Adobe? You mean acroread? No way it can be the default, as it is no
longer distributed. Adobe no longer supports Linux.

Why? What do you use?

They may not support it but that doesn't stop me running it :-)

The reason I ask this is that this odd formatting is recent and I wonder
if it is to do with the way adobe invokes ghostscript to hand off to

Summary: Adobe Reader for PDF Files
Acroread is a well known PDF viewer.

Adobe Reader is often the only program able to process complicated PDF
files, such as PDF forms. However, there are many bugs where we cannot
do anything about because it is proprietary binary-only software.

Please consider whether it is possible to use free PDF readers like
okular, evince, xpdf, ghostview, ... instead.
