Font changes when printing a powerpoint presentation

    I have a presentation that I have not made myself where the font is Arial,
    but when I print the presentation the font changes to Times New Roman + its
    size changes as well. This causes the presentation to unreadable when printed
    out as the different and larger font disappears behind pictures pasted into
    the presentation. Any idea on how to solve this?

    You could try "round-tripping" the file to see if that helps:

    The times (pun unintentional but unexpurgated regardless) I've seen this, the
    only thing that helped was re-making the slide from scratch.

    Hi there

    A couple of thoughts:

    1. Make sure you have a local colour printer driver installed (even if you
    have no printer) and set as default:
    How to install a local printer driver
    http://pptfaq.com/FAQ00605.htm

    2. What font is the presentation trying to use? It may be it is replacing an
    unkown font with Arial on screen but Times New Roman in print (I thought it
    replaced serifs with TNR and sans-serifs with Arial ut I'm so often wrong).
    Check Format -> Replace Fonts -> are there any fonts with a ? next to them in
    the top box? If so replace with Arial and see if this helps. Oh, if you use
    2007 you'll find that on the Home tab in the Editing box -> Replace drop down
    arrow -> Replace fonts.
