Using the Font Dialog Box
To apply a font from the mini toolbar, follow these steps:
1. Select the text to be formatted. It can be on a slide master (most preferable), on a
layout master, or on an individual slide.
2. Hover the mouse pointer over the selection so that the mini toolbar appears, as
shown in Figure 5.2. If it does not appear, right-click the selection.
Use the mini toolbar to apply a font.
3. On the mini toolbar, open the Font drop-down list.
4. Point to a font other than the ones marked (Headings) or (Body). The selected
text is previewed in that font.
5. Click the font that you want. PowerPoint applies the font to the text.
Using the Font Dialog Box
The Font dialog box (shown in Figure 5.3) provides a third way of changing the font. It also
gives you access to the controls for setting font size, color, and attributes, all of which you
will learn about later in this chapter.
To open the Font dialog box, click the dialog launcher in the Font group on the Home tab.
Then make your selections in the dialog box, just as you would from the Home tab’s Font
group. Notice in Figure 5.3 that the Font drop-down list is labeled Latin Text Font. In this
case, “Latin” just means regular text characters.
Replacing Fonts
If you restrain yourself from using a lot of manual text formatting, and rely on the theme
to control the way the text appears, you should not have a problem with inconsistent font
usage. Whenever you need to make a change, you can do it once on the slide master and be
done with it.
