Hi i have a pdf i created a while back that i need to slightly modify... i get the error message "all or part of the selection has no available system font. You cannot add or delete...". When i try to change the font using the touchUp text tool properties font dropdown i get the error "The change to a different font was not done because the chosen font and the font encodings in the document differ and could not be resolved". Weird thing is i am pretty sure the font use to create this pdf was Arial but in the dropdown the name of the current font shows up as "TTFF5E4710T00". Anybody know how i can go about solving this problem..
The font may not have been embedded. You might try to use the touchup text tool to highlight the text, go to the properties, and change the font. Embedding is an important part of creating good PDFs (at least my opinion).

So somewhere along the line, the font is getting changed to a different form. You might print to file with the Adobe PDF printer and look through the resultant PS file (may have PRN extension) to see what the font encodings are to be.
There is no good solution within Acrobat Pro itself. However, you CAN do the edit if you also have Adobe Illustrator installed.
Open your PDF document in Acrobat Pro. Instead of using TouchUp Text Tool, use the TouchUp Object Tool. Select the line of text you wish to alter, right click and choose Edit Object.
Your line of text should open up in Illustrator. Illustrator will use a substitute font, letting you edit at will. NOTE: you will NOT be able to save your change in the original font. Good news is that Illustrator has a large number of fonts to choose from and you will most likely find one that is very close to the original - good enough for quick edit purposes.
Save your change and exit Illustrator. Your change should be reflected by Adobe Acrobat Pro. Another benefit is that your changed text is now TouchUp Text editable from within Acrobat Pro.
