This will not help. Acrobat Reader doesn't create the PDF file. Your scanner software creates the PDF file.

It is not the problem of Adobe. When you install the required font pack you can open the file.

Some scanners use special fonts. There is no problem at all with Acrobat Reader. It sees that the PDF uses special fonts, and tells the user how to get them. Everything is working as designed.

Maybe use a different scanner. It's the scanner software doing this. Are you actually using any paid-for Adobe software to make this file?

Then Epson (the Epson support you spoke to) are wrong. This has been repeatedly discussed for many years. You can try updating their scanner software to see if Epson fixed it.

Epson development don't see a problem because they are in Japan, and everyone already has the required fonts. This is probably why it is hard to communicate the problem to them. But it is real.


We've told you the two ways to solve this. If you don't like either solution, I don't have any more.
