    pdf from MS Word "Save as PDF" looks terrible on Linux

      Hi,

       

      If I create a PDF from MS Word 2007/2010 using Microsoft's "Save as PDF" feature, it works fine but the pdf looks terrible in Adobe Reader 9 on Linux.

      The generated PDF looks great on Windows.  If I select File -> Properties -> Fonts, it says Calibri is embedded, but Arial and Times New Roman are using "Actual Font: Adobe Sans MM".  If I generate the PDF by printing the word document to the Adobe pdf printer, the resulting pdf file looks good on Linux - again Calibri is embedded, but it uses Adobe Sans MM for Arial, and Adobe Serif MM for Times New Roman..

       

      The pdf generated by Microsoft's tool:
