How do you embed fonts in Keynote for a Mac?
How do you Fonts in Keynote for Mac? As far as I know you can. Though many macOS apps support font ding (InDesign PowerPoint etc) font ding isn supported in Keynote. If you do a bit of google searching youll find workarounds such as save your keynote presentation as a PDF or turn your slides into images and use them . But actually ding the fonts like you can (if the font has the appropriate licence) in Office under Windows? Nope sorry. Quite frankly the entire issue of font ding the various s of ding (read only editable installable) even under Windows is a bit of a mess anyhow. So perhaps not supporting the ding at all is actually a wise thing. More often than not when a client wants to buy a custom font for use in Microsoft Office the fontpanies or designers seem to be pretty clueless about Office focusing more on professional solutions such as InDesign etc. It usually takes a few tries to get the font right (sigh)
Can you embed fonts in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac?
Can you fonts in PowerPoint 216 for Mac? question qid 113396 As far as I know no. According to my experience font ding is a feature which is limited to Windows Word & PowerPoint only (Excel doesn do font ding in any case - it just allows the user to specify a font to be used but that font needs to be available on the ). And even then it only works correctly if the fonts have the correct ding rights. This is an issue clients and design agencies trip over again and again. But no Mac doesn seem to allow font ding into a file. Depending on what you are trying to do exactly a possible workaround could be to save your file directly from PowerPoint 216 for Mac as a PDF. But this is obviously no help if you need to send the presentation to someone else to edit. If you need to get the presentation to a client who doesn have the font youre using and he needs to add content then perhaps you can send them the presentation in the knowledge that itlle back with the wrong font. But then use the Reuse Slide(s) function (under New Slide) to take the content italic from the client presentation and magic it into the correct design (which includes the correct font) on your machine. I know it a pain but the whole topic of custom fonts and dability is prettyplex and even the fontpanies struggle to get it right (because they are typically more focused on Adobe InDesign etc. and not on us poor Office-using mortals). Hope this helps a little.
Which type foundries permit embedding of fonts in applications in their standard EULA?
It is not their standard EULA but FontFont s new App+ license is suitable for all uses beyond print or web (this includes apps editable docs and hardware). OurType just tweeted s OurType basic license = 5 users + 1 website + 1 app (Andr + iOS + ...) + editable ding allowed for PDF + ePub. This is likely the most generous basic license among professional foundries. Matthew Butterick of MB Type emailed me to say he allows any of read-only ding with my standard license. Web ebook app PDF. Update (Oct 213) More and more foundries now offer app licenses some with terms published right on their website. For more see What foundries offer good faces for reading long-form on screen and have licenses that allow for ding in apps and self-hosted web use? question qid 1378398 and Why does MyFonts charge so much to a font in an iOS Android or Windows app? question qid 141436
How do you embed fonts in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?
Open the Preflight panel (search for it in the tools) switch to Fixups (Wrench icon on the Profiles tab) fonts in the search field. Use the found Embed Fonts italic fixup as is or in conjunction with a Subset Fonts italic fixup to minimise the document size. BTW if youre looking for an answer in order to make your document fully editable there a caveat Acrobat Pro will only let you edit that PDF if all fonts are physically present and installed on the destination system. For legal reasons not technical. So fully ding a font will not necessarily result in using that font being editable in that font in Acrobat. This is Acrobat-specific unlike e.g. PitStop Pro as other software vendors like Enfocus haven been legally burned in relevant scenarios by font foundries (yet;-)
Microsoft Office: Is there any acceptable way to convert a Word document to a PDF?
Word pretends to be able to do fancy layouts but if youre creating stuff for publication then it always better to use some other software (I spent a lot of time tweaking the graphics on research papers to get them through academic publisher requirements). I found one way was to import the document into MS Publisher which will allow you to go up to 11 dpi then set the resolution for each graphic element. But that doesn always work and Publisher is (deservedly) not installed by many nowadays as being mostly useless. Never had problems with the Adobe Acrobat - Word plugin unless something had been done (filter shadow etc) to the vector object in Word and then the effect and the vector is rasterised. Transparency is always a bit hit-and-miss but I found that creating a backboard made things better (large rectangle the size of the page with the fill and surrounds in white and sent to the bottom of all the pages objects). Or using Inkscape I would re-check each vector item just to make sure that it was still a vector save them as eps files then use Publisher for layout. Basically it all a faff and you finally realise there a reason for Adobe Illustrator - it creates perfect PDF.
What foundries offer good typefaces for reading long-form text on screen and have licenses that allow for embedding in apps and self-hosted web use?
Many foundries offer app licenses and self-hosted webfonts if you contact them directly. For simplicity's sake you could start with FontFont who offers an annual App+ license s or MyFonts who have web or app licenses %3A+tag%3A that you can just add to the cart. Font Bureau also offers transparent pricing for mobile app licensing. It not a cart option so you still have to contact them but the prices are all there. Mono recently issued a set of eText font families designed specifically for on-screen . OurType offers what is likely the most generous basic license among professional foundries OurType basic license = 5 users + 1 website + 1 app (Andr + iOS + ...) + editable ding allowed for PDF + ePub. Matthew Butterick of MB Type allows any of read-only ding with my standard license. Web ebook app PDF. Beyond that nearly everyone among my favorite font sources offers an app license. But as I said you gotta email them for a quote. (Most of them also allow you to self-host their webfonts but you may need to contact them if their standard webfont option is part of a service.) So fortunately the app-dable font choices are now very broad. It would require some more probing questions and surveying into your particular project to narrow down the options but you can get a sense of what works well in that environment by checking the face options in reader apps like Instapaper .
