We continue to encounter PDF documents that print incorrectly with fonts and sizes that are substituted or resized from the original document.  This occurs when a PDF is attached after logging in to WebCRD.  In these cases, the fonts are not imbedded in the PDF document that has been attached but the preview will look fine.  The best way to ensure that your documents print correctly and that your department will not be charged for the corrected reprint is to only submit using the SurePDF driver.
