Hi

when you say "but shows up as a different font " what do you mean?

Using the Create PDF out of Word or the Print to Adobe PDF both here with this font displays everything correctly.

Can you take a screen grab of what you see for both, Word and PDF?

It's not showing up as Arial Unicode MS  but instead as Calibri.

In your other question, you allude to the fact that you add text in Acrobat and it shows up as Calibri...

When  you say, "Add text" do you use the TouchUp Text tool?

Are you adding text via a form field? That is the only instance where Acrobat is referring to text as a "text field", otherwise it's either the touchup tool, or a text box, or the typewriter tool. How do you access the tool? Different tools have different sets of fonts they support.

Have you tried plain old Arial instead of Arial Unicode MS? Does Arial get converted to Calibri too?

I suspect he is editing in a text field in a document that has an Arial main font. There are no restriction on Arial MS so any substitution because of rights issues does not apply for Arial MS.

So if the Text field properties are set to Calibri, maybe the confusion arises from there.

vbnetcoder,  do you use the Form tool to add fields or does the document have these fields already? In either case, go to menu Forms>Add or edit fields. When the interface changes and shows you the text fields, right click on one, go to Properties and check the font settings on the General tab. If it is set to Calibri, change to Arial MS and see if your problem is gone once you close form editor.

If so then repeat on all affected fields.
