PDF fonts management

Do font files that were used on my PDF files need to be uploaded?

No, but you will be asked to match or replace fonts before accessing the editor. If you have the original font files, you can upload them during the import process.

Alternatively, you can choose a replacement from our royalty-free Google font collection. This may cause some variances in the appearance of textual elements, but it will allow you to edit the text freely.

We currently support TTF (TrueType) font format. The OTF (OpenType) will be added soon.  Adobe Typekit files are not supported.


Why fonts need to be uploaded or replaced

When a PDF file is generated, fonts are stripped of the letters and symbols that were not used. When you replace or upload fonts, you can edit the text without limitation.


How do I know what fonts are being used in a PDF file?

Using a PDF Reader, inspect the document properties to see what fonts are used. If you’re using Adobe Acrobat to read PDF files, choose File > Properties and click on the Fonts tab to see a list of the fonts used in the document.
