I'm having a problem displaying Text fields on PowerPoint files which have been transferred from one computer to another.via Laplink. Some presentations are o.k., while others do not properly display Text entries. I've saved the Source presentations in both 97-2003 (ppt) and 2007 (pptx) formats. Both the Source and Target machines are running PowerPoint 2007 under XP Professional. 'Pictures' (graphics) display properly but Text does not.

Files from other MS Office Apps (Excel, Word, etc.) have no problem, either with files originating in Office 2003 or Office 2007.

Any ideas?

    Did you check if same fonts, themes are installed and available?
    One more thing to check - has conversion pack been applied while upgrade, if at all?

    Accepted Solution

    Problem is with the fonts. The fonts used on the presentation are custom fonts. Where can I find the font 'file' to transfer to the other computer?

    Thanks again.
