I purchased an Open Type Font which is supposed to be embeddable (I checked the font settings in Control Panel > Fonts : it shows as "Editable"). I am using Microsoft Word 2016 and I have Adobe Acrobat installed, so I used "Export as Adobe PDF." However the OTF font was not embedded and text using it turned into gibberish.
While that article wasn't clear in its recommendations, I tried reinstalling the font in one of the folders it mentions (/Users/[username]/Library/Fonts) and that seems to have worked as now the font is embedded. Is that the recommended solution for getting Adobe OTF fonts to embed from Word, or did I accidentally discover a hack that won't work in the future?
ETA: That seemed to be a fluke. Now it is not embedding again. I don't know how I got it to embed the first time.
