Hi

 

I have pdf-files created with an application where you can fill in which font to use. 

I have read online and understnad that fonts can be embedded or not embedded and if they are not embedded they will be shown correctly if the fonts are installed on the computer. 

 

In my PDF if I go to properties->Fonts I have this info: 

Helvetica-Bold

 Type: Type 1

 Encoding: Ansi

 Actual Font:Arial-BoldMT

 Actual Font Type: TrueType

 

Verdana

 Type:TrueType

 Encoding:Ansi

 Actual Font: Adobe Sans MM

 Actual Font Type: Type 1

 

Verdana-Bold,Bold

 Type: TrueType

 Encoding: Ansi

 Actual Font: Adobe Sans MM

 Actual Font Type: Type 1

 

If i look in windows i find C:\Windows\Fonts\verdanab.ttf and C:\Windows\Fonts\verdana.ttf

So why is this not showing in adobe reader? 

 

I'm trying to understand how to correct so that these fonsts are shown correctly

It sounds as if you have done all the right things, but here is one more check: are you able to use Verdana (/Bold) in Word?
