hello
i have this document that i am trying to edit in acrobat.
in this document, i can type any character i want and the character will show up, however, when i type the character 8, it does not show me the character. just a blank space appears.
if i copy this blank space and paste it into another document, the character 8 will appear.
it means that the character is there but is not visible.
i tried changing the color of the font, but didnt work.

i am really confused. i tried this from another computer but still nothing.

help please

Are you using the Touchup Text tool for this, or are you typing into a form field?

In both cases, the font you are using does not seem to contain a glyph for the character '8'. How did you create this document?

What happens if you select a different font for the text you are typing?

i was using tahoma,
switching to verdana solved the problem and yes it was a touch text tool.
