Embedding fonts in Indesign
By default, Indesign is supposed to embed fonts automatically. However, you can follow the following steps to make sure the fonts are embedded properly.
- Open the file in Indesign. Go to File --> Export. In the "Save as type" field, select "Adobe PDF", type the file name, and click on Save.
- From the "Adobe PDF Preset" dropdown menu, choose the required preset. If you are sending the file for printing, choose "Press Quality".
- Go to "Advance", and set the percentage of the option "Subset fonts when percent of characters used is less than:" as required. This option will allow you either to subset fonts or to embed the whole fonts. If you put 0%, then Indesign will embed the entire font, otherwise, Indesign will embed certain characters of a font as soon as certain percentage of those characters is used.
- Make any other required changes to the files settings, then click Export.
