Embedding Fonts in Mac Word

Hi all, 

I use the latest version of MS Word on my Mac and wonder, is there a way to embed fonts so they save in the word document or if I save the file as a PDF the embed there? 

I know it can be done on Windows and I'm sure I read somewhere, possibly on the Office Insider box during an update that font embedding can now be done on Word on Mac. 

If anyone can help, that would be great! :)




Hi iamb,


Font Embedding feature is available in Word for Mac, but this feature is only available to Office 365 Subscribers and Office 2019 for Mac, where the version should be greater than 16.17.


To check it:

Open the Word application> Click on the Word in Menu bar> Preferences> Save.



About Microsoft Word at our end:




If you can’t see this option at your end, can you please provide the screenshot of About Microsoft Word? (Open Word application> Click Word in Menu bar> About Word).


Lastly, the fonts will be embedded when you save the document as PDF.
