I would only add that, after changing the font in the styles, you may also have to clear any direct formatting that you may have previously applied on a given slide or slides. Highlight the text on the slide and click on "Format > Clear Direct Formatting". This will then apply the style-controlled font to the selected text. *Caution:* It will also eliminate any other specific formatting that you had previously applied, such as boldface, italics, color, etc. It will get you back to the original font of the style used in the master slide for the presentation.

But, based on my earlier experimentation, I don't think just changing the font will fix your problem. I created a slide presentation using Metropolis as you describe and converted it to PDF and sent it to both my Android phone and Apple iPad. On the Android, the PDF everything displayed fine. On the iPad, I got missing text and text cutoff as you described. I then changed the font on the Metropolis theme to a font I knew worked on the iPad in other situations and I got the same results (missing text and text lines cutoff). I'm convinced your problem is with the Metropolis theme itself. If I were you, I would select a different master slide theme and right click on it and then click "apply to all slides" and see if that helps.

No. On the right of the Impress window click the styles and formatting icon. Click the style you used for the test and right click modify. On the font tab change the font to the one you want to use.

So, on any particular slide, I go to format/style and change the font.
 It doesn't seem to do anything?

I just did a quick test, if you modify the style(s) you used and change
the font there it will change your presentation.

I guess my question is, in that case, how would you easily change the
font for a 50 page presentation?

Shot in the dark.

You can probably assume those fonts that currently work on Iphone with
Metropolis are available by default.

Find out the fonts that aren't working and substitute with other default
fonts that are used on Iphone.

Use only those font inside Metropolis.

Hope this helps.

Seem to have the same result :(

I wonder if I just have to ditch metropolis?

I made a presentation with impress, used Metropolis theme.

I then exported it as PDF.

The problem is, some, when opening on such things as iphones, get the
text cut off, like the top part of the text is not showing, etc.

Others, until they turn the phone sideways, it doesn't display the text

How do I make sure the text looks correct for all, or at least most,
users on different devices?
Note an expert, but something you might try.
Open file, and go to File/Properties/Fonts
There are two check boxes for embedding fonts.
Don't know if either or both would make a difference.
Might be some font that you used isn't included on these
devices and they are using a different font that throws
everything off?
Not sure why this isn't listed under the PDF options as a
Had a spreadsheet I exported that had this issue with
some fonts, and believe this fixed it? But it was long ago..
Worth a try. Worst thing, it makes no difference. File will
be bigger since fonts will be included.
