Attach an example file demonstrating the problem.
Make a file copy, remove all slides except one or two showing the font problem and replace any confidential text with dummy text.

Highlight the text and set it back to 30 point.

See [Tutorial] Differences between Writer and MS Word files to set your expectations properly.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 10 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
