change default font for PDF documents

The default font for my Adobe X was somehow changed and I'd like to restore to the default font when reading PDF files. I do now know the steps for changing the default font used to display PDF files. THANK YOU!

Hi Frank,

Text in a PDF file is assigned a font when the PDF is created. If that font is not assigned or embedded then the Adobe Reader will use a substitute font. But this is not a typical case for PDFs viewed on a desktop or laptop system, unless you are using a mobile devise or reader like a Kindle- is that the case here?

Hope this helps,

No - The Font that is substituted when none imbedded is the one that changed and I'd like to revert to the default font that would normally be substituted when the PDF does not have an embedded font. Thanks!

Hi Frank,

Are you using a mobile devise or reader like a Kindle? Or is this on a desktop computer?

Desktop running Windows 7 / Adobe Acrobat X Standard (10.0) - For some reason after I created a PDF document, saved it and closed the program then when I went to use it again the default display font had changed to one of the fonts I used in the document I had created from an OCR session.
