I've read through every forum post I can find, all that the almighty Google Gods have to offer, and have spent an hour of wasted time chatting with Adobe Support in regards to text rendering problems I'm experiencing with PS6. While I've seen MANY problems discussed, I haven't seen my exact problem discussed, so here's praying that I'm missing some completely obvious setting somewhere...

Text and colors are showing up beautifully when working in PS6, but when I render, seems like no matter what I do, the text goes haywire. I lose coloring and style upon render, but only on certain lines. It seems to select which bits of text to render correctly and which to spite in a completely arbitrary fashion. Here's what I'm looking at:

All of my text is set to 100% opacity. I'm on Windows 7, just upgraded to CS6. I've tried moving all of the text layers as the absolute top layers of the document. I've tried saving as pdf with the color settings "Blend Text Colors Using Gamma" checkbox both checked (as it was defaulted) and unchecked.

No dice. Same result. Is there some magic settings formula that I'm missing? These are some of the first documents I've created with PS6 and prior to troubleshooting this issue, I've used all default settings.

Halp! Please.
