Hi all

I posted this to the Austechwriter list this morning - no responses yet so
I thought I'd try you lot.

I have been asked to create a PDF of a Word document that includes a lot of
In the Word, doc, the equations look fine on screen and they print out fine
as well.
In the PDF, most of the equations have a missing or truncated bracket. It's
always a right-hand bracket that has the problem.

I have tried creating the PDF with all fonts embedded, not embedded,
subset, and not subset.

I have Word 97, Acrobat 4.0, MS Equation 3.0, and I'm working on Windows NT

Does anyone have any insights?
