Garbled text on PDF export

Recommended Posts

Have an issue with exporting to PDF, some of the titles and lots of segments of text are garbled (random characters). The body text affected is in italics. The document is an imported PDF (from InDesign, I think) and I had to replace the fonts; it may be related to my trying to use "different" fonts instead of all sub-styles, as I couldn't find a set which contained the whole lot and had to add from another source (and I'm not a font management expert!).

Not sure why some, but not all titles are affected, though.

Any thoughts?

Part of the problem with your .afpub document may be due to the fact that each line of your text is a paragraph of its own! At least, this is how my version of Publisher interprets your file. Try replacing the paragraph returns with a blank and see if it makes any difference. :)
