strange font behaviour

Asked by Felipe Figueiredo


in a particular PDF I have, the letters seem strangely connected, and some appear as symbols. The same file appears nicely in xpdf and adobe reader.

I'm including a screenshot.

How can I provide better information to get it fixed?

I can't find out on how to attach the screenshot, so I'll open a bug report.

I get the same problem. It seems that this only happens when the characters are not embedded to the PDF. To check, click have the PDF file open, then check under properties under file and look under the Fonts tab.
