Some fonts are not embedded when you save a PowerPoint 2007 presentation in earlier format

Consider the following scenario. You create a presentation in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007. Additionally, you perform one of the following actions:

You save the presentation in PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation format with embedded fonts.
You use the Package for CD feature to save the presentation.

When you open the presentation on a different computer, the original fonts are replaced by other fonts.


This issue occurs because the fonts that you used are restricted fonts. Additionally, the fonts cannot be embedded.


On 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. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Save As.
3. In the Save as type list, click PowerPoint Presentation.
4. Click Tools, and then click Save Options.
5. Under Preserve fidelity when sharing this presentation, click to select the Embed fonts in the file check box.
6. Click OK, and then click Save.
7. A warning message appears if the presentation contains fonts that have embedding restrictions. Replace the restricted fonts with fonts that do not generate a warning message when you save the presentation. To do this, follow these steps:

a. On the Home tab, click the arrow next to Replace in the Editing group, and then click Replace Fonts.
b. Select a font in the Replace list, and then select a similar font in the With list.
c. Click Replace.
d. Repeat steps 7b and 7c as needed to replace other fonts, and then click Close.

Repeat steps 2 through 6 until you can save the presentation without receiving a warning message about embedded fonts.
