Do you limit the number of fonts?

Each font or style (italics or bold) should be used consistently throughout your presentation. While a different font face or color is a simple way of highlighting certain terms you want for focus, too much of it will do exactly the opposite and distract the audience.
The rules are:
- Use one font per presentation
- Use one style (eg. bold or color) per slide if possible
- Steer clear of excessively bright colors or any flourished type face (both are hard to read)
- Figure: Bad Example - 2 fonts are used, 2 styles are used, and flourished type face used. This all makes your slide hard to read for the audience
- Figure: Better Example - Even though there are a lot of words, the main ones are clear because there is only one font used, with color to emphasize
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
