PSD to PDF multiline/paragraph text layer text problem

When I save a psd file with text layers as a pdf that have multiple lines of text the layers with multiple lines of text have text missing/only outlined. A paragraph of text will have the first few lines outlined then a few lines are fine then the last few lines will be missing/outlined. I have tried every pdf setting when saving from photoshop but the only quick fix/work around is to flatten or rasterise the multilined text layer/s. Single line text layers are fine it is just paragraph text layers.

If I create a new file with Illustrator and save as pdf the multilined/paragraph text layers are fine. It is only when I save as PDF from photoshop without merging/flattening/rasterising the text layers with paragraphs of text.

I have tried every changing every setting and I am not using third party fonts I am actually only using Arial font.

I was even told by Pritam an Adobe online help person to file this problem here.
So I hope someone with the ability to fix this problem reads this and fixes it as soon as possible.

Howdy FooWing,

I'm not seeing this. Are you able to get it with all files? Could you share any of those files with me. I have helped other users the last couple days with PDF problems, but most of those seemed to be related to missing files. Any chance that's a factor here?
