Change the default font in a template

Templates are used by most presenters. Most of us use the default templates available in MS PowerPoint. There are 40 templates in MS PowerPoint 2010. If you are slightly more interested, you might have used free templates from If you are in love with templates then you must have downloaded it from various websites (and wasted a lot of time as well).

Every template has a default font. When you insert a text box on a slide, you are forced to use the default font. I find this very annoying because the template might be cool and awesome but the default font might not be so great.

How do you change the default font of a template?


  1. You can change the default font by going to Slide Master (the template configuration) and then choose the layout where you want to change the font. On this layout select the new font and then every time you create a new slide using this layout the new font will be used instead of default font.

    Yes. That's right. We just need to go to View -> Slide Master -> Under Edit Theme on top -> Fonts -> Choose the font you want to set as the default font.
