I've been bringing sheet music PDFs into Publisher, and most seem to come out fine, however I've run into several recently which have errors -- notes and lines in the wrong place. It doesn't matter if I drag them into Publisher, or "place" them in Publisher, or even just open them in Publisher, the errors are always there and always the same. These PDFs primarily contain text and music fonts. I've attached one as an example.

I don't have the fonts you used in your document to try.

BTW, does Publisher ask you to replace missing fonts?

Which app did you use to produce the original notation?  Was it Finale?  Perhaps have a look at this thread.

I do see the problem when your supplied pdf is opened in APub.  Screenshot below.

No, Publisher is not reporting any missing fonts for me. I'm using Sibelius here, not Finale. I suppose Sibelius isn't embedding the fonts?

One thing that is interesting: if I print to file using "Microsoft print to PDF" instead of letting Sibelius generate the PDF on its own, the resulting PDF will be slightly different when pulled into Publisher. They will look the same in all other programs (without errors), and they'll both be messed up in Publisher, but messed up in slightly different ways. I suppose I could try a different print to PDF program, just don't have anything else installed currently.

I realised after posting previously that the Properties of the pdf file showed it was created in Sibelius, latest version.  :/

I also have that same version of Sibelius; I wonder if there is anything to be gained or learned if you were to post here or PM to me the actual Sib file which you used to generate the pdf, for me to open on my machine, export to pdf and "see what happens"?
