Font on Word/Excel Doents Becomes Smaller When Converted to PDF - Adobe Acrobat Windows

When I convert Word and Excel doents to PDF, the font becomes noticeably smaller. I can adjust the doents somewhat before converting to PDF by doing a print preview after I set the printer to Adobe PDF and adding lines to make sure the pages break where they are supposed to. However, the font is still noticeably smaller in the pdf version. I tried de-selecting the "Use printer metrics to lay out doent" option in Word, but that didn't make a difference. Any ideas?...

    Have an example?

    If you have, for instance, 12 point Arial in your Word doc, what does it become in the PDF?
