What exactly is the problem? It loooks to me like you have found the correct dialog to embed fonts.

That dialog also mentions that you can only embed fonts for which the license actually permits embedding (as encoded in the font's "permission bits" as it says). A font that does not allow embedding is indicated with the lock symbol and you won't be able to embed those.

If you're trying to embed fonts that are marked with lock - there's no way we can tell you how to do it since you can't.

If you used Arial fonts in your original document, Acrobat will embed the fonts in your PDF document, unless you instruct it not to do so. Then anyone that reads the PDF document will be able to view the Arial type, and also print it, without having Arial installed in his system.

The principle is the same: instruct Acrobat to 'Embed all fonts'. However, you should note the remark near the bottom of your screen shot, namely that some fonts cannot be embedded, because the designer of the font does not allow it. I do not know any of the fonts visible in your screen shot, so I have no idea if they have embedding restrictions. If you have Microsoft's free Font Properties Extension,* that will tell you if there are any restrictions on embedding.

*Available for download on Microsoft's typography site.
