Enfocus solves the challenge of missing fonts in PDF files with PitStop Font Fix

Enfocus today announced PitStop FontFix, a new Adobe® Acrobat® Pro and Standard plug-in that can check and replace fonts missing from PDF files. PDF is an extremely popular file format used by a wide range of markets, including graphic arts, government, corporate, financial and medical professionals, worldwide. 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 company specializing in the development 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 PDF 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.

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.
