I have a Word document with some symbols, and I need to save this document as pdf instead of docx to make sure that the format is kept the same (Word 2013)

However, when I save as pdf and open this pdf file, I find that these special symbols are corrupted. What should I do? I even tried to do the conversion online and the number of corrupted symbols increased.

Snapshot of the symbol in Word:

And this is how it looks in pdf when I save as pdf:

  • Rather than Save as PDF, have you tried the Microsoft Print to PDF option, or other printer drivers, such as in Nitro PDF? – DrMoishe Pippik Jan 4 '17 at 5:39
