and add your own. (Keep reading to find out how to do that.)

Choosing a Theme
When creating a new presentation from scratch, sure, you can go with plain vanilla
slides—black text on a white background. But why not add a touch of flair? Unlike
templates (see previous section), themes don’t contain multiple slides or placeholder
content. Instead, they apply a single design scheme to all the slides you create within
a presentation. Here’s how to use ’em:
1. SelectFile New Themes(Alt,F,N,I).
PowerPoint displays its built-in themes. Each theme has its own background
design, font styles, and color scheme. Browse through the choices until you see
one that looks good; click it to see a larger version in the right preview pane.
2. Clickthethemeyouwanttoselectit,andthenclickCreate.
Your presentation now has a theme to unify its design.
