Extra square character(s) showing up randomly in PDF export from FMP

Post

     A lot of our employees generate PDFs from FileMaker Pro, but sometimes random square characters show up in those PDFs. Those squares usually disappear if the PDF is generated a second time (Save as PDF). We generate long PDFs, so it is a pain that we cannot rely on output from FileMaker to be consistent. As far as I can tell, the extra character(s) is created during PDF creation; the character(s) doesn't show up in the "Preview" before export. Please see the attached example image (Selection_023.png). 

     Any Ideas? These PDFs are used for business, so it doesn't look very professional if squares are showing up randomly :(
