Converting PDF fonts from Mac to Windows

Recommended Posts

I had a PDF sent to me from a fellow artist, but there is one problem;  she had created the PDF in her MAC computer,  so as a result the fonts in the PDF does not match the fonts in my Windows computer.  I could search for fonts to match the fonts in the PDF, but it would be tedious.  Is there a way for me to convert PDF fonts so they match the Window fonts?  Possible?    Thank you.

This should be no problem, if both computers use the same fonts. (Not TrueType in one and OTF on the other; not different font versions, …)

Since in most cases fonts are not system specific, make sure, that the exact same fonts are installed on both machines.

Um. I'm not sure, since the artist who sent me the PDF from her Mac computer used several fonts that has different names from the Window fonts. For instance, from Mac,  "Boulevard", "Broken Glass," and 'ColorsofAutumn".....each time the Publisher suggested Font Family Replacement as "Arial".   I just want the font to match the fonts the artist was using.   :7_sweat_smile:
