If you want the new font to be available not only on your PC (well, on the printer, more precisely, already on a printed sheet of paper), but also on other computers, other users, it must be embedded in a text document. Read how to do this below.

Note: Embedding a font in a document will increase the size of the MS Word document.

2. In the "Options" dialog box that appears in front of you, go to the section "Preservation".

3. Check the box next to “Embed fonts in a file”.

4. Choose whether you want to embed only characters that are used in the current document (this will reduce the file size), whether you want to exclude the introduction of system fonts (in fact, it is not needed).

5. Save the text document. Now you can share it with other users, because the new font you added will also be displayed on their computer.
