Getting Started

Embedding fonts into PowerPoint files for the first time with Presentation Font Embedder is quick and easy.

Your first font embedding

Follow these steps to quickly embed fonts into a PowerPoint presentation on your Mac for the first time:

  1. Save the presentation file that you are working on (if you haven’t done so already).
  2. Launch Presentation Font Embedder and wait for the font indexing to finish. This wait is only required on the first launch.
  3. Drag the presentation file into the Presentation Font Embedder window. Embedding will begin.
  4. When embedding has finished, you will be prompted to save the newly embedded file on your drive. Save it.

You’re all set!

If you followed these steps, you now have a new copy of your PowerPoint presentation, which contains the fonts that you used. You may go ahead and share this file with confidence that your recipients will be able to view the file exactly as you meant it to be presented.

 

Trying a different embedding method

You may have noticed that on the left side of the application window, there is the option to select a font embedding method. On your first font embedding, you used the Universal embedding method, which is the default embedding method and the one that we recommend for most situations.

You may choose to embed utilizing the second embedding method, Editable. This method works similar to how PowerPoint embeds fonts on Windows. Although you may embed with this method on your Mac using Presentation Font Embedder, this method is intended for sharing presentation with recipients using Windows or Android devices only, as the macOS and iOS versions of PowerPoint cannot open fonts embedded with this method.

To embed using the Editable method:

  1. Click the button that says ‘Editable’ to tell Presentation Font Embedder to use it as its embedding method.
  2. Drag a presentation file into the Presentation Font Embedder window. Embedding will begin.
  3. When embedding has finished, you will be prompted to save the newly embedded file on your drive. Save it.

You will now have another copy of your presentation, this time embedded using the Editable embedding method.

Feel free to test the two generated files on other computers which do not have your fonts installed. You will quickly see which method better serves your needs!
