How do I change the Liberation Sans font which seems to be embedded in the fillable text boxes in a pdf I created?

I created a fillable pdf form using Libre Writer, utilizing Form Controls for the fillable text boxes. I am using Version When I send the form to a recipient to fill it out, and they try to type within the fillable text boxes, all that shows is a line of dots. Sometimes, there is a message that says that the Liberation Sans font cannot be read (or words to that effect). I would like to somehow change the text boxes to accept a more common font, such as Arial, that most recipients would have in their devices.
