Customizing a theme
Customizing a theme
Office 2013 includes quite a few themes. If that’s not enough, you can modify them and even create
your own themes.
Notice that the Page Layout➜Themes group contains three other controls: Colors, Fonts, and Effects.
You can use these controls to change just one of the three components of a theme. For example, if
you like the Urban theme but prefer different fonts, apply the Urban theme and then specify your
preferred font set by using the Page Layout➜Themes➜Fonts control.
Each theme uses two fonts (one for headers and one for the body), and in some cases, these two
fonts are the same. If none of the theme choices is suitable, choose Page Layout➜Themes➜Fonts➜
Create New Theme Fonts to specify the two fonts you prefer (see Figure 10-4). When you use the
Home➜Fonts➜Font command, the two fonts from the current theme are listed first in the
dropdown list.
Figure 10-4: Use this dialog box to specify two fonts for a theme.
Use the Page Layout➜Themes➜Colors command to select a different set of colors. Also, if you’re so
inclined, you can even create a custom set of colors by choosing Page Layout➜Themes➜Colors➜
Customize Colors. This command displays the dialog box shown in Figure 10-5. Note that each
theme consists of 12 colors. Four of the colors are for text and backgrounds, six are for accents, and
two are for hyperlinks. The first ten are the colors that appear in theme color selector controls. As you
specify different colors, the Preview panel in the dialog box is updated.
