  2. Reboot your Vibe board.
  3. Import the custom font files into Vibe's internal storage.
    Copy your font files (OTF, TTF files supported) to a USB drive, and plug it into the Vibe board. Open the 'Explorer' app, and navigate to your USB folder. Long press the font file, copy it, and go to the Internal Memory folder. Tap on 'Editor' in the upper-right corner and paste the font file.
  4. Install the custom font in Microsoft PowerPoint.
    Go to Settings - Experimental - Microsoft PowerPoint.
