OOo losing spaces on PS conversion


Hi,

I am having some trouble with OOo here. On conversion of documents to PS (print to file) and then to PDF (ps2pdf) or when exporting them directly to PDF, almost all spaces get lost, or are replaces by En ones or thin ones. This persists when printing. Options such as importing fonts and increasing resolution do not change anything, nor do the different optimization types.

As I am planning to apply for a job by PDF this had better be correct. Alas, I could not find anything about it on Google (besides it being mentioned once or twice, but no solution was offered).
Would be glad if someone could point me into the right direction.

Thanks,
David

Now that is interesting: When using the online conversion of a OOo document, everything goes well. Formatting is a bit screwed up, as are fonts, and quality is not optimal, but spaces are there.

But well, open version is just available for windows, an money is scarce, so I'll wait if someone can offer a solution. But thanks a lot for your tip!

-v.
