I was recently editing a PowerPoint presentation that someone else had created. Master slides were not used and the formatting was a bit inconsistent. I thought to myself that it would be helpful to see a list of fonts used in the presentation. Then I remembered that there is such a list! It's a bit of a hidden feature so I had completely forgotten it existed. Here's how to see a list of fonts used in a presentation.
- In PowerPoint, choose File > Info.
- At the far right of the screen you will see a small preview image of the presentation. Directly below the preview, click the arrow next to Properties to view a drop-down menu. (What a sneaky little hidden menu!)
- Choose Advanced Properties to open the Properties dialog box.
- Click the Contents tab to view all the fonts used in the presentation.
