Characters overlap for CJK punctuation when creating pdf


When running the following code:

        var doc = new Document("Broken.docx");

The pdf has no spacing around the Japanese punction mark ‘。’.
In fact, the characters overlap each other.

Please see the attached documents:

Turning the following option off on the style stops the issue from appearing:

This is not expected behaviour though as saving the file as Pdf from word does not cause the characters to overlap.
