Product/Version: PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 and higher






Theme Fonts comprise a pair of font choices, one each for your slide titles (Heading font) and the other for everything else on your slides (Body font). You can use existing Theme Fonts available in PowerPoint or even create them on your own. Additionally, you can opt to edit existing Theme Font pairs (sets), as we will explore in this tutorial.

Note: It is highly recommended that you only edit Theme Font sets that you may have created or downloaded, and not edit the ones that are built-in within PowerPoint.

Follow these steps to edit existing Theme Fonts:

  1. Launch PowerPoint 2016. Navigate to the Design tab of the Ribbon, and within the Variants group, click the More button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
  2. More button
    Figure 1: More button
  3. This brings up the Variants drop-down gallery, as shown in Figure 2. Within the Variants drop-down gallery, choose the Fonts option to open a sub-gallery (refer to Figure 2 again). Within the Fonts sub-gallery, right-click on the Theme Font that you want to edit, as shown in Figure 2. This brings up a contextual menu -- within this contextual menu, select the Edit option (refer to Figure 2 again).
  4. Edit option

  5. Note: Do you see the Delete option in the contextual menu shown in Figure 2? Clicking this option will remove selected the Theme Font altogether. This action cannot be undone; so be careful before choosing the Delete option.
    Tip: If you use Theme Colors and Theme Fonts options often, consider customizing your Ribbon to add them in a more accessible location -- or you could even add them to your Quick Access Toolbar (QAT).
  6. This will bring up the Edit Theme Fonts dialog box, as shown in Figure 3.
  7. Edit Theme Fonts dialog box

  8. Using the options within the Edit Theme Fonts dialog box, you can change the Heading font, the Body font, and also the name of the selected Theme Font.
  9. To change the body font, click the down-arrow within the Body font box, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 4 This action will open a drop-down gallery with all fonts installed on your system. Just click on the font of your choice. In Figure 4 you can see Garamond is selected.
  10. New Body font being selected

  11. Similarly you can change the Heading font as well, but we are leaving it unchanged. The fonts you change show within the Sample section, as shown in Figure 5. Once you are happy with the changes, click the Save button.
  12. Changes made to the Theme Font

  13. This will save the changes to the selected Theme Font, and also apply it to the active presentation, as can be seen in Figure 6.
  14. Theme Font edited and applied to the active presentation

While you can make these changes within PowerPoint and also similarly in Word and Excel, you can also make more changes by editing the XML files that contain the Theme Fonts themselves, as explained in our Create Custom Theme Fonts Using XML (Windows) tutorial.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
