eDrawings Publisher: Century Gothic font does not translate--any ideas?

I've noticed that in SW2015 (and possibly earlier releases) that when I create an eDrawing from a solidWorks drawing, the default Century Gothic font does not translate.  It appears that the edrawing instead substitutes or reproduces the text with some kind of a skewed Arial font, with the letters overlapping sometimes but not always.  This is separate from (but similar to) the issue of "Larger fonts" in control panel--I do not use that setting in Windows, so that isn't the cause.  I have viewed the edrawings on multiple computers and it always appears the same (flawed) way.  I do have century gothic as a properly functional font in MS office, but this apparently does not help edrawings to interpret correctly.  I tried changing the SW drawing to Arial, and that did translate okay, but this is not a solution because there are many years' worth of eDrawings for our shop to use, and I can't possibly change them all.

 

Anybody know how to fix this?
