Changing the Background Fill

You can also fine-tune the color scheme that you add to a slide or slides by changing the background fill. This works best in cases where the design template and color scheme that you selected don't provide a background color for the slide or slides. You must be careful, however, because you don't want to pick a background color that obscures the text and graphics that you place on the slide or slides.

To change the background fill on a slide or slides, follow these steps:

  1. Switch to the Slide Sorter view (select View, Slide Sorter ).

  2. (Optional) If you are going to change the background fill for selected slides, select those slides in the Slide Sorter window.

  3. Select the Format menu and then select Background . The Background dialog box appears (see Figure 4.5).

    Figure 4.5. Use the Background dialog box to add a fill color to a slide or slides.


  4. Click the drop-down arrow at the bottom of the dialog box and choose a fill color from the color palette that appears.

  5. To assign the fill color to all the slides in the presentation, click Apply to All . To assign the fill color to selected slides (if you selected slides in step 2), click Apply .
