Question 9T9T9T Formatting

I've started to notice that occasionally when I open documents, words that are bolded (using a saved templated format) have tiny little periods attached to them. If I remove the formatting, the words have 9T9T9T codes around them.



For Example, something that should look like this:"... select Reset to Default." Now looks like this: "... select 9T9T9TReset9T9T9T 9T9T9Tto9T9T9T 9T9T9TDefault9T9T9T."

The document I'm working on now, did not have this formatting last night when I closed the file, and today when I open from OneDrive, everything that is bold has been effected.

I'm using Word 365/Office 10.

Does anyone know what is happening here?

Thanks for the idea Charles!

Here are some screenshots of what it looks like before and after I've cleared the formatting.

In the second shot I've highlighted the new styling that is being created.

Out of interest, how did the ZWAdobeF font come into the equation?
I came across the ‘font’ a few years ago when doing some research on Adobe Acrobat PDF creation.
It shouldn’t be used as a font as it isn’t really a valid font:
Quote:
The ZWAdobeF font is a special hack installed by Adobe Acrobat for use by some of its PDFMaker components for use as a marker in creating PDF files from Microsoft Office files.Do not delete the font if you have Acrobat installed on the system.
It is otherwise useless to end users.
Quote:
Do not use the ZWAdobeF font for any purpose whatsoever. It is not really a “valid” font. On the other hand, as long as you have Acrobat installed, don't delete it.
Just make believe it doesn't exist and you won't get into any trouble!!!

I’m sure I can remember that it can get ‘into’ documents by pasting certain copied text from Adobe created PDFs into a Word document, but can’t remember the details.

Good question about that Adobe font. I have no idea how it got there. I can only guess....

I have another font installed on my machine (I author with Avenir) that is not a common font. Sometimes when I send documents for SME review, I save a copy of my Word Docs as PDFs to send so it maintains the "look and feel" that the final published copy will have regardless if the end user has the same font installed. This WAS one of those documents... so maybe in that save process Adobe is injecting code into my style sheet? Would that make sense?

Yes! The is the exact issue I'm running into! For me it is BOLD words vs. super/subscripts. Great find, thanks for sharing.
