We do have some extensive content on what Unicode encoded fonts are, and how the remaining ASCII encoded fonts are of two types: single-byte and double-byte. However, our readers want more info, as can be understood from these questions we received:
If you just could tell me which fonts in Microsoft Windows are double-byte, I’ll know which ones I can manually replace or not use in the first place in PowerPoint, please?
I have to replace a double-byte font in my PowerPoint file, but I don’t know which ones they are. All those I choose, such as Comic Sans, Arial, etc. refuse to replace double-byte fonts. So can you please tell me the names of all double-byte fonts in PowerPoint?
Yes, we feel your pain, and will provide a list of double-byte fonts we see in our systems. However, if you see more double-byte fonts, do comment below and we will update this list.
Here’s a list of common double-byte fonts:
- DengXian Light
- Microsoft YaHei
- Microsoft YaHei Light
- Microsoft YaHei UI
- Microsoft YaHei UI Light
Anytime, you see these fonts used in your presentation, you’ll know that a double-byte font has been used.
