# View list of embedded fonts in PDF file with Preview

In Acrobat Reader I can go to File > Properties to see all the metadata for the open PDF file: the program that created the document, author information, embedded fonts, etc.

OS X's Preview can also display metadata, albeit a more limited subset (under Tools > Show Inspector). However, you can't see embedded font information with Preview.

Is there a way in OS X (preferably with Preview, and not with Acrobat) to see what fonts are embedded in a PDF file?

Run either command from the terminal or command-line.

## Mac OS X

strings /path/to/document.pdf | grep FontName


## Windows

findstr FontName C:\path\to\document.pdf
