Word 2007 distorts text when save as pdf

Hello, This is really annoying. Everytime we try to save word doc as pdf it condenses the text?

See screenshot click here help would really be appreciated

Bit previous there wiz-king. Lightshot is Free, an addon to take screenshots and has ability to upload screenshots and create direct links to image.

doubledouble, don't know what's causing some of the letters to be squashed like that, maybe it's the display, have you tried zooming view in/out to see if they then look ok? IMHO it should not affect printing the .pdf - they won't be squashed when you print.

Hi thank you for the reply.

Its the same printed out and display isnt zoomed or anything.

On the same pc another users version of word can save doc as pdfs as normal. Ive uninstalled office and still happens.

Could it be something to do with styles or themes in word 2007? I cant get any fonts either.

Aprreciate any help as we use this function alot and its really hampering us

You could try running Words Detect and Repair feature click here

Other than that compare settings with the user that has no problem.

Finally figured this out. We didnt have a printer set as default so couldnt see any fonts except for device font 10. The pdf save is normal now.
