    Text moves after export to PDF

      InDesign CS5 (7.0.4), Mac OSX 10.6.8

       

      See screenshots for clarity.

      On the left is my InDesign file, on the right is my PDF created by choosing Export > Adobe PDF (Print) > Adobe PDF Preset: Press Quality with bleeds.

       

      This is two paragraphs in one text box. Why does part of the first paragraph move? It looks like a massive baseline shift was put on.

       

      Just tested something else. I tried it with different fonts, the copy moves. I retyped it in a new text box, the copy moves. If I don't use the Indent Here character (the dagger), the copy doesn't move (HEY, A CLUE!) So why does the indent here character cause the copy to move in just this paragraph and not in the other 30+ instances in this file?

       

      To get this job to the printer I copied the affected text boxes to a new layer and hid that layer, then in the first layer I converted just those text boxes to outlines and sent them a new PDF.

       

      Any insight would be appreciated.
