Exporting to PDf reduces font size of the text (Crystal Reports XI Release 2

Crystal Reports reduces the size of document' text after exporting it to PDF. I used the solution provided which consists of creating 'ForceLargerFonts' in the locations below

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\10.5\Crystal Reports\Export\PDF

And

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\10.5\Crystal Reports\Export\PDF

However, the problem is fixed on my local computer. the browser pdf visualizer still shrinking the text. Any other suggestion?
