How to Embed Fonts in a Microsoft Word Document

By Taylor Gibb on February 29th, 2012


When you email someone a copy of your document or presentation and they don’t have a font installed, the font reverts to default. This can mess up the whole layout, and can be fixed by embedding fonts into your documents.

Embedding Fonts

Just because you use awesome fonts that nobody else has doesn’t mean you should stop using them, instead you can easily embed the fonts in your documents, so go ahead and click on the Files and select Options from the Menu.


When the Options open switch over to the Save section.

Check the embed fonts in the file option.


Since the font is now part of the document the user will be able to see your documents correctly, whether or not they have the font installed. You could also choose to only embed the characters used in your document to reduce file size.
