If when trying to save your PowerPoint file, you get an error stating Some of your fonts cannot be saved with the presentation then know that this error occurs when PowerPoint cannot read the font you use in your presentation.
Why do some fonts not work in PowerPoint?
Some fonts will not work in PowerPoint. Microsoft keeps its own cache of Fonts on your Windows computer and not all may work on PowerPoint. You need to either add the font or change the font in your presentation.

To fix Some of your fonts cannot be saved with the presentation error message in PowerPoint, follow the solutions below.

1] Change the fonts to a basic font
The first solution is to use basic fonts such as Ariel, Times New Romans, Helvetica, and Calibri, due to all operating systems being able to read these fonts because of their readability and effectiveness.
