PDF documents displaying via the viewpdf macro are all italicized

I have written several documents in Word that I then turned into PDF files via Acrobat. I next uploaded the PDFs to Confluence 3.5, and used the viewpdf macro to have them display on the Confluence page. For some reason, these PDFs that display in Confluence have all letters and words italicized on screen. When I look at the uploaded files, they are fine. It is just the versions displaying via the macro that are all italicized.

How can I fix this issues and prevent it from happening again in the future? Thanks.

I notice there is a bug report raised to Atlassian, please see CONF-19819. You may comment the behavior in the ticket as well.

Thanks, John.

In the case of my pdf issue, the layers all render properly, as do the words - almost. For whatever reason, the font displays as italicized. In this case the font is Arial.
