    Help please! I have been working all winter break to create new literacy centers to use in my classroom and to post on TPT. However, when I upload the files (powerpoint), my font changes to a basic microsoft font instead of keeping the cute fonts that I have used when creating them.

    Has anyone else struggled with this problem? If so, have you figured out how to make it so that your font does not change??

    :help:

    Convert it to a pdf and then post! It should save the font style then.

    What happens with Office docs is that the receiving program has to use display the text using the fonts that are loaded on the computer. This is precisely why Adobe Acrobat was invented - and why, ever since OSX came out, Apple computers have featured an option to "save as pdf".

    Microsoft products (word, excel, etc.) also have that option now.

    It's kind of fun, year by year, watching Microsoft products ever more closely resemble the corresponding Apple software...

    Back before OSX, and when one could easily pay several hundred bucks for Acrobat, I bought a shareware program for OS9 called "Print to PDF"; it allowed only half a dozen or so fonts and was otherwise much less flexible and powerful than Acrobat, but the resulting pdfs were quite serviceable enough to help keep at least two businesses afloat. I have often reflected that that might have been the best twenty bucks I ever spent.
