The problem is it is an Open Type font. That font is also available as
Type1 or True Type as well.
Explanation: Scribus currently converts all Open Type fonts to
outlines in PDF export to prevent issues with older viewers, which
works well 99% of the time.
In this case it does not work, as Reader will use its built in fonts
to substitute any fonts it needs and with forms there is text it
knows exists and must render.
Workaround: use any good quality Type 1 or non-Unicode True Type font.
