you don’t have that font. You will need to go through and hunt for all instances of that font
and change them to some other font. Fortunately, PowerPoint has a Replace Fonts feature
that can help you to ﬁ nd all of these instances. Follow these steps:
1. On the Home tab, click the down arrow for the Replace button and choose
Replace Fonts. The Replace Font dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 5.4.
Replace all instances of one font with another.
2. In the Replace drop-down list, select the font that you want to replace. Only
the fonts that are currently in use in the presentation appear on this list, and so
it’s easy to navigate.
3. In the With drop-down list, select the desired replacement font. All of the
available fonts on your system appear here.
4. Click Replace. All of the instances of that font are replaced.
5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 to replace another font, or click Close when you’re finished.
