FontAwesome Icons in PowerPoint

Do you search for hours trying to find the perfect icon to fit your presentation? It can be overwhelming sorting through them all. When you finally find one you like it isn’t in a format that works in PowerPoint. What if I told you there is a regular updating icon set that can be used by just simply installing a font? Introducing FontAwesome.

FontAwesome is an always growing font icon pack that gives you access to over 650+ icons by just copying and pasting the icon you want. While these icons are mainly used in web development and implementation, there’s nothing saying you can’t use them in your presentation. Let’s look at how to install them to your computer and start using them in your presentations.

1. Download FontAwesome to Your Computer

First of all, you need to download and install the font. Head over to http://fontawesome.io and hit the green download link on the front page. Download the zip file and extract the contents to your computer.

Step 1: Download FontAwesome Font

2. Installing FontAwesome

Head into the newly extracted folder and navigate to the fonts folder. You should see a couple of different files in the folder. We are looking for the one that simply says FontAwesome. Right-click on it and select Install.

Step 2: Installing FontAwesome

 

The font is now installed on your computer and should be available in PowerPoint.

3. FontAwesome Cheatsheet

Now that the font is installed head over to the FontAwesome Cheatsheet and take a look at all the available icons. You are going to want to select an icon and copy it (CTRL+C/CMD+C).

Step 3: Using FontAwesome Cheatsheet

4. FontAwesome in PowerPoint

Create a new ‘Textbox’ in PowerPoint, right click and select ‘Keep Source Formatting’ (the middle option). You should now have the icon you copied in PowerPoint.

Step 4: Pasting in Icons

 

FontAwesome is a great resource to add to any presenters arsenal. With access to over 650+ icons including social network logos, biggest tech logos, UI symbols and more, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

    If I insert FontAwesome icons into a presentation, how can I be assured another person can see the icons when they open the file on their computer? I would assume they would not have the Font installed.
