I am using epstopdf. The postscript file was generated by Visio.

I notice that the first character in each string is rendered as a type 3
font, the remaining characters are correctly rendered as type 1 fonts.
Is this a known bug with epstopdf? Or should I suspect the postscript
file? My knowledge of postscript is minimal, but there is noting to
distinguish the first character from the remaining (following is an

/_Times-Roman 12.0000 Tf

  0.000 0.000 0.000 1.000 k
( Vpdk\r) Tx

The "V" is rendered as type 3 font, the "pdk" as type 1 fonts.

Thanks for any help,
