How do I instruct Acrobat X Pro to ensure that the width of space characters is identical to that of visible characters. Does anyone know? Thank you.
When I convert my *.txt files to PDF, I have discovered that each visible alphanumeric character in the PDF file occupies 1.3 mm on the printed page. And where there is a space character in the text file, the corresponding space in the PDF file occupies 2.0 mm on the printed page. This explains why my columns of characters do not line up correctly. In the text file from which the PDF was created, the visible characters and the whitespace characters have exactly the same width, as they should, when measured on a printed page.
