I am using Adobe Standard X to save a PDF to a Microsoft Word document so that edits can be made. However, spaces appear within words in the output where there were none in the PDF. I have turned off OCR - the PDF is not an image - but to no avail. A coworker with the same setup is not having this issue. Can anyone provide any possible issues I have overlooked? Thank you
Please provide the exact dot version of the software & OS installed at your system .Also check whether is there any update available for the software after going through "help > check for updates "

Open Acrobat, navigate to Help menu & repair the installation.
Please try to recreate the document in Acrobat using PDF Printer or print as image.
Please check whether is this happening with other documents as well or with others as well .
