Bug - PDFMaker Office Addin converting italic font to italic bold
Using the "Acrobat PDFMaker Office COM Addin" to convert a word document to pdf. If the font is Georgia and is set to italics, when the pdf is viewed in Chrome it shows the italic text as bold. When viewed using Acrobat or Reader, the font appears correct. It does not happen when using any other pdf converter (i.e. office's built-in converter) so it appears to be limited to the PDFMaker tool.
I have replicated this on multiple Windows 10 and Windows 7 computers, and I am using Office 365. This only appears to happen using Georgia font, which is the only font I am able to use for my work documents.
Attachment is a test file that I have converted using PDFMaker (This is a test.pdf). Only the bottom two lines are bold, but if viewed in Chrome the non-bold italic line also appears as bold. The second attachment is the same file but converted with another converter (This is a test2.pdf). This pdf renders correctly in Chrome.
The issue is Chrome's PDF viewer. If you look at the file in IE, Edge, or Acrobat, it will likely be fine. The fix is to make sure the fonts are embedded.
