Text Editing: Can not change from custom to local font. When I attempt, I get the following message. "To change to a different font was not done because the chosen font and the font encoding in the document differ and could not be resolved".
When you highlight text in your pdf and you get the font-related error message, I think it tells you which font your document is in, yes? If not, you should be able to right-click, go to properties and it will tell you there. Likely that font is not on your computer. Download that font to your computer (try here: http://www.ufonts.com) and try your pdf editing agagin. Note: It will download into a folder on your c-drive probably (on mine it was a newly created one called "ufonts). I had to drag that font into the computer's font folder (located on the control panel) - then Adobe recognized it. (Side note: In this day & age, such problems are ridiculous and a waste of time for the user to have to struggle with. I am evaluating Adobe Pro x10. When I called support, they refused to help, saying no support unless I've purchased. I thus had to take the time to figure this out on my own. Really bad demonstrations of: (a) user experience design; and (b) customer service).
I'm trying to change the fonts, size, etc., on a PDF I created on my computer with QuarkXpress. The fonts were embedded as a subset when I created the PDF for press printing. I have No Security set up in Preferences. I can change size, color, letter and word spacing, baseline offset, horizontal scaling, stroke width and color... but I can't change the font itself to another one on my computer. Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be changed?
This is the message I get: 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. What does that mean?
I found a workaround through Ask.com:
It is a work around to draw a rectangle (tools, drawingMarkups, textbox tool) and put your text in it. I even copied the text from the original place, pasted it in the rectangle, and the closest font with lay-out (bold, italic) was found. This text I could easely edit, and I deleted the original textbox with the touchup object tool
