A quick way to change the design of your quiz is to switch fonts. Theme fonts control headings, body text, questions, and answer choices. Quizmaker 360 has several built-in theme fonts, but you can also create your own.

Tip: You can also replace one font with another throughout your quiz with just a few clicks. See this user guide for details.

Understanding Theme Fonts

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

  • The heading font is used for question text and slide titles.
  • The body font is used for answer choices, slide text, shapes, and captions.

To see your gallery of 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. Built-In theme fonts appear beneath your custom themes. The theme fonts currently in use for the selected slide are highlighted in blue. For each set of theme fonts, you'll see the name of the theme, the heading font, and the body font.

Applying and Managing Theme Fonts

Hover over a set of theme fonts to preview what they'd look like if applied to the current slide. Just click a theme to apply it to all the slides in your quiz.

Right-click a theme to see these additional options:

Apply to Matching Slides

This applies the theme fonts to all slides based on the same slide master as the current slide.

Apply to All Slides

This applies the theme fonts to all slides in your quiz. (You can achieve the same thing by left-clicking the theme fonts in the list.)

Edit

This opens the theme editor. (See Customizing Theme Fonts below.) This option is only available for theme fonts you've created, not built-in theme fonts.

Delete

This removes the selected theme fonts from Quizmaker. This option is only available for theme fonts you've created, not built-in theme fonts.

Creating New Theme Fonts

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

  1. Go to the Design tab on the ribbon and click Fonts.
  2. Select Create New Theme Fonts at the bottom of the drop-down list.
  3. When the theme editor appears, choose a heading font and a body font. (As you make changes, the sample area on the right side of the window updates to reflect your choices.)
  4. Enter a name for your custom theme fonts.
  5. Click Save.

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

Customizing Theme Fonts

It's easy to modify your custom theme fonts. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Design tab on the ribbon and click Fonts.
  2. Right-click the custom theme fonts you want to modify and select Edit.
  3. When the theme editor appears, choose new fonts and click Save.

Built-in theme fonts can't be modified. However, you can create your own theme fonts based on built-in themes. Here's how:

  1. First, apply the built-in theme fonts you want to use as your base fonts to your quiz (i.e., left-click the theme).
  2. Then, click the Fonts drop-down again and choose Create New Theme Fonts. The theme editor will open, and the fonts will default to those from the built-in theme you're currently using (from step 1).
  3. Just edit the fonts to your liking and save the theme with a new name.

Using Theme Fonts on Slide Masters

You can apply theme fonts to slide masters in the same way you apply them to quiz slides. Slides in your quiz that are based on the modified slide master will inherit those same theme fonts.

You can always override the default fonts for a quiz slide by manually customizing individual text boxes.
