Editing a document in Adobe Acrobat XI – The font changes


Question

I am trying to edit an existing Adobe Acrobat document.

The document uses one font, but when I write text in, the text is written in mono or some nonsense.

The document tells me the font the existing text is in, but doesn't let me select the font for use - is there something I'm missing?

You should have that font installed on your system if you want to make changes in an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. Otherwise it will use another default system font on whatever text you'll try to change.

If you open the "Content Editing" tools, you should have access to other fonts at least and change it. Your only other option is to have the exact same font version as the one in the PDF installed on your system!

It's possible the font you have has the same name as the one in Acrobat but there's many versions of fonts and Acrobat might not recognize yours as being the same. That doesn't stop you from changing some parts manually to your font if it works.

You should be able to select a new font.
