SAS 9.2 ODS PDF files are not searchable

Hi,

We have been using report formatting ODS macros with SAS 9.1.3 to generated PDF outputs. We have recently upgraded to SAS 9.2. Same ODS macros successfully generate PDF output, but it looks like the character set that ODS is now using is different:

Thanks,
IJG
