Working on a MAC with PowerPoint

I hope someone can help me.  I've got the whole Office Suite for MAC on my 
Macbook Pro.  I love working with PPT and I've created a nice presentation 
for our staff to view.  Now, I know to save the presentation as a .ppsx so 
that it will open as only as a slide show.  

My problem is that I've used certain MAC fonts in my presentation that may 
not be found on PC's so therefore, if I run the presentation on a PC it looks 
different because it tries to use different fonts in place of the ones that I 
used on the MAC.  Is there a way to just have PPT launch exactly what I 
created and not replace fonts when I send a presentation from a MAC to a PC?

Thank you in advance for your help.

If the fonts you used on the Mac aren't installed on the PC, then it's GOT to 
choose some other font to use for your text.  

Going from PC to PC, you can embed some fonts into the presentation file, but 
Mac PPT versions can't embed fonts or use embedded fonts.  If you can do a bit 
of editing on a PC that has the needed fonts, and if the fonts are embeddable, 
you might be able to solve the problem that way.  

You'd still have font failures when the presentation's viewed on other Macs that 
don't have the same font.

You can give a heavy sigh, then stick strictly to fonts that are likely to be on 
all computers that will view the presentation.  Suboptimal.  Yes.

Depending on how you go about it, you can make PDFs that embed needed fonts in a 
way that's cross-platform compatible.  PDFs won't do all the animations and 
other effects that a PPT will, but if your needs are simpler, they're not a bad 
way to run a slide show.

Powerpoint 2007 03-12-10
I have tried to change the theme or template to an existing presentation but Powerpoint will not apply the change? Suggestions? How are you going about changing the theme/template? What is happening -- or not happening, as the case may be? Which version of PPT? Assuming PPT 2007, you might try hitting the Reset button on Home tab | Slides group (next to the New Slide button). Sometimes if there are a lot of customizations to the slide in question, you have to reset its layout. -- Echo [MS PPT MVP] What's new in PPT 2010? http://www.echosvoic...

Outlook 2000 password doesn't work... :-(

How does the email router work?
As I understand it you set a rule on the user's inbox that forwards the email to the CRMMail account. What I am not clear on is whether 1) The emails forwarded will be viewable by all users or 2) You can set it so that emails are forwarded to the relevant user only. What i am trying to do is to allow users to view their exchange inbox from within CRM. If option 2 is possible, could someone explain to me how to accomplish this? Thanks What is seen in CRM is NOT the exchange inbox. They are seperate records and are only loosely linked. Deleting one does not delete the other, so...
