Use multiple themes in one presentation

When you want your presentation to have more than one set of colors, fonts, and effects (like shadows, reflections, glows, and more), add another slide master with a different theme.

Your presentation currently has one slide master with a theme applied. To add a second theme, add another slide master with a different theme. Here's how:

  1. On the View tab, pick Slide Master.

    shows the slide master button on the ribbon in PowerPoint

  2. On the Slide Master tab, pick Insert Slide Master.

    Tip   The second slide master inserts and is automatically selected.

  3. On the Slide Master tab, pick Themes, and pick a theme from the list.

    Shows Slide Master Themes options in PowerPoint

    The Slide Master you've added will now have a different theme from the other Slide Master in your presentation.
