Embed fonts using the Edit Document Text tool

Embedding fonts ensures that your PDF uses the same fonts as the original document, no matter where you open the PDF or what fonts are installed on that system.

  1. Choose Tools > Content > Edit Document Text.
  2. Click the text containing the font embedding or subsetting to edit. A paragraph of text is enclosed in a bounding box. You can select text within the paragraph by dragging.
  3. Right-click the text, and choose Properties.
  4. In the TouchUp Properties dialog box, click the Text tab to display the font name and font properties as well as embedding and subset capabilities.
  5. To see a list of all the fonts, scroll through the Font menu. Document fonts are listed first. Your system fonts are listed below the document fonts.
  6. Choose a font from the Font menu, check the permissions to determine which options are available for that font, and then select an embedding option. The permissions determine which embedding options are available:
    Can Embed Font
    You can select both the Embed and Subset options. To embed the entire font rather than a subset, make sure that Subset is not selected.

    Can Embed Font For Print And Preview Only
    You can only subset-embed the font. You can embed the font for print and preview but not for editing.

    Cannot Embed Font
    Both the Embed and Subset options are unavailable.

    No System Font Available
    Both the Embed and Subset options are unavailable.

Note: Editing and saving a digitally signed PDF invalidates the signature.
