How to Change the Font on Every Powerpoint 2010 Slide – How to Make Changes to Every Slide in Powerpoint 2010

November 24, 2010DavidPowerpoint0

Powerpoint 2010 comes with some great themes, but sometimes you want to customize a PowerPoint theme ever so slightly.  Often you don’t realize that you want to make a change until you’ve completed 100 slides.  Do not fear — you generally do not need to make the change on every slide.  PowerPoint comes with a feature called the “Master Slide”.  A PowerPoint Master Slide is simply a template slide for each type of slide in your presentation.  In this tutorial I will show you how to easily and quickly change the font on every content slide in a PowerPoint presentation.  Note that in the presentation I’m using in my example, I have one slide layout for the home or main slide (that I won’t be changing) and a second slide layout for all of the content slides (which I will be changing).

1. Navigate to the slide master template by going to View and then to Slide Master:


2. Select Slide Master:


3. The Master Slide will appear.  Note that on the left-side column you should see a list of the type of slide layouts that are in your presentation.  Click on the layout that you need in order to see that Master Slide.  In the example below I selected the main content slide layout for my presentation.


4. I wanted to change each line individually so I highlighted the text line individually, and then right-clicked to get the fonts options.  I then selected the new font that I wanted:


5. Make all of the changes that you want and then click Close Master View in the toolbar (it’s a big red box with a white “x” in it).  You should see your changes applied immediately.
