I'm creating a presentation with my MacBook Pro and Keynote.

I'm using the theme Blackboard which uses the font Chalkboard. When I import the presentation on my iPad Mini via iCloud the default font becomes Chalkduster and the presentation is messed up.

I noticed that the font Chalkboard is present in the iPad, however it would take a lot to change all the text fonts manually.

Why does the iPad Keynote change the font? Is there a way to prevent it?

Actually my problem was that Blackboard on OSx uses Chalkboard while on iOS use Chalkboard SE.

So I had to change all the fonts form Chalkboard to Chalkboard SE.
