When you create a presentation on a computer that uses one set of fonts, itmight not look the same on another computer that has different fonts. Youmay be able to solve this problem by saving (or embedding) your fonts inthe presentation.
To save your presentation so that the fonts will display and print properlywhen you open the presentation in PowerPoint on another system, embed the True Type Fonts into the presentation:
  1. On the File menu, click Save As.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Embed TrueType Fonts
NOTE: You can embed any TrueType font that comes with Windows. OtherTrueType fonts can be embedded only if they have no license restrictions.If a font can't be embedded (for example, it's not marked as being editableor installable) a message appears to tell you why.

NOTE: Saving a presentation with embedded fonts increases the file size of your presentation.

PowerPoint supports Edit-level TrueType font embedding. This meansthat if you open a presentation that contains embedded fonts which aren'talready installed on your system, you can use those fonts on other textwithin the same presentation, but you can't use them in otherpresentations.

PowerPoint supports embedding TrueType fonts when saving in thefollowing formats:
  • Presentation
  • PowerPoint 97-2000 & 95 Presentation
  • PowerPoint Show
