powerpoint font issue
Posted on 2008-10-17
We've created a PowerPoint template, and thus far it works perfect. However, we have one strange bug...
If you copy a slide from another presentation (not based off our template) and insert it...
1.) If you initially chose to use the destination formatting, the slide works perfectly.
2.) If you initially chose to keep the source formatting, the slide works perfectly.
But if you chose to use the destination formatting, but then switch to keep source formatting...
The font type of the slide changes and does not match either the font of the template or the original source.
The font is still English characters, but I can't tell you what font it changed to because now the font list only displays 1 font choice, which is named in Chinese characters. If you try to replace the mystery font, the mystery font is not listed, but the master template fonts are.
This only affects the imported slide. Any other slide will have its normal fonts and the fonts available will include all and only the fonts from the template (which is appropriate).
