Maximax,

Thanks for sharing the detailed information. This is correct, that the quality of converted document also depends on the type of pdf you start with.

As shared above, there is a possibility that the document was originally created using different fonts and then exported from Indesign to a pdf format. While exporting the document to pdf, may the font has not been embedded to the file correctly.

You may read this help document- Text is garbled in a converted file | Adobe Export PDF and if possible, please share the file with us.

We would test the same at our end and see whether issue is reproducible or not.

"You can share the file with us via email. And you can send it to the email that is shared via private message. Please do mention your forum thread in the subject"

Regards,

Akanchha
