Word – Convert text to SVG/vector in a Word document (custom fonts)

fontsmicrosoft-word-2013pdfsvgvector graphics

I have a couple of custom fonts which I would like to use in a handout I am sending out. However, as a base font I use a custom font that other users will not have installed. Is it possible to embed this font one way or another in an Office Word document? I was thinking SVG or any other vector format (I don't want to use a rasterized image!)

Note that I also want the imported "image"/vector to be compatible with the pdf format so that I can export the Word document as PDF as well.

There is no need for SVG conversion, but if you want that it is doable with Inkscape.

Launch Word, create/open a document then go to

  • File
  • Options
  • Save

and check Embed fonts in document.
