Change the font for the Typewriter tool in Adobe Acrobat.

Adobe Acrobat is the primary software used to create and edit Portable Document Format (PDF) documents. To type new text on a PDF page, or to create a PDF form for others to fill out on their computers, use Acrobat's Typewriter tool. The tool is helpful for filling out flat forms (non-interactive), as you can simply type over the blank fields. The Typewriter toolbar allows you to change text properties, including the font, font size, color and line spacing.


Step 1

Open either a blank page or existing PDF document in Adobe Acrobat.
