Find Substituted Fonts in PowerPoint

Find Substituted Fonts in PowerPoint

The situation is familiar: you or someone else uses a non-standard font (not a PowerPoint safe font) in your presentation. You then open this same presentation on another computer, and PowerPoint uses another font to display the same text. Why does it do so? The reason is simple enough: the font originally used is not available on the other system. The end user has no idea that PowerPoint substituted one font with another. There is no information provided at all. The font that is used as a substitute cannot be identified. If you have 500 fonts on your system, there’s no way to understand why PowerPoint used a certain font as a substitute.

Learn how you can find out the actual name of the font that PowerPoint used to substitute the original font.

Slides Pane

Slides Pane

PowerPoint 2016’s work area below the Ribbon continues to be tri-paned. These three panes comprise the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Slides Pane is the thin strip on the left side of the PowerPoint 2016 interface that contains thumbnails of all your slides. Within Normal view, the Slide Pane allows you to move slides easily from one position to the other just by dragging and dropping.


Quick Access Toolbar

Quick Access Toolbar

Soon after power users install a new application, they want to customize their menus and toolbars so that their most often used commands are accessible with fewer clicks, or even custom keyboard shortcuts. And even if you are not a power user, you should explore a very useful option that we explain in this tutorial, this will make your tasks easier, and quicker.


Live Preview

Live Preview

Editing any slide object works the same way, irrespective of whether you are editing a picture, a chart, some SmartArt, or even text. You select the object you want to edit and change some attributes. You then get to see your changes, and then you either undo your changes if you are not too happy with them or just accept them. You can then start working with another object! What if you could see/preview how an actual change will look on the slide object before you decide to accept or decline that change? PowerPoint 2016’s Live Preview allows you to do just that.


Switch Views Between Multiple Presentations

Switch Views Between Multiple Presentations

Let’s imagine you have four presentations open and you can only see the one that is active. What about the other three presentations? How do you navigate to those presentations without having to close, or minimize the active presentation? In this tutorial, you will learn how to switch between multiple open presentations in PowerPoint 2016. With this option, you can easily switch in between different presentation windows (without reducing the window size).

Outline View

Outline View in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Even though the Outline view is new for PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, it's not absolutely new since you always had access to your presentation's text outline through the Slides/Outline Pane on the left side of the PowerPoint interface. What's changed though is that you no longer need to switch tabs within the Pane, as you would do in PowerPoint 2011. Now you just access the outline within a new view! The Outline view displays all the text contained within the title and text placeholders of your slides.
