Text gets weirdly distorted / garbled when saving as PDF

Hi, I've been struggeling with this problem for some time now. Always when I want to save my PSD as PDF some strange things happen with the text. I usually just use the stock export presets. I can't really identify the cause, it happens quite randomly but also quite often. Sometimes the text will be like in the example image but sometimes certain text parts will just be upside down. I attached the export options. I use a MacBook Pro M1.

Ok, thanks.

Does it happen if you replace the background by a regular pixel layer? Were you trying to save on space by using a color fill?

Are you seeing the issue at 100% magnification in the PDF?

Yes, it also happens when replacing the background with a pixel layer. The PSD in this case was a layout I downloaded so I don't know why they used a color fill. And yes, the issue persists with all orders of magnitude.
