In this office tip we will show you how to create your own master color scheme in PowerPoint. This makes it possible to create your own standardized font color, background color, colors of tables and diagrams as well as the color of links. Master colors are limited to only 12 colors, so we also show you the possibility of creating custom colors. Custom colors allow you to expand your color palette. You can give colors a name and a sequence.
The first color corresponds to the first font color. This often occurs on a light background thats why it we recommend to select a dark color. The second color corresponds to a second, rather light font color. The third color corresponds to a first background color. We recommend choosing a rather dark color. The fourth color corresponds to a second background. Usually this one is rather light. Accent colors 1-6 correspond to the colors of charts and tables that you can insert into your presentation.
The last two colors correspond to the colors of inserted hyperlinks. You can also set the color of already visited hyperlinks manually.
Do not forget to save! Your presentation is now individualized. Anyone who works with the master you have created can now access the color design.
If you want to adjust the colors later, you have to click on "Customize colors ..." again. Also note that if you distribute this master to colleagues, the name of the color palette (which you may have assigned) will not appear on their PCs.
If these colors are not enough for you, you can also add custom colors.
You already have fixed colors and would like to supplement your newly created color concept? The following steps show you how to install custom colors in your PowerPoint.
The custom colors are now created in your color scheme.
