It seems there may be an issue with font conversion to HTML5 between TrueType fonts and OpenType fonts. We initially started with a "common" cross-platform font Arial, which was a TrueType font. All work well. A later desire moved us to include a font with more character. Tried using Myriad-Pro Condensed OpenType font on Windows 8, PowerPoint 2013. For some reason, the font is consistently substituted to a serif font. Used Fontographer to convert the OpenType font to TrueType font and iSpring Converter did use and convert the font correctly except for watermarks appearing in some of the characters. These likely came from Fontographer, but I suspect there is a licensing issue where neither Fontographer nor iSpring have permissions to convert the Adobe font directly. In general, what type of fonts are most supported and are there licensing issues for some font foundries like Adobe?

Thank you for your post!

We need to make a research to find out if there is anything wrong with the conversion of these fonts. Could you please send us the original PowerPoint presentation, the mentioned font files and the converted HTML5 presentation which demonstrates the issue? Our support email address is

Also it would be very helpful if you let me know the full version and the build number of your iSpring Pro.
