I am trying to edit a PDF with Acrobat 8.0 Professional and I get the following error message when I try to edit using the Touch Up Text tool:

"All or part of the selection has not available system font.  You cannot add or delete or delete the text using the currently selected font"

When I right-click on the text and select 'Properties' to find out what font is required it says the font is the original and editing for are "T1" and 14pt. but no other information is given.  

How do I determine exactly which font I need?
