Change and Replace Text Fonts: MS PowerPoint

Dennis Faas's picture

When you want to make two or more changes to font characteristics at the same time, or to change a bit of text or a character in some specialized way, the Font dialog box in MS PowerPoint is the best place to go.

The dialog box not only gives you most control over the formatting process but you also have access to commands, such as Subscript or Emboss, that are not available on the toolbar. Clearly, it's also more efficient to change several attributes at one time.

To access the Font format dialog box in PowerPoint, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the text or slide that you want to format.
  2. Choose Format | Font or press Ctrl + T. This opens the dialog box.
  3. Select all the text features that you would like to apply to your text.
  4. Click OK.

The dialog box closes and you can see the front modifications that you have selected. Because you performed these changes in one operation, if you choose to select Undo, all will be reversed.
