Acrobat for Life Sciences, a blog that covers the use of Acrobat for those involved in the pharmaceutical, research and medical device markets, has published some tips on how to re-embed fonts in a PDF using Adobe Acrobat 9.

The FDA and other regulatory agencies have specific requirements regarding fonts used in drug applications. Notably, fonts need to be embedded for compliance

Ensuring that fonts are embedded properly is not particularly difficult if documents are in your control.

    I have Acrobat 9.3 and when I send PDFs to some people, the fonts are changed or missing. This is when I create a PDF on my own from a document or a web page or email.

    I wish to embed them.

    To do this, I have read I am to re-distill the document.

    In the Acrobat menu, I was told to go here:

    Advanced/print production/acrobat distiller/settings/Job Options.

    I do not have “job Options” available.

    I only have:

    Font locations
    Watched folders
    Edit Adobe PDF settings
    Add Adobe PDF settings
    Remove Adobe PDF settings

    Choosing Edit or Add Settings above has always shown me that font embedding is already checked on.

    What else am I to do?
