If you attempt to open an Adobe document or image file on your computer and don't have the font installed that was used when the file was created, your Adobe program will convert any text to the closest font match available. Unfortunately, this conversion can create layout and readability issues. The problem can be avoided by converting the text to outlines in Adobe Acrobat, which changes the text into vector objects, which display the same on virtually all computers.
