    Some text in Chrome is broken up & unreadable


    Today the text in drop-down menus, lists, and other random areas is broken up. Sometimes if I scroll the affected area off screen and back on, it will become readable.
    Edge seems to work fine. I installed the latest Windows updates today(Wednesday, 3/13), and I'm not sure if it started before or after that. Attached is an example.Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks,
    Rusty
    P.S. As I was writing this, I found that if I highlight an entire word or sentence, I can't edit it. I must place the cursor next to it and manually delete or backspace to type and change it. Maybe this is a related clue?

  2. PDF text is rectangular & unreadable


    Our Senior Center provides us with monthly pdf newsletters.
    --- At their office those newsletters are readable.

    They have a third-party company that sends them out via an email distribution list.
    --- Until June 2018 they were readable.
    --- However, starting in July 2018 something changed, the text is no longer readable as characters are in rectangular form.
    --- The graphics for events & ads were still fine.

    That's 4 months in a row now: I'd like to investigate possible causes.
    --- Advice please
    --- On those rectangular boxes, is there a technical name for them?

    Don't know exact name for it but it's caused by unknown font with unrecognized or incompatible characters. Which PDF reader is that ? Some have own fonts (Adobe Reader for instance) and some, specially if you view it in a browser, use system fonts.
