Fonts and converting from Word

Fonts and converting from Word

I have been using Times New Roman and Arial and am

planning to convert Word documents to PDFs. What are he best fonts to use?

–Shari Reeder


If you have the font, either TrueType or PS installed,

then as long as you embed the font in the PDF file, you shouldn’t have a

problem. Times and Arial are installed on most systems and, therefore, if you’re

concerned about someone with the full version being able to edit your documents,

those fonts are fine. –Edward Becker
