  • Hi Mary, glad you find this slideshare useful. I still didn't find caouse of this problem, rotating is the only help so far. But I saw other people using the same fonts without this problem. Can be they are using other way of exporting? Are you using PowerPoint on Windows or something else?

  • Thank you for this slideshare! I will try rotating my text. I am bewildered as to why the tilted ones look better on your show. I'll let you know- THANKS!

  1. 1. The investigation file ;) Bad looking fonts when exporting to Slideshare? Aa
  2. 2. Ever experienced the issue with ugly pixelization in texts on your Slideshare presentation? I did. This is my little investigation file. I am testing here the look of several fonts, trying various export combinations. Maybe it will be useful also for you. @Peter_iDiagram

  13. 13. As direct text Rotated text Text saved as a picture(PNG) Font export combinations The standard way text is displayed on a slide. But this fails using export to Slideshare via PDF (generated by PowerPoint) I found out that rotating text helps sometimes. PowerPoint or PDF is apparently representing then text different way (as bitmap?). A trick to improve displaying texts in Slideshare. Requires some work - replacing every text by Cut & Paste as Image. Exporting procedure Save PowerPoint file as PDF file (recommended way to publish PPT slides, more secure as publishing PPT file). Upload PDF file to Slideshare Create slides in PowerPoint (I used MS Office 2013, Windows 7)

  15. 15. Noticed the problem? Lobster, Roverd, Myriad, Museo fonts are looking pretty bad, unless rotated. Why? Is that problem of Slideshare import? PDF export? If you know the reason, got a hint how to avoid this font display problem, I will be grateful for help. Peter
