PowerPoint color schemes

By gralfus ·
I have a finished presentation, I edit the color scheme and apply it and only the background changes for the slides. None of the text color changes at all, even though I have clearly set the text and title colors differently. What gives?

Have you tried selecting all of the text in the presentation? I think that you will have to click at the beginning of the presentation and while holding the left mouse button drag to the end of the presentation. Go to Format, Font and choose Colors from the pull down arrow (I am using Power Point XP, 2003 should be the same, 97 is missing a lot of the features these other two have, so it may or may not work in that version).

Hello,

Did you make your changes on the individual slide or the SlideMaster - you need to use the Slide Master.

Hi,

You'll need to reapply the formatting to all your slides. As the other person pointed out, it's best to make changes to the slide master by clicking on View, Master, Slide Master. However, if you've made changes on the individual slides, these changes will take preference over the slide master settings (including color schemes). To apply standard changes to multiple slides, click on view, slide sorter, hold down the control key and click on each slide you want to select, click on format, slide layout and choose the appropriate layout for your slides. This will reapply the default master settings to your slides.

Thanks everyone! Unfortunately my client had already gone trough each slide individually and did the changes manually. I appreciate your help, though.
