I have a PDF that I'm trying to edit. While in Acrobat, editing the text causes no problems and the document looks perfect. When I save it and open it in Mac PDF Preview or Safari web viewer, the document looks fine too. However, when I open it in Chrome's web viewer, the new text appears a bit thinner and different.
This same issue appears to be discussed here for InDesign: Does anybody know why type might render strangely when viewing a PDF in Chrome, Firefox and IE?
However, that post is rather old and I'm not sure why this is still occurring? I'm worried that the people I send it to will see the incorrect fonts. How can I fix this without using a different font? It's "ColaborateLight" font by the way, if that matters.
EDIT: I'm also noticing that the font giving me issues has "Identity-H" encoding while the others have ANSI encoding. Is this relevant at all?
Chrome has its own PDF viewer that is causing the problem
But is there a way to prevent this from happening regardless of which viewer is used?
Not when you are dealing with bugs in non Adobe viewers. When something like good even in Apple's Preview, then there definitely is something wrong with Chrome's PDF viewer.
