Memory card problems
If the incorrect fonts are displayed in a PowerPoint presentation:
To embed PowerPoint fonts on a memory card, you must use a computer with HP
Wireless Presenter-to-Go software (see “To prepare your computer” on page 39).
❏
If you are presenting a PowerPoint PPT file, be sure the required
fonts are embedded on the memory card (see “To prepare a
PowerPoint presentation” on page 39).
❏
If you see a Presenter-to-Go message indicating a font cannot be
embedded, edit the PowerPoint file and replace the restricted font
with a different font. In PowerPoint, you can click Format >
Replace Fonts and make sure all fonts are TrueType fonts. Then
be sure the new font is embedded on the memory card.
❏
If the PowerPoint file contains an embedded font not installed on
your computer, this font cannot be embedded on the memory
card. If possible, change the font in the PowerPoint file, then be
sure the new font is embedded on the memory card.
❏
If the FONTS folder on the memory card has been deleted, no
fonts are available for PPT presentations. Right-click each PPT
file on the card and select Embed Fonts.
❏
As an alternative to showing a PowerPoint PPT file, you can show
a mobile presentation PDB file, which contains all necessary font
information (see “To create mobile presentations” on page 40).

Fixing the System
❏
If you are presenting a PowerPoint PPT file, a slide may not
display completely if it requires too much memory. To reduce the
size of graphics on slides, right-click any graphic, select Format
Picture, then click Compress, and select the option for all
pictures and the option to delete cropped areas.
❏
An alternative to showing a PowerPoint PPT file is showing a
mobile presentation PDB file, which supports other formats and
elements and requires less memory to display (see “To create
mobile presentations” on page 40).
If PowerPoint special effects do not work:
❏
Some special effects are not supported, including sound effects.
❏
