You selected a single -byte font to replace a double- byte font. Please select a double-byte font.

    for some fonts, each character takes up 1 byte of memory.
    Some take 2 bytes ( this we call as unicode support).

    Font like Japanese, Chinese take 2 bytes .
    Try selecting any uincode option if you have on the PowerPoint for the double byte fonts !
