I'm using Windows 10 and have added a few fonts for a project. However, even thought they are in C:\Windows\Fonts, they don't show up in Acrobat.

Is there a way to refesh the list in Acrobat and make it update it view of the Fonts folder?

TIA

Hi Tanuk,

 

Having fonts in your OS is not as important as having the fonts in the document you are working on. 

 

If your document is composed of (say) Times), just because you have Bauhaus 93 on your computer will not make it show up in the document in Acrobat. However, IF you have Bauhaus 93 in the original document, than you will have access to it in that document in Acrobat. 

 

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks, Gary!

 

But the fonts are in the document and show up fine in the PDF, but a lot of other fonts (not in the Word document) are embedded. When I tried to tell Acrobat to only embed the files I'm using, Acrobat DC doesn't show the new fonts I've installed to c:\Windows\Fonts and am using in my document.

 

My thought was to only embed the fonts in use, but as they don't show up in c:\Windows\Fonts in the Acrobat DC interface to let me do that.

 

Best,

Dave

Hi Dave,

 

Ha! You didn't say that before!! 8>)

 

Please keep in mind that Acrobat can embed only Type 1 and TTF fonts. So my next question is: are the fonts you're having issues with either of those types?
