This bug affects a wide range of Mac fonts on all operating systems, but does affect Helvetica. Is there a way to force a particular font into a certain color? Can I make a font look like a text link or even a graphic? When you use an image to embed a font in Word for Mac, the image is used as the link instead of the font from that font family. In many cases, the link will not work correctly unless the embedding font is changed. This is mainly a graphical problem but can also affect images. To see what works with each color in the different Adobe Mac and Microsoft Office versions, see Word Embedding and links above.
