How can we improve PowerPoint Online? Vote for an existing idea or share a new one.

Support custom fonts

Provide the ability to use different type (fonts). Our corporate deck does not use standard typefaces. There should be a way to use different typefaces in the online tools.

    This is an absolute must have! What is the reasoning behind it? Technical or We just don't want Google Fonts??

    Hi @PG, i see this idea has been under Preview for over 2 years now. Are there any updates yet? We also have Company specific Fonts, that should also be used in Online Versions of Office as well as in the mobile Apps

    An absolute requirement.
    We're an information design company with many corporate clients and the main reason we're moving them to online tools is that our work requires professional typography — and that requires professional typefaces. Adobe Typekit access, Google web fonts, and our own purchased typefaces in that order.

    Without this, we'll be migrating to build client decks as small web sites.

    Font choices are very limited in office365 online. Our corporate brand requires the use of specific fonts, which is a very typical use case. This means any branded material we develop using powerpoint online will not render correctly, which comprises the majority of the content we are creating. This is currently one of the biggest obstacles in selecting Office 365 over GSuite as a corporate standard.

    When Power Point Online don't have the necessary embeded fonts to open slides, the user could be free to add the fonts by himself to his own

    I need specific fonts for my presentations, but after the last update, my app no longer recognizes them and won't allow me to edit my slides. :(
    I hope we can find a way to install third party fonts soon!!!

    When a presentation contains a font that cannot be installed in the online version, you get a popup just saying that. This is not enough information to "fix" the presentation in the offline version.
    My first suggestion is to use substitution fonts (maybe highlight them), which is common practice in a lot of software. My second suggestion is to indicate *which* font cannot be installed and *where* it occurs, so that users can make amends.

    It would be great if you could use your own fonts in PowerPoint Online - I used DIN Condensed in an offline presentation but it keeps changing it to the font I can't stand - CALIBRI

    PowerPoint Online only has English font and few fonts. How about add fonts that inside user's computer? It'll make nice to many people are living another countries.

    The ability to use and add fonts of choice as a default is so essential as many corporations have their own branding standards. Microsoft for Mac 2016 eliminates the ability to use the fonts that I have to use for my clients! This and many other inefficient basic workflow issues becomes a real problem for me to use this program. Literally a drag to build slides and style everything as you go! Please update!!!!!!

    Agreed. I used a font I have purchased and it looked bizarre during presntation. Letters became infinity sign or greek letters, or gibberish. It was a presentation to 8th graders and I think of them as an important audience. At least have Powerpoint warn about this as presentation is saved. I am going to check out alternative programs.
