Embedding Fonts in PDFs

  • Open your document in Microsoft Word
  • Choose File > Print
  • Choose Adobe PDF as your printer
  • Click on Printer Properties
  • In the Default Settings choose PDF/X-1a:2001. This setting will automatically embed all of your fonts and is the recommended settings for the majority of printers.
  • You will also want to set the Page Size drop down the the size of your book set in Microsoft Word. If your page size does not show in the drop down menu click on Add then add your book's page size as an option.
