Some fonts in my converted PDF are not the same as in the original PowerPoint
This often happens when you are using Adobe Type 1 fonts in your presentation, and using the free Microsoft Save as PDF and XPS add-in to convert your presentations to PDFs. However, this add-in works fine with Open Type and True Type fonts.
Why is the Save as PDF and XPS add-in not a default option?
Why doesn't Microsoft make the Save as PDF and XPS add-in as a part of Office rather than requiring me to download it as a separate add-in? That's a great question -- and no one knows for sure why they implemented the PDF output option as an extra add-in requiring a separate installation. But you can send your feedback to Microsoft.
