Some fonts are not embedded when you save a PowerPoint 2010 or later presentation in an earlier format


When you open a PowerPoint 2010 or later presentation that was created on a different computer and saved in the "PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation" format with the fonts embedded, you find that the original fonts are replaced by other fonts.


This problem occurs because the fonts that you used are either restricted fonts or cannot be embedded.


Using the computer on which the presentation was created, follow these steps to replace the restricted fonts with fonts that can be embedded:

  1. Open the PowerPoint presentation.
  2. In PowerPoint 2010, Select File > Save As. In PowerPoint 2007, select the Microsoft Office button, and then select Save As.
  3. In the Save as type list, select PowerPoint Presentation, and save the file.
  4. Select Files > Options, and then select Save.
  5. Under Preserve fidelity when sharing this presentation, select the Embed fonts in the file check box.
  6. Select OK, and then select Save.
  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 as many times as necessary until you can save the presentation without receiving a warning message about embedded fonts.

If you are not the original creator of the file, but have a font that must be changed in an existing file, use the following steps to replace all instances of that particular font in the file.

  1. On the Home tab, navigate to the Editing group, select the arrow next to Replace, and then select Replace Fonts.
  2. In the Replace list, select a font, and then select a similar font from the With list.
  3. Select Replace.
