Square Box Characters Showing up in PDF Text When Saving a Job Report Using Adobe Acrobat PDF Viewer

Last Updated: Thursday, March 30th 2023

This applies to users who have Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader  to view the PDF Job Reports in Motivity.

If you are finding that when you save the PDF to your computer and re-open it to find text replaced with square box characters then this may help sort the problem out.

Open up the Adobe PDF application on your computer.

Click Edit> Preferences and go to "Documents" (This is inside of Adobe) unckeck the "Save As optimizes for Fast Web View.

You may also need to close your browser and re-open it again for it to take effect.

(It appears that Adobe is removing some of the embedded fonts from the PDF documents so is then unable to display the characters when re-opening it)
