How to apply Styles to Slides in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013
When we talk about applying styles to slides – it can be one of several things.
- The style of the whole presentation
- The style of a shape
- The style of text
So here is a quick overview of how to change each of these styles.
Change the style of the whole presentation
Apply a design theme – this will change the whole presentation and give it a new look.
Notice in the picture below, I have hovered over the Ion Boardroom design, PowerPoint shows me what it will look like. To confirm, click on the design and it will be applied throughout. You can choose one of the variants of the design theme from the variants group.

Change the style of a shape
To change the style of a shape, first click on the shape you want to style
Then select one of the pre-set styles from the Format Shape Ribbon
Figure – shape styles
Change the style of text
This is general formatting or you can change normal text into Word Art.
Select the text you want to style
From the Format Drawing Tools Ribbon select the Text Style you want to apply
Figure – text styles
The text will now appear with the style you chose
