“Someone attending the webinar had a question about embedding PowerPoint presentations in a web page. It was working in one environment, but not in another. There might be a problem with how iframes are supported on the page where you're doing the embedding, since that's what the "embed" code is.
For those not aware of this feature, it's a way to put your presentation in its own frame on your web page or blog. Instead of linking to the file, you can let your readers run the slide show right there on your web page. How-to steps are here:
“A webinar guest was wondering about font support in Office Online. Here's the scoop:
In the Word Online viewer (Reading view), fonts need to be either embedded in the doc or installed on the server in order to display text properly.
In Office Online editors (Editing View) - at least for OneNote and Word, not sure about the other 2... You can use any font that's installed locally on your computer as long as you spell its name correctly in the Font box (In other words, Office Online doesn't "know" about the font to display its name in the list of fonts, but it can fetch it if you call it by name).
Similarly, if you open a document that is supposed to use a font that is NOT installed on your computer, you'll see the font's name in the list, but there will be no way to render it in the editor, and Word Online will fall back to using some other font to display the text.”
“A webinar guest on the chat was asking about creating documents in Office Online based on custom templates -- all in SharePoint Online, or the Office 365 for Business environment. You can do this, though it's a bit complicated to set up. You can have a library for each type of template, or you can set up multiple content types for a library. You set up your templates, and then end-users can go to File > New, and pick the template. If they don't have Office installed locally, the template opens in the Office Online program, to edit in the browser.

At this point in the holiday season if you’re like me, you’re over budget. Yesterday I started worrying about that cashmere sweater I bought for one sister-in-law and the sweatshirt I bought for the other. It’s back to shoping this evening to try to even it out. This time when I’m wandering the aisles, I’ll check my Excel holiday budget on my phone. I saved it on SkyDrive—Microsoft’s free cloud service—so…
