PowerPoint 2011 formatting issues

A client of mine has three users, all using MacBook Pros and Office 2011 for Mac Home and Business (version 14.4.8). When users A and B open a PowerPoint presentation, the formatting looks correct. However, when user C opens the same PowerPoint presentation, the formatting looks horrible - words running off the page, text alignment is off, etc. It happens on multiple presentations to the same user. All user are on the exact same release of Office 2011. Any ideas?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

On the PC, not having a local printer driver installed and set as the default printer is often the cause for these kinds of display issues. Not sure about on a Mac, but it would be worth trying. You don't have to have an actual printer installed -- you just need the printer driver, and it needs to be set as the default printer. This is because PPT relies heavily on the printer driver for its display. (I know, I know.)

The other thing that comes to mind is a missing font. What font is being used in these presentations?

@Echo_S - thanks for the quick reply. All three users have the same printer installed and set to default. I will check the font.

No, sorry. What about the font? Is the font in use installed on the system?

If that's not it, I'd trash that user's preferences and see if it resolves.

@Echo_S - they all have the same fonts installed. What is the best way to delete the preferences of the affected user?
