_Document.DoNotEmbedSystemFonts Property 

Determines if Microsoft Word embeds common system fonts.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in microsoft.office.interop.word.dll)

'Usage
Dim _Document1 As _Document

Dim returnValue As Boolean
returnValue = _Document1.DoNotEmbedSystemFonts

Dim sampleValue As Boolean
_Document1.DoNotEmbedSystemFonts = sampleValue

bool DoNotEmbedSystemFonts {get; set;}
public boolean get_DoNotEmbedSystemFonts();
public void set_DoNotEmbedSystemFonts(boolean);
function get DoNotEmbedSystemFonts() : Boolean;
function set DoNotEmbedSystemFonts(Boolean);

This property returns True if Microsoft Word does not embed common system fonts, and False if Word embeds system fonts. Set this property to True or False to enable or disable the functionality.

Setting the DoNotEmbedSystemFonts 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.
