In Powerpoint 2003 how do i change all of the titles?

Posted on March 26, 2009. Filed under: Powerpoint Tips |

I need to change the font size. I have gone to view,master and slide master but it does not work.
Where am i going wrong?

Unless you typed your titles into the outline or the Click Here box, they will NOT be in the Master. If they are in the Master and it isn’t changing, you could select all your slides and re-apply the Layout(s). Just be aware, that if you did any other tweaks/customizations to elements that are part of the Master, those will also reset.

If you end up having to set the type size slide-by-slide, there are a few things that can make it easier…

Go into the Tools pulldown menu –> Customize –> Commands and grab the eyedropper – pick up and apply. Then use the tool to pick up the right size text, go to the next slide, select the title text and use the apply dropper.

Or you can use the Format Painter, which I think shows up as a default in the PowerPoint toolbar. The trick is to select the text at the right size, then DOUBLE click on the format painter and go to the next slide and just click on the text box and the format will change. You need to double click on the format painter when you are done to turn it off.

The above 2 work great as long as you want all the formatting the same. But let’s say you have 12 different color titles in 6 different fonts and all you want to do is change them all from 32 point type to 36. Select the first piece of type, change the size to 36. Then go to the next piece and hit Ctrl+Y on the keyboard. That’s the redo command, so essentially it re-does whatever you did last – so it will just change the type size since that’s the last thing you did.
