How to Embed Fonts With OpenOffice


Every operating system comes with a number of fonts already installed and ready for you to use. You can increase the number of fonts you have by downloading and installing new ones off the Internet. Once the new ones are installed, you'll be able to use them when you create a document. However, if you send those documents to another computer, and that computer doesn't have the font installed, it won't be able to read the document. The solution to this problem is to use OpenOffice's "embed fonts" option, which will package the fonts you used with the document -- meaning any computer will be able to open it.

  • Double-click the "OpenOffice" icon to open the start-up screen. Select the type of document you want to embed fonts into -- either a text document, spreadsheet, presentation or database.

  • Open the document you want to embed fonts into.

  • Click "File."

  • Select "Export as PDF" from the menu that appears. This will open the PDF dialog box.

  • Select the "General" tab. Look for the check box next to "Embed Standard Fonts" and check it off by clicking on the box. Click "Export."

  • Name your document and select where you want to save it, then click "Save." Your document will be saved with all the associated fonts embedded.
