how do I add new fonts to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?? - required for consistent document editing.
Is it possible to load new fonts into Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I have some documents that require editing however the required fonts are not currently in the system
Kathy Boyd commented
Pretty much what Matthew J said. But I only downloaded the desired font on my Windows PC and and went in Fonts by itself. I shut down the Adobe and reopened and it was there. I hope this helps.

All I did was copy-paste the .ttf files into C:\Windows\Fonts and they appeared in Adobe PDF after restarting the program. No Adobe Cloud, no Oleg Sidarenko, no opening 'File' this or 'Options' that, nothing. Just copy-paste and done.

If your on windows and have access to your fonts library through the control or command center you can simply find a free download of the font that you need and copy them into your fonts library. restart adobe and you should have the new fonts

Forget all the broken-record advice about Adobe Cloud from the gimps here, just scroll down to the post by Oleg Sidarenko in the above link and follow his directions. Managed to add fonts to DC (that had previously been installed to Windows) manually.

It would be lovely if someone, ANYONE, would answer the actual question and not these worthless "activate in Adobe Cloud" answers. Nobody asked that.
What people are asking--and I've run into this myself--is that you can install otf/ttf fonts in Windows and they will NOT be accessible in Acrobat DC. If you're trying to repair a document from someone else, that uses a given font and you can't find it via DC for either the File-Print to Adobe PDF--edit method, or the Preflight method, then you can't do the work.
ALL of us who've run into this would love to know the answer--which is NOT about activating an Adobe CC font.

The above instruction worked fine for me.
Once you activate the font on adobe creative cloud, you need to close all applications and restart adobe dc.
if you don't restart then the font won't show at all, hope this helps.

It is a bit tricky.
1. The font which you want to activate using the Adobe CC app can be previewed in the font tab of the adobe application which you are using. *When the font is not available for editing it just shows the name.
2. Open the Adobe Creative Cloud app and go to the fonts tab.
3. Enter the font you wish to activate in the search tab.
4. You will be redirected to a page in the web browser. Just double-click the font and then click on the active tab on the top right-hand side.
5. Restart the Adobe application to use and edit.
Hope this helps. Tried and tested.
All the customizations and additions of fonts, templates, plugins can only be done using the Adobe Creative Cloud App.

I also have this issue and would very much like it resolved. I have tried to recommended items and the font is on my adobe creative and my machine but the pdf editor refuses to offer or use it. This is such a huge pain and may mean I completely change the font of the document which is extremely frustrating.

We still don't have an answer to the question in the title for this thread!!!
The link below gives instructions on how to add a font to Windows. Even after you do that, Adobe does not recognize it.
The issue has NOT been resolved!!!
I had fonts in Adobe DC and now they are gone! How do I get them back?
Have this issue as well. How do we get the fonts that we used in the working InDesign file to work in the pdf?
I am inserting in a line that they can change on the pdf form and the font I'm using isn't in the Acrobat available fonts.
I have the same issue!!!!! Missing fonts are installed on the sytem and they show up in MS Office as well as in AI ID etc , visible in Acrobat fonts but not in Acrobat pdf.
I'm editing a document that uses a font that is not included in my existing Adobe Acrobat Pro DC pool of fonts? How can I add a new font?
Bilal's links do NOT work as they only explain how to install fonts when you have a specific font file on your machine.
However my issue, and the previous comments all show that the issue is when we Activate an Adobe Font through creative cloud, it shows up in other software but not in Adobe Acrobat.
Because it is an Adobe Font through creative cloud we don't have a font file to use as per the link instructions.
This appears to be an Adobe issue, not a Microsoft/windows issues.
So, have got some unique fonts via creative cloud, which I use in word, but then when I convert to pdf, I cannot get those fonts?????????? How bloody ridiculous, when I got the fonts via adobe in the first place!!!!!!!!
I have the same issue on Mac 10.13.6 Acrobat DC Pro 2019.
Missing fonts are installed on the sytem and they show up in Ilustrator but not in Acrobat.
Tried to clean cache and preferences but nothing worked.
Any idea ?
I have activated 3 fonts from Adobe Fonts via the Adobe Creative Cloud. They appear in the word font menu, but when I convert to pdf, the fonts are automatically changed. When I go into edit pdf, I an see the Adobe Fonts there, so I can manually change them. It appears however that I cannot embed them, as they do not appear in any of the embedding font sources.

I had a small pop up. It included a few font choices. It also had a few choices in fonts like Staple font, Medium, Dark and you could select which font of your choice. I can't find it.
I have a similar problem. I have reinstalled Calibri on my mac multiple times but I can't get it to show up in the font list when editing a pdf in acrobat pro
I have quit Adobe Acrobat Pro DC many times and it has not worked. the font is installed in my Windows system (i use it in Word) but Adobe does not recognize it. Any way to get it to recognize the font?
