A Guide to Embedding Fonts on PowerPoint

Fonts play a major role in determining your presentation design. Imagine making a stunning PowerPoint presentation for your big day, and as soon as you start presenting it, you realize that the given computer does not support the fonts! That would be the biggest nightmare and hours of hard work being flushed into the drain!

Hence, to avoid such instances, it is necessary to embed fonts. Doing so allows you to retain the specific fonts used in your presentation on any other device. These fonts work even when they aren’t installed on another computer and keep your slides intact.

This article will guide you through embedding fonts on Windows Operating System and Mac OS.
