Quickly customize your quiz just by changing the theme fonts. Theme fonts control headings, body text, and the text used for quiz questions and answer choices. Apply any of Articulate Quizmaker's built-in theme fonts, or create your own.

Each set of theme fonts consists of a heading font and a body font.

  • The Heading font is used for question text on question slides and for titles on blank slides.
  • The Body font is used for answer choices on question slides. It's also used for body text on blank slides, text boxes, captions, and shapes.

To see the available theme fonts, go to the Design tab on the Quizmaker ribbon and click Fonts.

If you've created any custom theme fonts, they'll appear at the top of the list, in the section called Custom. The Built-In theme fonts appear below that. The theme fonts used on the currently selected slide are shown in orange. For each set of theme fonts, you'll see the name, the heading font, and the body font.

Applying and Managing Theme Fonts

To apply a set of theme fonts to all slides in your quiz, click the Fonts drop-down from the Design tab, and then left-click the theme fonts you want to use.

Or, from the Fonts drop-down, right-click a set of theme fonts and choose any of the following options:

  • Apply to Matching Questions: This applies the theme fonts to all slides based on the same slide master as the current slide.
  • Apply to All Questions: This applies the theme fonts to all slides in your quiz. (You can achieve the same thing by left-clicking the theme font.)
  • Edit: This opens the theme font editor. More about that in a minute (see the section below called Modifying theme fonts). This option is only available on custom theme fonts you've created, not any of the built-in theme fonts.
  • Delete: This removes the theme fonts from Quizmaker. This option is only available on custom theme fonts you've created, not any of the built-in theme fonts.

Creating New Theme Fonts

Here's how to create a new set of theme fonts:

  1. Click the Design tab on the Quizmaker ribbon.
  2. Click the Fonts drop-down.
  3. Select Create New Theme Fonts at the bottom of the list. The theme font editor appears. When you make changes to either of the two fields on the left side of this window, the Sample area on the right side of the window changes to reflect your choices.
    • Use the Heading font selector to choose the font you'd like for question text and slide titles.
    • Use the Body font selector to choose the font you'd like for everything else.
  4. In the Name field, enter a name for your custom theme fonts.
  5. Click Save.

Now the custom theme fonts will be available in any quiz you build.

Modifying Theme Fonts

It's easy to modify custom theme fonts you previously created. Here's how:

  1. Click the Design tab on the Quizmaker ribbon.
  2. Click the Fonts drop-down.
  3. Right-click the theme fonts you want to modify, and select Edit.
  4. The theme font editor appears where you can modify one or both fonts. (Use the same guidelines shown above for creating new theme fonts.)

Note: You might notice that built-in theme fonts can't be modified. However, you can create your own theme fonts based on any of the built-in themes. Here's how:

  1. First, apply the built-in theme fonts you want to use as your base fonts (i.e., left-click them).
  2. On the Design tab, click the Fonts drop-down and choose Create New Theme Fonts. This opens up the theme font editor, and the fonts will default to the ones from the theme fonts you're currently using.
  3. Just make any changes you like and save the new theme fonts under a different name.

How Do Theme Fonts Relate to My Font Choices on Slide Masters?

In the same way you can apply theme fonts to specific slides in your quiz, you can also apply theme fonts to a slide master. When you do, any slide in your quiz that's based the modified slide master will inherit those same theme fonts.

You can always override the font assignment for a slide by manually customizing individual text boxes.
