changing font after project is ready

Apr 19, 2011

I made up my mind about the font I used to create my project but I do not find a way to change it in all the slides without having to change slide by slide. Any help out there? Thanks!

Not so sure about this solution as this may increase of reduce the font size as per the standards set by MS Office. However u can give it a try.

For Office 2007:

Step 1: Click: View -> Slide Master.

Step 2: When in Slide master, look for  'EDIT THEME' group, click: font , and a number of predefined font layouts will roll out. Select the font layout of your choice.

If the desired font is *not* there, then u need to create a font theme.

U can do so by following the steps discussed above and then clicking on the option "create new theme fonts..."

Hope u find this useful

Hello Everyone, I know this string is old but I am having a similar issue.  In Storyline 360, I exported an English course, all of which was in one font.  When I imported the translated document the font changed to many types of fonts. It went from Segoe to Calibri, MS Gothic and Simsun. I need it all to be one again. Is there a way to change the project at once? The creating a theme and applying to all slides didn't work.

Hi Ashley, 

That was one of my suspicions, so I went back to the translation document and sure enough my export was Segoe UI and the translation company used Calibri. Thinking this was a great way to fix it all at once, I tried to change the column back to Segoe, but it doesn't allow it. When I go off and come back it changes it to Gothic. Now I know the 3 fonts are similar, especially in Japanese which is what I am working for this one, but the customer is strict in it's branding. Am I doing something wrong that it won't change? Any suggestions?

At this point I'm looking at 15 courses 3 different languages, 1 slide at a time.

Thank you

Hi Sally,

If changes aren't happening in your Word document, I'd also want to make sure you're following the guidelines here to prevent odd behavior as a whole in Storyline and the associated files. 

Also, do you have the Japanese character set for those fonts installed? If not, that could also cause issues with how they're displayed.
