Matching Avenir Fonts In Adobe Arobat DC

How do I find fonts in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro that matches Avenir Black, Book and Medium fonts? I have read that this version of Acrobat is suppose to match fonts the best it can but it wanted to use Minion Pro which is not even close.

I've tried to Google an answer and some of the substitutes that I found in my search would work just fine but they are not in my list of available fonts in Acrobat either.

I looked up the font and it appears to be an expensive but ordinary looking Sans Serif font. What about using a simpler Sans Serif font that Adobe supports?  I know I am a  Neanderthal but I am using Word 2013 and Adobe V2015, I use standard fonts and it works well.

Hello John,

I have to edit a PDF that uses this font, it is not one that I would have picked out for my own use. While you provided a solution (just use a Sans Serif font that Adobe supports) I was looking for suggestions on how to use Acrobat or its supporting tools to find matching fonts, in this case Avenir Black, Book and Medium fonts, for those cases where you need to find a font that you can use to edit an existing PDF.

It does appear you can purchase Avenir for Adobe. You may wish to try this.

No, I agree it is an expensive font and I just need to come close to it for what I need to do. Working from you suggestion I tried Calibri and it is close. I just can't adjust the font height like I need to - it seems that you can only use the presets in this version of Acrobat - I don't have the ability to fine-tune the height by just typing it in.

There are those people who can just look at a font and tell what family it is in (you might be one of those) but that is not one of my talents. I was hoping there was a tool within Acrobat or an Adobe website that would provide font substitutes.

I'm going to allow just a little more time for a solution more like I described before I award the points.

You might try Century Gothic (Word 2013)

Beyond that, I cannot help.
