Change the fonts

You can change the fonts on a single slide, or you can change the fonts throughout your presentation. And if you want to use fonts not available in PowerPoint, see Use decorative fonts from third-party vendors.

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’re using one slide master, and you change a font on the slide master, the new font will appear throughout your presentation.

If you’re 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 Master 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.

  4. On the Slide Master tab, in the Background 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.
