When you create or modify a presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint, the default font used by PowerPoint is the Times New Roman font. This article describes how to change the default font for new or existing presentations and presentations based on a design template.
To change the default font, use the appropriate method for your situation.
Method 1: If You Want to Change the Font for a New Presentation
The font you selected in the preceding steps will be the default font for new presentations you create.
Method 2: If You Want to Change the Font for Existing PresentationsNOTE: This procedure does not modify existing text in your presentation. It does change the default font that PowerPoint uses when you create any new text boxes or placeholders in your presentation.
Method 3: If You Want to Change the Font for Specific Design TemplatesNOTE: This method only works for new presentations that you create using the specific design template you select in step 3. If you apply this template to an existing presentation, the default font information is not transferred. To change the default font, use "Method 2: If You Want to Change the Font for Existing Presentations."
