Part 4. Working with PowerPoint Text > Changing the Text Color

Changing the Text Color

Select the text or text box you want to format.

Click the Font Color button on the Formatting toolbar.

PowerPoint displays a menu of color options that coordinate with your current slide design. Click the color you want to apply.

If you do not see a color you like, click More Colors.

INTRODUCTION

As you work with different slide designs, you might need to change the color of slide text to make it more legible against the background, or you might want to use color to emphasize a word or line of text. You can change text color quickly using the Font Color button on the Formatting toolbar.


TIP

Understanding Color Schemes

The colors that appear on the Font Color menu are coordinated with the slide design's color scheme. You'll learn more about changing slide designs and color schemes in Part 6, “Changing the Appearance of Slides.”


The Colors dialog box opens. Click a color.

Click OK.

PowerPoint applies the color.
