There is a font called Chalkboard SE on the iPhone/iPad Keynote app but in the Work Desktop app the font is only called Chalkboard not with the SE on the end.

Once I transfer my presentation to the iPhone it say the font is missing (the Chalkboard one I used on my desktop) and it replacces it with Chalkduster although the iPad app have Chalkboard SE - that is the same as just Chalkboard.

I can't go and change all the fonts to SE on the iPhone (to small of a work space) I will change the fonts to SE if I can just get it on the Keynote desktop app.


I have looked ALL over for the font but NO luck


Please advice or help anyone.



iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1, iPhone Keynote app

    A year later and this is still a problem.  And as I see it, there are two simple solutions: 1) fix the font substitution on the iOS Keynote; 2) give us Chalkboard SE for OSX Keynote.


    So far, they have done neither.  Does it really take a year to figure this out?!

    When / if Apple will be able to sort this is beyond the users ability, but the workflow is clear:



    transferring any project file between different Macs or iOS devices that depend on fonts, the user must ensure the same font is available on both machines.

    Chalkboard SE is an Apple designed font and is only available for the Mac as part of Mountain Lion.


    Chalkboard and Chalkboard SE are different fonts and therefore wont be automatically substituted with each other.
