Embed fonts in Word documents

I want to be able to embed fonts in Word Documents so that I have the fonts on any computer I open that document on. This feature is in Word for Windows but not Word for Mac.

        Yes please, it is 2018. We can do anything and everything, but we still don't have embedded fonts on Word for Mac..weird isn't?

        this is essential, it's ridiculous that work for mac can't do this. PLEASE make this update ASAP

        Can't believe this is not included. Just about to go to a printer and book cover has fonts my wife PC does not have. The cover fonts are now a redo. You might need to be a bit more upfront about how you explain this: just say its not included instead of dancing around the facts please.

        This would be great but note that it's never been possible in Word for Mac. It may simply be impossible to program in because of how macOS is written.

        Please, please, please add this feature to Microsoft Word for Mac. I've got a manuscript ready for my publisher and they won't accept the file unless it's a PDF with embedded fonts. I was certain it wouldn't be an issue because I've used the feature on my pc. Now that I've switched to a Mac, suddenly I've lost a feature that I'd come to rely on. Please, please, please add this feature to word for Mac!!!

        Please add the embed fonts option to Microsoft Word for Mac. Why offer PC users this feature and not Mac users? As a designer I use a wide variety of fonts and when a Word doc is required in a specific brand then you need to be able to embed specific fonts.

        Please find a way to EMBED FONTS in 2016 Word for MAC Documents. Either that, or have Amazon stop asking for embedded fonts when submitting a manuscript under Kindle Direct Publishing.
