Default PPT Charts randomly change font when automated


I have completed a 145 page automated PowerPoint presentation application. The presentation is completed successfully. In the presentation, there are sets of charts that are repeated for difference Item Manager sections.

I created the template with the desired font for the graph datasheet, legend, etc. Most of the sections use the same font that is in the template. However, a few sections randomly change the font on the chart, making the words and numbers overlap eachother. I have attached two images showing this difference.

Have any of you encountered this type of problem? Do you have a solution for it? Also, if you do not have a solution directly with this problem - do you know how to change the font programmatically so that I can make sure the font is successfully chosen?

One thing to note - if I open up the presentation and open the graph to edit it, when I close the graph it successfully reverts to the font that is used with the rest of the presentation.

Thank you for your help!

Hi Lkritchey,

This sounds like it is either a PowerPoint-related bug, or is perhaps a resources issue due to memory running low. I'm guessing that it's the former, but it's tough to say.

I don't think that there's enough PowerPoint experience to help you in this forum, unfortunately. I would suggest that you try asking your question at a forum that focuses on PowerPoint. You'll have a better chance at finding the right expertise there.

Here's a listing of some:

via Google: http://www.google.com/search?aq=f&so...werPoint+Forum

via Bing: http://www.bing.com/search?q=PowerPo...=n&sk=&sc=1-16

Hope this helps at least a little...

- Mike

Thanks for your reply! I will post on another forum specifically related to PPT. I tried to examine the memory issues in case it wasn't a PPT bug - but I honestly don't see anything that could be fixed with that.

Yeah, I tend to agree too that it's probably a PowerPoint-related bug. I wish we had more PPT here to help you with that, but hopefully you'll have some luck on the other sites that I listed above.

Good luck!
