The only universal PowerPoint® font embedding solution for Mac® users. Includes not one, but two embedding methods!

Presentation Font Embedder gives you the freedom to use the fonts that you want by attaching them to your presentation files for display everywhere.

Users of PowerPoint on Mac - push your slides to the maximum by setting the right tone and theme with fresh and exciting titles and texts to keep your audience engaged. A whole universe of special fonts is waiting to open up for you - just imagine the possibilities!

• Password-free Microsoft Office 2007 and above presentations only.
• The 'Editable' embedding method embeds TrueType® and OpenType®-TrueType fonts with embedding permissions only, and supports display on Windows, Android, and, with recent versions of PowerPoint - on Mac. Some fonts may not embed using this method - see
• The 'Universal' embedding method, which supports display on all platforms and embedding of all fonts, requires an up-to-date version of Microsoft PowerPoint 2011 or above installed. This app depends on support provided by PowerPoint for the Universal embedding method to work, and was tested to work with the most recent versions of PowerPoint at the time of the last app update. Beta versions of PowerPoint, also known as Insider previews, may work but are not supported.

Works Great for Free Fonts, Can’t Embed Most Paid License Fonts

Font foundries have the ability to set restrictions for embedding fonts that they design. They may decide to restrict edibility of embedded font, or restrict embedding altogether. Be aware that if you paid for (licensed) a font, it is likely restricted from embedding and will not be embedded in editable mode. The workaround is to use the “universal” method which converts your fonts to images. This works pretty well, but some of your animations will be off—for example, if you have a series of bullets, they will become a single image. If you want to build them point-by-point, you’re going to have to put each bulleted section in its own text box.

When Presentation Font Embedder encounters a font that is restricted for embedding, the font is skipped and a warning about this is shown in the results panel. If you’re a graphic designer who has paid for and used commercially licensed fonts, you’ll experience this issue often.

Overall this is a useful tool if you realize what you’re getting when you go into it. It’s sort of a “best alternative” to getting someone to install the proper fonts on their system to view the presentation the way it was originally designed.

Dear bcrockett1,
Thank you very much for your comprehensive review, it really helps other users, we are very grateful.
From our experience, most fonts, including commercial ones, are not restricted for the Editable method. Anyway, we always recommend the Universal method because of the additional Mac and iPhone support.
Thank you for mentioning the workaround for the bulleted sections animations, this is indeed a very useful workaround.

Love this APP - but gives me a headache

I bought this app couple years ago. Now it’s a miss and go. Sometimes it work other times it shows as damaged. Very irritating. Not worth your money or time anymore unless the developers update it. But when it works, it works good. Please do something about it, developers.

Does just what it says it will do

It works flawlessly. It can generate two kinds of output: “universal” doens’t embed your fonts, it makes bitmaps out of them in the destination Power Point doc — looks perfect. The other kind, “editable”, actually does embed fonts in the .pptx file. Use that approach if you want a document you or a recipient can open on Windows and modify (but you still won’t be able to modify the .pptx on your Mac).

Those two approaches pretty much cover the universe of possible solutions to this annoying Microsoft limitation. I’m grateful the software developer identified this niche and filled it.

Dear Hughpad,
Thank you for your review and we are very happy to hear that you find Presentation Font Embedder useful and like it. Thank you for your explanation on our two embedding methods. By the way: It is possible to change the output resolution of the Universal method using the Preferences menu item. We invite you to join our newsletter and keep in touch.
