Does PowerPoint Know I Need a Font?

Does PowerPoint Know I Need a Font? | Digital Presentations in Education |

If you use a custom font in a presentation, and that custom font is not installed on the computer that is viewing the presentation, a font default - or substitution - is used. We cannot control which font is used as the default and we cannot guarantee what the slide will look like with the default font in use.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

You have installed a beautiful new font on your computer. But what to do if the font that you used in your presentation has suddenly changed when you present from another computer? This article suggests what you can do to avoid the problem.


In answer to the comments:

The only precaution you can take is to check the fonts on the computer you will be using, as described in the article. If the font is not there, you can try changing the fonts in your presentation by those which are available or accept the default font.

I'd like to add that it is possible to embed your unique font on your presentation and never lose it.

The article doesn't mention what can be done ...

5 Typography Tips for Every Presenter

Since handwritten fonts increases online conversion and are more read in direct mail, you'll probably find some use for this!

Scooped by Baiba Svenca! - choose the best font - choose the best font | Digital Presentations in Education | helps you choose fonts by previewing a word of your choice with the fonts installed on your computer.
Baiba Svenca's insight:

An awesome tool for presentation designers!

In the text box, type a word or a sentence that you'd like to preview, load the fonts which are installed on your computer, and see how all fonts look.

The preview option is fantastic for those languages that have special characters which don't show with all fonts.
