I want to create a powerpoint template style for colleagues to create presentations, how do I lock fonts and colours so they always retain the same style?

For more information, make sure to check out our public speaking class London.

RE: Powerpoint

Hi Caspar,

Thank you for the forum question.

Unfortunately this cannot be done in PowerPoint. You can setup the fonts, styles and colours in the master but you cannot lock it.

We can do it in Word but not in PowerPoint.

Kind regards

PowerPoint tip:

Change the Print button so it brings up the Print dialogue box

If you want to bring up the Print dialogue box to check your print settings when you hit the Print button, do the following:

1. Right-click on the toolbar that displays the Print button.

2. Select Customise.

3. Click on the Print button on the toolbar to select it, then hold the left mouse button down and drag the button towards the screen below. The button should come off the toolbar.

4. In the Customise dialogue box on your screen, select the Commands tab.

5. Select File from the Categories list, and then locate the Print... icon (looks like the normal Print button, but the word Print has three dots following it).

6. Click on the Print... icon to select it, then use your left mouse to drag and drop the icon onto the toolbar at the top of the screen.

7. Close the Customise dialogue box.
