Symptoms

The problem occurs when using fonts described as OpenType TTF.  This is an Open Type font that is based on True Type outlines.  The file extension for TTF based OpenType fonts is .ttf.

In this example, the fonts have been included in a form and then output in PDF and PCL formats. Font Manager has been used to convert the fonts to PCL.

The result is that the PDF outputs correctly but the PCL does not always convert the text correctly.

In this example in the PCL output, a number of brackets are overlapping the text that they are bracketing. Also, in some instances, spacing between words is missing.
