Apply, Customize, and Save a Document Theme in Word or Excel
One can quickly and easily format an entire document to give it a professional and modern look by applying a document theme. A document theme is a set of formatting choices that include a set of theme colors, a set of theme fonts (including heading and body text fonts), and a set of theme effects (including lines and fill effects). Programs such as Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint provide several predefined document themes, but one can also create their own by customizing and then saving an existing document theme. Document themes are shared across Office programs so that all of the Office documents can have the same, uniform look. However, unlike Word and Excel, PowerPoint includes background style customization options.
