    There are many versions of Verdana Acrobat doesn't treat them all the same. Nevertheless you should be able to print and view the file using Adobe's font substitution technology. Since that is not working here, I'd suspect that either the font embedded into the pdf is corrupt or the file itself is corrupt. You can see if you can print the file using the print as image checkbox.

    I'm not sure if that would help but turn on "Use local fonts" in Preferences>Page DisplayPicture 1.png

    OK.

     

    If it's nothing confidential, you could give us a link to the pdf for us to see if we have the same problem.

    Just for the record, I got the same error message on my desktop Mac.

     

    I opened the pdf in Illustrator and the Verdana font showed fine. Everything was there. I re-saved the Illustrator file as a pdf and that pdf was readable.
