This is a weird problem that I've run into the last couple of weeks. 
I'm using the latest update of Photoshop CC on Windows 7.

It seems to only affect larger files.
PSD files are 300dpi, CMYK color; one 32inx32in, the other 24inx36in 
Exporting as PDFS with default High Quality Print settings without layers. The only possible solution I've been able to find is to save for the most recent version of Acrobat, but this doesn't affect the errors. The only thing I've been able to do to get rid of this issue to convert problem vectors to rasters.

This file contains vectors with strokes and other text, but this is the only issue, weird clipping on the registered icon that's on a separate text layer.

Hi Kira, would it be able to get the source PSDs and resulting PSDs to see if we can reproduce the problem?
