  1. EMBED FONTS

    I want to throw my computer out the window every single time I have to create a powerpoint presentation and suddenly remember I can't embed fonts after I've spent hours perfecting my presentation using fonts that are specific to my computer. If this issue isn't fixed soon, I'm going to have to find an alternative to Powerpoint. This has been a major problem for me, and really the ONLY major problem I've run into after switching from a PC to a Mac.

        • EMEBD FONTS IN FILE IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FUNCTION I NEED!!!

          Can you image I have to change thousands of words to pictures and delete and then insert them back, just for the fucking presentations in Windows ? IT'S TOTALLY A DISASTER!

          • PLEASE allow for font embedding!

            I am a designer working for an in-house design team and am often forced to use Powerpoint so that sales teams, etc can edit the content down the road. This makes it IMPOSSIBLE to design decks with our brand fonts because as soon as the sales team sends them out via email to the world, whoever opens it out there loses all sense of the intended design! This is so unhelpful. Please fix.

            • Embed Fonts

              I've paid for a subscription, so I expect to be able to embed fonts. The fact that I can't is ridiculous! I agree with others on the forum this feature is super important! I need to be able to use my Mac, embed fonts (as I've been crafting a presentation to look a certain way), send to clients who are able to open the presentation with either their mac or pc. They also need to be able to edit these presentations while preserving the fonts the whole time. This is such a pain point for me. Please fix this soon.

              • Please make PowerPoint for Mac identical to PowerPoint for other laptops

                Why are some features left out of office for Mac? I am taking an introduction to computers class, and am unable to do everything in most assignments due to the fact that Office for Mac has left out a lot of features, such as cropping video.

                • Embed Fonts

                  Embed fonts PLEASE! As you know, most designers work on MacOS and for designers, fonts are VERY IMPORTANT. This is an essential feature for us... Thanks!

                  • embed fonts

                    I am creating a Powerpoint presentation for a client, who needs the flexibility to change the text for each sales team member. I need to be able to embed the fonts.

                    • Add Format Painter

                      Across the board it seems that format painter is missing for Office on Mac! Why the partiality?

                      • Standard Control-key support

                        Whenever I'm entering text on a Mac, in *every* application except for Office, I have access to control-key navigation to move left/right/up/down etc without taking my hands off the home keys. With Word the problem isn't so bad because you can remap keys. But this makes PowerPoint very painful to use for a seasoned Mac user, because we type something like control-E to go to end-of-ilne (in every other Mac app), and PowerPoint has repurposed this to some weird nonstandard thing that centers the text. PowerPoint is not being a good citizen of the Mac platform. For more background, see…

                              Most designers that I know work on a mac. Designers are really the people who care most about fonts. I will give up on powerpoint & find another program to create slideshows before I will give up my mac for a PC.....

                                • ALL options on Mac that are available for Windows

                                  Enable ALL options on the Mac, not only for PowerPoint but for all programs. It's so irritating and inconvenient to have to find a Windows computer for certain functions even though I have the same program for the Mac. Totally unacceptable to only have certain features available only for Windows computers when Macs are becoming more common.

                                    I have strict company image to preserve. Not being able to embed Fonts feels like a set back to Office '97. Please add this feature.

                                        • embed fonts on your inferior product

                                          i know and don't care that this isn't a new idea. maybe someone will pay attention if there are more posts than necessary. thank you for confirming how inferior this tool. it is extremely important for all designers who are forced to work in PowerPoint to be able to embed fonts.
