We are trying to create a PDF using Open Sans font. It looks like it's only visible on a computer with that font installed.

Is it possible to embed that Open Sans font?

Thanks

Open Sans is a font family distributed as part of the Google font library. The fonts are keyed to allow embedding within PDF files. Thus, if you specify the appropriate PDF creation options (i.e., embed all fonts), then members of the Open Sans used in your source document should embed with no problems in your resultant PDF files.

Thanks Dov. I am seeing Open Sans font in most fields on the Adobe acrobat pro DC doc sent to me, but it is not available in the font menu while I am editing the doc, so that creates an annoying inconsistency in the fonts. So how do I install Open Sans font onto a Macbook Air that is running the latest Mac OS Monterey 12.5 ? Sorry I am not tech-inclined. Please help, thanks!!
