Times-Italic font is displayed incorrectly in Acrobat 6.0 - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I upgraded my Acrobat 5.0 to 6.0 (and have recently updated it to 6.0.1). When I view pdf files created by others (I have had these files for years), the Times-Italic font in those files is displayed incorrectly. The text in Times-Italic almost appears to be in subscript size and mode. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat 6.0 several times with no change.

    Default Times-Italic font is displayed incorrectly in Acrobat 6.0

    I upgraded my Acrobat 5.0 to 6.0 (and have recently updated it to 6.0.1). When I view pdf files created by others (I have had these files for years), the Times-Italic font in those files is displayed incorrectly. The text in Times-Italic almost appears to be in subscript size and mode. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat 6.0 several times with no change. When I view the properties of the offending text, the properties box shows the Font as Times-Italic. The font size in the properties box is what it should be (e.g., 7.97 pt), but the displayed size or vertical positioning doesn't match the displayed size and vertical positioning of the neighboring text in Times upright font in the same size.

    I have a feeling that if I reformat my hard drive, reinstall Windows and then do a fresh install of Acrobat 6.0 (rather than an update from Acrobat 5.0), the problem will disappear, but I am trying to avoid doing that. I will appreciate any pointers in this matter.

    Thanks.

    I am having a remotely similar problem. Windows 2000 with Acrobat 6.0 seemed to work fine, but when I updated to 6.0.1 appeared to introduce a problem. When I convert a Powerpoint file to Adobe PDF, a TrueType Font called AGOpus does not get picked up properly. Upon viewing the PDF file in Acrobat, this font gets jumbled (i.e., not legible). I went to the Distiller, confirmed that the font file c:\winnt\fonts\ is listed in the font location window and also confirmed that the font is in the fonts folder itself. It simply does not get picked up properly in the PDF file. Please help!

    Ravi, go to file> doent properties and choose fonts.
    Has the times font been emebdded?
    If not recreate the pdf using press job options.

    W. looks like you have to work with a dodgy font.See if you can get a better version of the font, or use a different font altogether.
