Affinity 1.7.x Messes up Spacing from PDF Imports

Recommended Posts

Issue: When importing a PDF in the 1.7.x versions, with missing fonts, the text loses its proper spacing.

This issue cropped up in the 1.7.x versions.  The 1.6.x versions works as expected.   

I've provided the PDF below the demonstrate the issue.  While I've provided exported PDF's from both 1.6x and 1.7x, this is just for demonstration purposes - the issue can be seen simply by importing the file - there is no issue with the export functionality.


What it should look like:
