Strange Typeface
Hi fellows!
Anybody knows what happens when I open a pdf file and appears a strange typeface instead a system one?

Thanks in advance!

Can you post the URL where we can view the PDF file?

But, the pdf file in another mac displays correctly!
The problem happens with several files im my computer! Another example is when I open a firefox window... The text is setted in that strange typeface!

your font cache may be corrupted.

Try downloading MainMenu and scrubbing the font caches
