Many free font sites are available, but you must download and install the font on your computer. You and the client must purchase a license if it is a premium font. 


Major watch out: If other users don’t have the font installed, Microsoft will choose the closest match that may not display the font you wanted. 


To ensure others see your chosen font, you can: 

Option 1: 

  • For free fonts, send the client the font link and instructions on how to install 
  • Save font to C:/Windows/Fonts

Option 2:  

  • Save your slides as images
    • Save As | Download as image 
  • Create a separate PowerPoint 
  • Import your images into slides as images 
    • Insert Picture | From Device | Select Images 
  • Note: This alternative is not ideal if you want others to edit content.
