Century gothic displays in adobe reader 8 and not in 9

Feb 10, 2012 1:56 AM



I have created a pdf using adobe livecycle and i have set the address font in my header to Century Gothic. When i view the doc in Adobe reader 8, it shows it exactly the way i want. When i view it in adobe 9, it has changed to arial. Why is this happening? and how can i prevent it from changing when viewed in the different versions of adobe reader?


Also, it doesnt make sense to say that the font is supported in adobe 8 and NOT in 9. Surely capability should be backward compatible?

    Hi Fatima,


    I have Adobe Reader 9.5 and I am not able to see any issue with PDF files having Century Gothic font and it displays fine.

    I want to know that which version of Adobe Reader is installed on your machine where you are facing the problem.

    If possible, please share the file.

    Hi Fatima,


    I am not able to see the problem even with Adobe Reader 9.0. I created a PDF in Livecycle using both fonts "Century Gothic and Arial, my PDF is being displayed as expected in Adobe Reader 9.0.


    It will be really helpful if you can share the file.
