How to Embed Fonts in a Microsoft Word and PowerPoint?

When you email a copy of your Word document or PowerPoint presentation to someone, and they don’t have a font installed, Microsoft Office shows that file with the default font instead. This unnecessarily messes up the whole layout and makes the document look completely different. So, to fix these issues, you can embed fonts into your documents.

Microsoft Office apps let you embed fonts in your Word documents and PowerPoint presentations. That way, if you share your file with someone else who doesn’t have the same fonts installed, the file’s fonts, layout, and styling won’t change, and special characters won’t turn into meaningless rectangles.

Additionally, embedding custom fonts into your document does help with the online conversion to pdf files. When you embed such custom fonts into the document, the online conversion tool may use these fonts.

Although Embed Fonts are helpful in many cases, this increases the size of the file. However, if someone opens that file, they will see it with its intended font. This feature is only available in the Windows versions of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher. This doesn’t work in the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, or web versions of Word or PowerPoint.
