Design Styles in Sway

Learn how to change Design Styles in Microsoft Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway

OS: Works in a browser, or as an app

Once you access the Design pane in Sway, you will be presented with a bewildering array of Design Styles that can change the appearance of your Sway. In Figure 1, you can see how our original Sway looks like.

Follow these steps to proceed:

  1. Open an existing Sway, or create a new one. Then access the Design pane, as explained in our Designs in Sway tutorial.
  2. You will see several prebuilt Styles, represented as square thumbnails (see area highlighted in red within Figure 2, below).
