How to Change Fonts in Adobe Acrobat

Two methods can be used to change fonts in Adobe Acrobat. I’ll explain both methods in the following paragraphs. The first method is changing to the default font, and the second method is changing the document font. 

Step 1 

Start by opening up your PDF document. Next, move to edit mode and follow Preferences > Content Editing > Font Options.

Step 2 

The next step is changing the default fallback font to edit the text.  Start by selecting the Font Option and wait for the drop-down list after selecting the Font Option.

Find the appropriate font by browsing the editing options under the Fallback font. Remember that you must choose whether to accept the modifications or keep modifying the settings.

Step 3 

The next step is to choose the default font properties for add text. If you have added a text and wish to make it visible, click on the Default font for Add Text in the drop-down list. A decent selection of font styles and sizes is available in the drop-down list. You should go ahead to confirm your modifications by clicking the OK button. 

Method 2

Thankfully, Acrobat comes with a wide range of tools that can manipulate a document’s contents. You can use the standard version of Acrobat to change the fonts of a document, or you can use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Follow the steps below to change the document font using Acrobat. 

Step 1 

Start by opening up your document and choosing your edit options. The Edit PDF can be found on the right sidebar. Click on it to move to edit mode. 

Step 2 

The next step is to select the part of the text. First, select the text you want to edit and specify the desired parameters for your font. The parameters can include size, type, color, etc. 

Step 3 

For the third step, you need to save the PDF. To save the changes, select Save File. That’s it! If you’ve read this far, you know two ways to change the font in Adobe Acrobat. You can choose any method that you want.

Does Adobe Acrobat Allow Users Import Fonts? 

Adobe Acrobat is a document reader app, so fonts cannot be imported into it. The fonts are included in the PDF file; they are not a software component. You should note that fonts are not included in any edition, not even the Pro version, which has more robust editing features. When we discuss including fonts in Adobe Acrobat, you are adding fonts to your System folder’s Fonts folder rather than importing them into the application itself.
