Hello everyone,

 

I´m building an interactive texfield which will contain several words and phrases which display will be triggered by the user´s command.

 

My concern is that I don´t know which of the default fonts the users have in their computer. I´m using Helvetica Bold in this project.

 

Are there any fonts that are considered the "safest" and should always be used, so that users can always read the PDFfiles?

 

Thanks a lot for your reply!

You don't need to worry about that at all. Any font you select will be fully embedded in the PDF. The users don't need to have that font installed on their machine. If you use Helvetica then it's even better, as that font comes as a part of Acrobat (or Reader) itself.
