Fonts in a PowerPoint file
« on: November 14, 2019, 12:40:43 PM »
Is it possible to tell what the font is supposed to be in a Power Point file? I got one to produce as a sign job for our sign shop, and it previews in Mac OS as a serif'd font, but Zamzar converts it to Courier (technically serif'd, but the preview looks more like Times), and when I open it in PowerPoint it changes to Verdana. I have no screenshot and no printout or pdf to compare to.

Hmm, it says to report to Microsoft :laugh:

this article says if you make a pdf and look at document properties you will see the subbed font

Since the file can't seem to decide what font it wants to be, maybe you can choose whatever you like!

It does seem to be a serif font though, so comic sans is not going to be an option.  :(

Turns out to be the fonts I got online from Google fonts (see that thread). Cormorant Garamond and Montserrat.
