There are several different ways you can change the font on all of your slides in a presentation in PowerPoint. I’m going to cover two different ways of doing it here.
Using the Replace Function
To change the font on all of your slides in a presentation in PowerPoint,
- Open your presentation
- Click on the Home Tab
- Within the Editing Group, click on the drop-down arrow next to Replace and choose Replace Fonts
- In the Replace: box, click on the drop-down arrow and select the font you want to replace
- In the With: box, select the new font that you want used in your presentation
- Click on Replace
- Click Close
- The font will have been replaced with your new choice throughout your presentation 🙂
Using Master Slides
A Master Slide works like a template for your presentation – the Master Slide defines the theme, layout, colours, fonts, backgrounds etc for your presentation. The default design template for a PowerPoint presentation is a plain, white slide. So, every time you create a new slide, a new blank white slide is inserted into your presentation. This blank slide and the font style and sizes for the text placeholders used on it, are all defined in the Slide Master. All slides in a presentation are created using the fonts, colours and graphics defined in the Slide Master.
Using the Slide Master can be an easy way to change the look of an existing presentation or make changes to all of the slides in your presentation. In this case, we are going to use the Master Slide to change the font to a different one, throughout the presentation.
- Click on the View Tab
- In the Master Views Group, choose Slide Master
Either on the Slide Master tab, click the Fonts drop-down menu and select the set of fonts that you want to use for all the slides in the presentation (this will change headings, subheadings and body text)…
Or select the individual part that you want to change (e.g. the Title Style). Then click on the Home Tab, and change the font for the individual elements of your Master Slides (e.g. Title Style, Subtitle Style, Bullet Style)
- When you have changed the font, click on the Slide Master Tab (you may not have to do this) then, click Close Master View
- Your presentation will automatically update to the new font
