Change the fonts

You can change the fonts on a single slide, or you can change the fonts throughout your entire presentation. You can also change the heading and body fonts in the theme that is applied to your presentation.

Change the fonts on a single slide

  1. Do one of the following:

    • To change the font for a single paragraph or a phrase, select the text that you want to change.

    • To change the font for all the text in a placeholder, either select all the text in the placeholder, or click the placeholder.

  2. On the Home tab, in the Font group, select a font in the Font list.

Change the fonts throughout your presentation

If you are using one slide master, and you change a font on the slide master, the new font will appear throughout your presentation. If you are using multiple slide masters (for example, when you apply more than one template to your presentation), you must change the font style on each slide master.

  1. On the View tab, in the Presentation Views group, click Slide Master.

  2. In the left pane that contains the slide masters and layouts, click the slide master thumbnail or layout that contains the font that you want to change.

  3. On the slide master or layout, click the title text or the level of body text that you want to apply a new font style to.

    Tip   On a slide layout in the slide master, you can also change the default text that appears in a placeholder by creating custom prompt text.

  4. On the Slide Master tab, in the Edit Theme group, click Fonts, and then select a font from the list.

Repeat steps 1 through 4 for any other fonts that you want to change. To return to editing your slides, on the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View.
