You can change the fonts (font: A graphic design applied to all numerals, symbols, and alphabetic characters. Also called type or typeface. Arial and Courier New are examples of fonts. Fonts usually come in different sizes, such as 10 point, and various styles, such as bold.) on a single slide, or you can change the fonts throughout your presentation. And if you want to use fonts not available in PowerPoint, see Use decorative fonts from third-party vendors.
Change the fonts on a single slide
On the Home tab, in the Font group, select a font in the Font list.
- Do one of the following:
Change the fonts throughout your presentation
If you’re using one slide master, and you change a font on the slide master, the new font will appear throughout your presentation.
If you’re using multiple slide masters (for example, when you apply more than one template (design template: A file that contains the styles in a presentation, including the type and size of bullets and fonts; placeholder sizes and positions; background design and fill color schemes; and a slide master and optional title master.) to your presentation), you must change the font style on each slide master.
- On the View tab, in the Master Views group, click Slide Master.
- In the left pane that contains the slide masters and layouts (layout: The arrangement of elements, such as title and subtitle text, lists, pictures, tables, charts, AutoShapes, and movies, on a slide.), click the slide master thumbnail or layout that contains the font that you want to change.
- On the slide master or layout, click the title text or the level of body text that you want to apply a new font style to.
- On the Slide Master tab, in the Background group, click Fonts, and then select a font from the list.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 for any other fonts that you want to change. To return to editing your slides, on the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View.
