    As a regular thing, I load my working model of a PowerPoint 2010 presi onto my PlayBook...and then open it using same on the PowerBook..

    However, as the font that I used - and is installed on my desktop - is not present the font defaults to Courier.

    How can I "load" the fonts, which I have of course, "into" the PlayBook to see the proper looking slides?



    PS this is prob easy, but I cannot find out how to do that?

    You don't need to load the fonts into the Playbook.

    You just have to embed the specific font into your PowerPoint files (or Word files).

    Wow. I didn't think this would work when viewing PPT files on PlayBook. Thanks for the tip. I thought it was a DocsToGo limitation.

    I hope JV does not resent my asking a powerpoint but unrelated question since the original one was answered. My question was inspired by this one in that I have rarely ever opened Powerpoint on my computer.

    To the question: I was making a slideshow for the pb. I wanted to zoom in on a portion of a photo and tried using the cropping tool. But what I wound up with was only the portion of the image but with the area that was cropped, replaced by a white border. I was hoping to basically zoom in what was left after the crop and not just have a smaller image in the full-size slide. I may be missing it but did not see any zoom or stretch or similar to just enlarge the center of my photo(s). It was of a wildflower but I wanted it larger in the slide.

    Thanks in advance (and I did do a google search but only saw cropping but not what I needed).
