Every time that I have tried to create a PDF from a text file, the columns dont align. The default Notepad setting I use to view a text file is Courier New which shows the columns aligned. How can I set defaults in Acrobat Pro 9 to have columns align?
By definition a plain text file has no font, so it cannot be monospaced. Acrobat converts plain text using Times, this cannot be changed.
As TSN suggests to create a PDF from a text file with a specific choice of font and formatting you must print from another application.
You might want to be sure you are embedding the fonts. I just tried NotePad and it appears to use the fonts specified. However, that may not be preserved if you do not embed the fonts on printing (use the Press or Print job settingsm not Std).
