    Finding Font (XP)

    I am saving a presentation with the TT fonts included. Every time, it gives me a message saying I cannot install CG Tmes because I don't have it installed on my computer. Fair enough but this endless error message popping up every single time I save, and I save a lot, is driving me nuts. I went on a CG Times hunt and could not find anyplace it was used. (I'm converting slides someone else created; otherwise, CG Times could never have been used since I don't have it.) Word lets you search for formatting but I cannot find any way to do it in PP. Any suggestions?

    Is it used anywhere in the slide master(s)?

    Have you tried going to the Format menu and choose Replace Fonts? Try replacing the CGTimes font.

    Thanks Catharine, that worked. I looked all in the Edit menu, expecting to find it there, since that is how it works in Word. I also tried the help for about fifteen minutes without success.
