Enfocus has launched PitStop FontFix, the new Adobe Acrobat Pro and Standard plug-in that checks and replaces fonts missing from PDF files. PDF is an extremely popular file format used by a wide range of markets worldwide, including graphic arts, government, corporate, office, financial and medical.
To celebrate the release, Enfocus is making the Font Fix solution available to customers for free. To get their copy, customers simply share their thoughts on social media.
As PDF files have grown in popularity, so has the problem of missing fonts. Users in all of these markets experience the challenge that comes from managing a PDF file that is missing correct fonts.
PitStop Font Fix is the result of an agreement between Enfocus, the leading software developer of tools to control the quality of PDF files, and Monotype, a leading global provider of typefaces, technology and expertise. With the new PitStop Font Fix plug-in, users can check their PDFs for missing fonts and make simple corrections. If fonts are missing, users can simply embed them from fonts available on their computer system, or by downloading them from Monotype Baseline™, a cloud-based font library.
Here’s how it works:
• Visit the Enfocus PitStop Font Fix link (www.enfocus.com/en/products/pitstop-font-fix) and click the ‘Get It Now’ button.
• Write a personal message or use Enfocus’ suggested post: ‘I fixed fonts in my PDF file with PitStop Font Fix!’ Then share the update on social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+, xing en vkontakte).
• Download and install the plugin (Macintosh and Windows) into Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe Acrobat Standard.
Once users have installed the plug-in and registered for a free Monotype Baseline account, they can embed as many local system fonts as they want. By creating an account on the Monotype Baseline platform, users get access to a massive font library. This Monotype library holds over 60000 fonts of various types, including Adobe Type 1 fonts.
