Layout and font management is a Lovecraftian Nightmare.
By , for WP 3.9.1

Generated slideshows will not use global custom fonts, and generator fonts don’t show up outside generated slideshows. This means if you want to tweak a generated slideshow with a custom layout you made OUTSIDE a generated slideshow, any custom fonts you’ve used will not show up until you’ve reset the slideshow with global font settings. But this means all generator fonts you’re still using will be COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY and you’ll have to re-do everything.

It took me ages to figure all this out because the interface is more convoluted than Dwarf Fortress and incredibly slow.

Also, importing/exporting font settings doesn’t work AT ALL. And don’t tell me I have to upgrade to the paid version to make that work, because getting that right should be at the very core of your app. Besides, with the amount of man-hours I've wasted re-doing over a hundred slides, you probably owe ME money.

If I could find another slideshow plug-in that generates decent touch interface slideshows, I'd drop this unwieldy beast in a heartbeat.

Yet fixing this could be simple, if only custom global fonts showed up in generated slideshows. That’s all that needs to be done.

Surely an awesome plugin but you can't use it in free version because picture item is blocked.
Sorry but I don't like to waste my time don't give a free version if we can't do a slideshow with it.
I will recommend it to my client but not to my friend.
