CIDFont+F1 issue

I have received a PDF file as an attachment to an email and can open and view and print it from within the email but when I save the file to my computer and then try to open the file I get an error message saying that CIDFont+F1 cannot be created or found.  The file opens but the text is just displayed as a series of dots.

I have confirmed that I am using the most current version of Adobe Reader.

Any advice on what the problem might be and how to resolve would be appreciated.

That is an exporting problem. I mean some software or online programs when they export the PDFs they cant decode the font.

That is why you are getting that problem.

The font CIDFont+F1 is Arial (blod) and CIDFont+F2 is Arial (Regular)

Just in case, on the files I got with a similar issue F1 was mapped to Arial and F2 was Arial Bold.

Use "Times New Roman" family fonts in place of f1(times new roman regular), f2 (times new roman bold),

I have the same problem just now. Neither Arial or Times New Roman is the font as I can see in the preview...
