How To Embed Fonts in Adobe Acrobat Professional 8


Fonts change the way words look and can effect spacing and page length. When you use a specific font for an Adobe Acrobat PDF file, you want everyone who opens and uses that document to see it the way you intended, fonts and all. If the person opening the PDF doesn't have the same font set as you, their computer will compensate with a different font and the document will look different. The best way to prevent this is by embedding the font directly in the document. This saves the font along with the PDF, so any computer can open and display it correctly.

  • Click "Tools" on the menu bar which is fourth from the right. Select the "TouchUp Text Tool" from the drop-down menu.

  • Select the text that has the font you want to embed. If the font is only used in one paragraph, select that paragraph by clicking and dragging your cursor over the paragraph. If it used in the entire document, go to the menu bar, select "Edit," and click "Select All."

  • Right-click, or control-click on Mac, on the selected text. Click "Properties" from the menu that appears.

  • Select "Text" on the menu bar at the top of the window that pops up. The font should be displayed and on the right there should be two check boxes: Embed and Subset. Click the "Embed" box. The font is now embedded.
