InDesign 2.01: Missing characters when exporting to pdf - Adobe Indesign Windows

Hi! My doents have suddenly started to lose characters when I export to pdf. It doesn't happen when printing with distiller. I have tried removing and reinstalling InDesign. The characters missing are only in the combination "fl", where ever they appear in the text. The font affected is only Times New Roman PS (so far), font size 12. If I widen the space between the characters they appear again after exporting, so it seems to be a problem with character spacing. Any suggestions? I don't like checking whole doents for these kinds of errors... Thanx...

    Turn off ligatures.

    Turned off ligatures and now it works. By the way, only selected text is affected by the change.

    Tanks Bob!
