Mac OS 10.8.4
AI CS5 15.02
Powerpoint 2008 12.3.6
The client designed boards in powerpoint to be output 9ft tall. Trying to convert to illustrator to get vector type and will have to go with what we can for images. Unfortunately everything I try give me type that looks like this (unicode problem I guess)
Have tried these methods to convert to .ai.
the .pdf looks good in acrobat, once I open in illustrator characters are as per screenshot. They are using various weights of Calibri.
I can get the font outlined by
ppt to .pdf >> open in acrobat > save as .eps
but then can't make their type edits as they come in, unless I go back to powerpoint and start from square 1
The Word versions of Calibri (especially the Calibri (Themebody)) don't translate to the Mac version. Try changing the font in the PP to Arial and then importing into AI. You can then try reapplying the mac version of the Calibri font.
