I want to edit a PDF text in Acrobat but the font is not editable. I tried to follow this instruction:

 

To embed the font please try the following steps and check.

  • Go to Tools > Print Production >  Preflight select the “PDF fixups” option and select “Embed missing fonts” and click the “Analyze and fix” button to embed any unembedded fonts.
  • After clicking Analyze and fix, you will be asked to save your new PDF document. Save it with the name and location you like. It will then automatically reopen in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
  • To be sure that this process has worked, right-click anywhere on the document and select Document
    Properties. You should now see the Document Properties Click on the Fonts tab. This menu should display (Embedded Subset or Embedded) after the name of each font. 

 

BUT, as shown in the picture, the option "embed missing fonts" does not appear.

 

How can I fix this issue so that I can edit my text with the same original font?

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs Please try with a different PDF file and check.

 

What is the version of the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 22.1.20169 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

 

Also, try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and see if that works.

 

Please try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

 

You may also try to create a new test user profile with full admin rights in Windows or enable the root account in Mac and try using the application there and check.

 

Regards

Amal
