We are creating a PDF that contains code snippets that we are
encouraging users to copy and paste into their own applications.

We have noticed that the code loses spaces in the PDF output. So
the following bit of code:
myResult = dataqueue.add(12, 3)
if myResult == false then
print("Failed to add 12 to the
dataqueue")
end

Would come out as:
myResult = dataqueue.add(12, 3)
if myResult == false then
print("Failed to add 12 to the
dataqueue")
end

Not the end of the world (the code still works), but it would be
nice if they could maintain the formatting. Has anyone found a way
around this?

Text is created from Word 2003 and converted to PDF using Acrobat
Distiller 8.

Regards,

Barb
