Current gnucash 2.2.6 has a print-to-pdf functionnality which works for any reports. However, the result PDF document doesn't work with Adobe Reader 9 and Mac Os X document viewer : No characters appears on the document when it is rendered by these PDF viewers. The logo and the table still appears correctly, but all characters are absents.

The same PDF file can be viewed in Adobe Reader 8 and ubuntu evince default PDF viewer without problem.

Steps to reproduce :

1. Open Gnucash
2. Go in the "Report" menu to print a invoice.
3. Once the invoice is opened and ready to print, click on the printer icon and print your document using the build-in PDF printer.
4. Finally, open the saved PDF file with Adobe Reader 9

There is a example PDF file attached to the bug, and a screenshot of what this PDF file looks like when viewed in Adobe Reader 9 .
