Hi there,

I have a Windows XP Professional SP2 on an HP Elitebook 8440p.
 
I have full featured version of MS Office 2003 installed in my system.
 
The operating system is a 32-bit version of Windows.
 
I have been trying to open a PowerPoint presentation send by my cousin but it displays the below mentioned error.
 
 
 
This presentation cannot be edited because it contains read-only embedded font
 
Is anyone aware of what's happening here?

For Power-point 2003:

This problem can be solved by Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 2. So get it.

For Power-point 2002: (before the service pack 3)

On the presentation menu click File > Save as >, Click on tools > Save options > uncheck the box Embed TrueType Fonts > Click Ok, > Write a new name or use the present name of the presentation for the File Name box > Click Save.

For Power-point 2000 and 97:

On the presentation menu click File > Save as > uncheck the box Embed TrueType Fonts > Use the present name or a new name for the File Name box > Click Save.
