When I save a Pages document to a PDF, my bullet points either disappear or show up as exclamation points in the PDF.  Help me please... on a deadline.

    Which font are you using?

    HAve you restarted your computer lately? Done any maintenance lately?

    Is it in just specific document or in several? If it just in this document it sometimes help to copy the the content and paste into a new blank one.

     

    Quit Pages > delete the com.apple.iwork.pages.plist from Users / your name / Library / Preferences folder

     

    Sometimes it can help to start the computer in safe mode by holding down the Shift key from when you hear the starting chime until you see a bar appearing on the screen. Be patient. then restart in normal mode again.

    It is a preference file that helps Pages remember your settings in Pages. Sometimes it gets corrupt and weird behaviour starts which can seem unrelated. By deleting the file Pages creates a new fresh preference file.
