Embed Font Controls

PDF Create lets you include fonts inside PDF documents. Font embedding slows down PDF creation and increases the file size, while ensuring that the document layout and appearance are preserved, regardless of the fonts that exist on a reader’s computer. Set your preference for font embedding:

  • Embed Non-Standard Fonts (default)

  • Embed All Fonts

  • Do Not Embed Fonts

The default setting embeds all except the most common fonts that typically exist on most computers: Arial, Times New Roman, Courier, and Symbol.

Click Advanced to view the settings for each standard control. To specify more precise settings for a custom control, click New, name a new control, update the settings and click OK.

To specify a list of fonts to always embed, clear Embed All Used Fonts, and then select Always Embed Fonts. Select the desired fonts individually and use the right-facing arrow to place them in the Always Embed Fonts panel.

To activate the arrow buttons, select the applicable check box and select a font. Click an arrow button to change its direction to add or remove fonts from the lists.

To embed all fonts except those that you specify, select Embed All Used Fonts, and then select Never Embed Fonts; add or remove until the desired fonts are listed, and click OK.

Note Font files include a flag to allow or prohibit embedding, and PDF Create respects the flag setting.

Use Delete to delete a control. Use Default to restore supplied controls to default values and remove user-defined controls.
