Summary

PDF created with 13.0v4 not displaying text correctly

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v4

Operating system version

OS X 10.9.5

Description of the issue

PDFs generated from FileMaker Pro Advanced 13.0v4 using the Save Records as PDF script step are different to PDFs generated using FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0v5. Text that is bold is not displaying correctly - previous versions (both 11 and 12) generated PDF's correctly.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. create layout in .fmp12 database
2. apply styles to text (e.g. bold)
3. create PDF of layout using FileMaker Pro v12
4. create PDF of layout using FileMaker Pro v13

PDFs will not appear the same - bold text is rendered differently.

Expected result

PDFs should appear the same - no difference in font rendering.

Actual result

PDFs are not the same - v12 PDF is correct, v13 PDF has font rendering issues.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
