How to Repair Missing Fonts in an Adobe PDF


Missing fonts in your Adobe PDF file results in an inaccurate display of the file, as the PDF requires specific fonts to correctly present the document as it was originally created. If the PDF continues to display the error message after embedding the font, recreate the Adobe font list in your Adobe program to fix the problem and eliminate the error. A recreation of your Adobe font list rebuilds the list of available fonts on your computer and links to the program to provide the missing fonts.

  • Close all Adobe programs that are currently open on your computer. Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of the desktop, and click "Search."

  • Click "For Files or Folders" and type "Adobefnt*.list" including the quotation marks in the search field. Press "Enter" on your keyboard to start the file search.

  • Click all of the located files in the search list. Click "File" at the top of the window, and click "Delete." Click "Yes" to confirm you wish to send the items to the Recycle Bin.

  • Click the Start menu icon on the desktop, click "All Programs" and Click "Adobe InDesign" or "Adobe InCopy" to restart the Adobe application. The program's font list rebuilds during the program startup.
