Document.DoNotEmbedSystemFonts Property

Office 2007
True for Microsoft Word to not embed common system fonts. Read/write Boolean.



expression   An expression that returns a Document object.


Setting the Document property to False is useful if the user is on an East Asian system and wants to create a document that is readable by others who do not have fonts for that language on their system. For example, a user on a Japanese system could choose to embed the fonts in a document so that the Japanese document would be readable on all systems.


This example embeds all fonts in the current document.
