How to handle Font types in SolidWorks

How do others select the most used and remaining font for SolidWorks?

Had to do a lot of work to solve the Windows 10 missing fonts that have been used in files of previous SolidWorks versions.

Even new SolidWorks 2019 templates are missing fonts.

If you are working in a steady team, this is all ease to correct. If you have to share files with people all over the world, this gets an annoying problem. I can not control all Windows installations, SolidWorks settings, Toolbox content etc. of all our contacts. I have embedded most data in to the files I share, but Fonts can not be embedded in SolidWorks files like we do in PDF files. Would be nice we had an embedded font pointed out, that is available in every SolidWorks running system.
