The Adobe Acrobat app does not display my fonts correctly. Arial and times new roman fonts, which are standard fonts that should have no problem displaying, is being replaced by the app with unknown fonts.

All the fonts in the document are either Arial or Times New Roman and Acrobat seems to have replaced them.

Some photos for comparison

Hi,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

As far as I have tried, it seems to be an issue with any file saved on Microsoft Word > PDF, the docx file were created on differnet PCs using Word and saved as a pdf. I do not know if the fonts are embedded. 

The issue does not persist if I create a document on other programs such as Google Docs and save it as a PDF, the fonts will display correctly.

When opening the files on a PC version of Acrobat, no issues as well. Issue only exists on Android app version.

Application version 18.4.1, files are saved in device internal storage.


The files I used in my screenshots are here: Shared Files - Acrobat.com
