Exporting PDF to EMF - loses characters in word

Jan 28, 2013 6:14 PM

I am exporting a table - save from Excel to PDF. Open in AI and export to EMF.  The word 'Difficult' in one column comes out 'Dif  cult' in every occurance.  It worked with a different table one time last week but now happens with every table I attempt to export. I even went to an extra step of saving the PDF to AI and then exporting to EMF. Same results. Help ...

    Select the text and then turn off ligatures in the Character panel before exporting. Uncheck it in the Character Panel menu.


    "fi" is a common ligature and there appears to be an issue with it exporting.

    And if the ligatures are desired, convert the text to outlined then export.
