Are the characters in a table and you're using update 2? This is a known bug. You have to right-click the table and turn it into an image, then delete the table and insert the image. Supposedly this is fixed in update 3, but since update 3 crashes every time I click any button on the Articulate ribbon, I can't confirm that it's fixed.
