On the off chance that you present or offer slides remotely, here are a few choices for evading text style issues: 

  • Utilize your own particular workstation:

If you've utilized a few custom text styles, you can demand exhibiting from your machine. In a few cases, this may not be a choice at a gathering where the sound/visual group needs to institutionalize the fittings being utilized or at an association that doesn't permit outside workstations (security insurances). 

  • Give custom text styles:

If you have to present your slides on an outer machine, you can give the custom text styles alongside your presentation. You then need to trust the sound/visual group for the occasion introduces them, which could be a lower necessity for an extremely occupied group. I've discovered you have to catch up before showing to verify the text styles are introduced on the grounds that it is a minor step that is oftentimes disregarded. Think about compressing the textual styles and PPTX document together so it's more clear that they're needed. In the event that you simply need to impart your presentation to individuals at an alternate association, you ordinarily don't load them with introducing a textual style on their machines (despite the fact that its simple). Moreover, they will most likely be unable to introduce text styles because of IT security confinements. 

  • Change over custom text style to picture:

If you're just utilizing a custom text style as a part of a couple of minor spots, you can change over the content into a picture. Simply duplicate the content box, and afterward glue it as a picture. You evacuate the need to have the text style introduced and still prepare the fancied impact with the custom text style. 

  • Implant custom text styles:

In PowerPoint, you have the alternative of installing custom text styles. One impairment to this methodology is that it can fundamentally swell the span of the PowerPoint document. Imparting huge documents could be inconvenient and you may need to utilize Dropbox or some other document offering device. Most individuals don't have the foggiest idea about that they can insert custom text styles or may see it as a bother and skirt the additional venture simultaneously, gambling how their presentations are seen by others. 

  • PDF your slides:

If you're simply imparting your slides, you can PDF your slides, which will hold whatever textual styles were utilized as a part of the slide. In any case, on the off chance that your PDF your presentation it will lose all its movements, which may not be a suitable alternative. 

  • Dodge custom textual styles:

If you're showing remotely on an alternate machine or know you'll be imparting the PPTX record remotely, you may choose to abstain from utilizing any custom or corporate text styles. While this may go crazy the brand nazis at your association, the most paramount thing is to convey your message viably. Brand contemplations (particularly at the textual style level) ought to be auxiliary to the message in my psyche. 

We all become weary of Microsoft's default fonts–times New Roman, Arial, etc...–but you have to be watchful when picking text styles, particularly on the off chance that they are incorporated in a corporate PowerPoint format. You can't expect in light of the fact that a textual style is accessible on your workstation that other individuals have the same textual style. Other programming items; furthermore Microsoft items likewise introduce text styles on your machine. Case in point, Myriad Pro is a non-Microsoft text style that is introduced on the off chance that you utilize certain Adobe items (Adobe Reader 7 & 8). While a text style may be basic among your group or division (on the grounds that you utilize the same provisions), it may not be imparted over your organization or outside of your organization.
