Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Office themes: The basics, part of Data-Driven Presentations with Excel and PowerPoint 2016.
- [Instructor] Every Office document has a theme,…whether it is an Excel spreadsheet like this,…a Word document, a PowerPoint presentation,…or even a Microsoft Outlook email message.…The theme in this document is called depth.…And if I didn't know that already,…I could go to page layout,…hover over the themes button…and read the name of the current theme.…A theme has three attributes:…it has a color palette,…in this case notice mostly blues and greens,…a pair of fonts, and in Word, for example,…one of those fonts is for headings…and the other is used for body style.…
The same is true in PowerPoint.…In Excel, we're typically simply using the body font.…And then we have effects that are applied…to a graphic object like a chart…or an image or even word art.…When I copy information from Excel…or any other Office application and I paste it,…an interesting thing happens when I paste.…Let me show you.…I'm going to select this chart and copy it,…Control + C, open a new blank workbook.…Just to check here, the default theme is Office theme.…
