Subject: [gentoo-user] Fonts (Ariel?) broken in acroread

1 I don't know when exactly, but sometime in the past 6 months or so,
2 font support in acroread got broken. Most of the PDF documents
3 generated by MS Office don't render correctly. I think the most common
4 font that doesn't render properly is Ariel. Acroread didn't used to
5 have any problems with these documents, and viewing them with out
6 applications seems to work OK.
8 What gets rendered for Ariel is a _very_ ugly, very light, sans serif
9 font where lower-case letters are about 1/3 the height of upper case
10 letters. It's really horrid. Here's comparison of some text rendered
11 by acroread (left) and emacs (right):
15 Acroread _used_ to render this document correctly.
17 I've asked Google but all the hits are about asian font support.
19 Any ideas what I'm missing?
