Should you use stylized fonts in your professional PowerPoint presentations? The answer is NO. Avoid unnecessary font decoration gimmicks such as glows and drop-shadows as this leads to decreased readability. If you need to emphasize words or phrases, make them bold. Don’t underline, bold and italicize text all at once – choose one style go with it. Use these attributes sparingly or their effect will be lost. Also, it’s best to avoid italics in PowerPoint presentations as italicized text, like script fonts are hard to read. Always Keep Font Stylization to a Minimum in PowerPoint Presentations.
