[Tex/LaTex] The same font as latex for PowerPoint

powerpoint

I'm using PowerPoint to make some figures for latex. The font in the figures is not compatible with the one in latex though. How can I have the same font as latex (either in texts or formula) in PowerPoint?

Thanks in advance!

The default font of LaTeX is Computer Modern which is only available as bitmap fonts. However, there are a few clones which resemble it very closely in OpenType format:

  1. Latin Modern

  2. Computer Modern Unicode

    Despite the name this does not provide the exact same shapes as the original Computer Modern.

In both cases, go to the download page and select the OTF files. Then follow Microsoft's instructions to add the fonts to your system: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-a-font-b7c5f17c-4426-4b53-967f-455339c564c1
