Dears,

 

I am facing this propblem for  quit some time now, 

I have this report that i need to update its numbers on a monthly base, but sometimes when iam done with changeing the numbers, and i exsport it, while reviewing, some words are missing their first letters, when going back to the Ai document, the first letter of some words is missing, once i click on it with the text tool it shows, so i need to click on all the words that has missing letter in order for them to show and then re-export it again.

 

any idea why is this happening ?

i have a video that shows the propbelm for your reference 

best regards to you all

the problem doesn’t occur all the time, so I need to wait until it happens again and then take the screenshot for you.

 

Also: does the same happen when you use Save for Web or Export for screens?

I didn't try it, but the problem is not about exporting, because as you can see from the video i attached in the charactera disappear in the illustrator file itself. I just don't notice it until exporting, then I realize that 1st character of the words is missing.

please check the full video here

 

 

Which language is your system?
English,

 

Which font is it and does it happen with other fonts as well?

Helvetica, it doesnt happen with any other file actully, even when I am using Helvetica.

If it is just this file, then probably it's an issue with the file itself.

 

What you can do is copy everything and paste into a new file.

Don't delete the other file.

 

I it still doesn't work, try and copy everything but the text that has the issue and paste to a new file.

Then re-create those texts.
