Embedding fonts in Microsoft Word 2010
Fonts play a huge role in Microsoft Word 2010. In Microsoft Word 2010, sometimes the fonts look different when you copy text from another application or a web page. If you want to use the same fonts as the ones you copy from different applications, you can embed fonts in Microsoft Word 2010. Embedding fonts in Word will make sure that the same font would be used no matter where the document is opened.
Sometimes, if you use a font that’s not available on other computer, Microsoft Word 2010 will replace the newer font with something else and the appearance of the document is changed because of that. You can stop this font trouble by embedding fonts in your Word documents. So let’s see how you can embed fonts in Word 2010 easily.
Click on the ‘File’ tab on the Ribbon on the Microsoft Word to being the process. Once you are on the ‘File’ tab on the Ribbon, click the option ‘Options’. Once you select the option ‘Options’, a window would be displayed on the screen. From that window, select the option ‘Save’ which can be found on the left side of the window. After you click the option ‘Save’, you’d be seeing the option ‘Embed fonts in the file’ option.
Check or select the option in the window and save the changes / preferences. Once you save the options, you can close the window and try using a new font on the file and test it by opening it from another PC which would not have the font that you have used in the document! The document will display the text in the new font that you have used, even if the computer in which the document is opened doesn’t have the font installed in it! This is how you embed fonts in a Microsoft Word 2010 document.
