How To: Add and Keep Custom Fonts in PowerPoint

Before we get into the juicy content of adding and keeping custom fonts in Microsoft PowerPoint, I want you to try and imagine this situation.

Recently I was asked to run a training session for a colleague, apparently a board game convention in Germany was more important (not that I am jealous). It was a simple session. He had all the material ready, it looked great. Trainer notes were good.

He emailed me the presentation and I was ready to go. All I had to do was present the material to a group of new recruits.
Now one thing which I always do before I present material is make sure it works across my equipment. Oh boy, was I glad that I did this.
My colleague had used fonts which are not naturally found in the MS office suite.

Everything was out of place, the fonts did not match the style of objects and everything had moved. It made me slightly angry for two reasons.

1. The presentation looked bad and would reflect on me
2. My colleague should have known this would happen

It was too late now to get the font that my colleague had used as he was in Germany. So I quickly improvised with a font that looked similar. But it did cause a lot of unnecessary work.
