I don't know much about PDF Writer. Since you're not using Acrobat, or Distiller, you should contact the author of PDF Writer to see if there are bugs etc.

Hi...

I have experienced this too. It can be a pain! A way around it I have found is to use Acrobat itself, not the reader but the full package and manually change them.

1. Load up your PDF into Acrobat.
2. Using the text select tool, select the ?? bullet point.
3. Once highlighted, right click and select atributes.
4. Start up Character Map, from Accessories in the Start Menu, and select Symbol font.
5. Select the bullet point character and then copy.
6. Paste into the ?? position on your PDF.
7. Click the Embed check box in the Attributes window.
8. Save the PDF file.

The file should display and print fine on any machine now.
