Error description

  • When symbols, shown using the symbol font, are exported to Word,
    the font is removed, and the symbols appear as normal
    characters.
    
    This has been shown with Greek letters, which appear as latin
    characters when not shown in the correct font.
    
    This is introduced in v9.5
    
    Workaround:
    
    Either:
    
     - convert symbols using the tool provided in the DXL library
    samples, or
     - use the document generation exporter
