A reader stated that she knew how to change the colors of the design theme. But, rather than do this each and every time she started a new presentation, she wondered if there was a way to save the new color scheme she had created?
Modify and Save PowerPoint 2007 Design Theme Colors
The simple answer is "Yes". You may like the style of a design theme in PowerPoint 2007, but it is not quite right for you. Rather than reinvent the wheel, you have the option to modify the colors of the design theme to suit your liking. Once you have made the changes, you can then save this "new" design theme to use again and again.
- Click on the Design tab of the ribbon.
- Click on the drop down arrow, to the right of the last design theme showing on the ribbon. Microsoft calls this the "More" button. (See the image above).
- Choose the option to Save Current Theme....
- Type a name for this new design theme in the file name box.
- Click the Save button.
The new design theme will be saved in the Document Themes folder and will be available for future presentations. You will see the theme located in the Custom section of the PowerPoint design themes when you want to apply it at a later date.
