I have Adobe Pro X and I am having issues with printing. When I print a pdf document, sometimes the text is replaced by squares. I have determined that this is caused by certain font. I know for a fact that the pre set font used in "add text box" is one of those fonts. I have read that you can embed fonts and that will solve the problem of the squares.
This image is of a sample of the issue. I have to take product documentation for manufacturers and provide these to clients for approval. So, this issue is not directed at just one manufacturer provided pdf. The squares also appear in the text box at the top.
1. How do you change the pre set font in the "add text box"?
2. How do you determine the font of a pdf document?
3. What is the step by step process to embedd a particular font?
When you use the "Add text box" (also known as the Typewriter tool), you're actually placing an annotation on the PDF. You can see this if you open the Comments pane and view the Comments List. You can change the font for the annotation by using the Selection tool and then double-clicking on the text. This will bring up the Typewriter tool properties where you can see what font is being used and change it if necessary. In your case, you don't need to embed the font because you're working within an annotation. What you'll need to do instead is to flatten the annotation so that it becomes part of the page content and no longer editable as an annotation. To flatten an annotation you can use the Preflight tool (which is only part of Acrobat Pro. When you open the Preflight tool, twirl open the PDF fixups arrow and select "Flatten annotation and form fields".
