You are converting from PDF, right? If so, this is a known problem for Adobe Reader. The fact is it may sometimes send text to printers not as text but as images.
This issue is known to happen only with Adobe Reader and only for some documents. The fact is printing feature in Adobe Reader is oriented towards printing on real printers and getting a hard copy of documents. As it does not matter whether text is represented withtext or with images when it is printed on paper, Adobe Reader seems not to be over-scrupulous to represent text as text when sending it to printers.

Yes, this solution should work because it is the Adobe Reader application that has this quirk of sending some text to printers as images. Word is known to always print text in text and not in image format.

So what you're saying is use Adobe Reader for this instead of Word? I'm a bit confused.

If your original document is in Word format, you may convert it directly with Print2Flash. However, if your original document is in PDF format and you want to retain search function for Chinese symbols, you may need first to convert it to Word and only then convert it with Print2Flash.
