Design Styles in Microsoft 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).

  4. You will typically see 6 Style families. Each Style family has several variants, and you can see a few variants for each Style. To see even more variants, click the Arrow icons highlighted in blue within Figure 2 above. This will reveal more Style variants, as shown in Figure 3, below.
  5. More Style variants
