What do you do if a 2007 PowerPoint is not compatible with 2003 PowerPoint because of the text in it? Topic: Long computer case screws
June 20, 2019 / By Ghislaine
Question: I have done a project on PowerPoint 2007, but my school has 2003 PowerPoint and i need to present tomorrow. when I went to save it as compatible, it said on every slide that the text was a problem. Now i tried 15 different fonts and no luck. what do i do so then it will work at school? meddhatt what the hell are you saying? Oh and also i used a program off the internet so you-tube videos can be viewed in the PowerPoint when presenting it. Will that still work in 2003. there is no problems appearing but i have worked hard on this and don't want it to screw up.

That warning isn't about the font. It's about the effects you used on the text. Read carefully - it should tell you that it will save it down to 2003, but that the text will no longer be editable. Or you may have used more than 5 levels of indents - something 2003 cannot handle. Also note that there is a help button in the compatibility checker and it will give you more details. Fonts are not 2003 / 2007 - they are whatever you have loaded on your computer. However, be careful, because if they remain fonts and you don't have the same fonts on the computer at your school, they will not show up. You can copy and paste the fonts from your fonts folder onto your USB drive (or however you are transporting the file) and install them on the school computer. Or you could embed them. Or better yet, embed them and bring them along just in case.

I would open up the document on a school computer to check because even though it says there are issues with your text, it might look just fine anyways.

Please edit with the exact wording of the message. I can think of about 20 different errors having to do with "text" and have no clue which one you are getting.
