I work at a company that is using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, and I download PDF's and combine them and will add text. Lately when I send it to the next person when they open it up (I don't think they have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, I believe they just have Adobe Reader) the letters and numbers I added at random will turn into Square's with X's in the middle. Online everywhere it says to set it up so that the Font will imbed, but I can't find any updated information on how to do that in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and my IT says I just need to change the font.

If you are combining documents, you are very likely running into this problem:

I wrote this more than five years ago, and I have not tested the workaround with a recent version of Acrobat, but all the funcgtionality should still be there.
