I have the task to roll-out Office 2007 to all of our staff here and to ensure it goes ahead smoothly. One requirement was that each Office program defaulted to the same fonts as Office 2003 (Arial, Times New Roman, etc). So far I've been successful in doing this with MS Word (template file), Outlook (registry settings), Excel (OCT setting) and now I'm finally looking at Powerpoint. If the pattern of each setting being hidden in a different location to the last continues, then I'm out of ideas of where to look for this program. :o)
I've done a bit of Googling on the subject and have read about 'master slides', etc, and am not totally convinced that that's what I'm after. If I understand correctly, master slides enable the user to have default fonts applied to new slides in existing powerpoint files. What I'm after is a setting to set the default font for the whole program, including when you start off a new file from scratch.
These settings must be able to be applied to all users of a machine, even if a new user logs onto a machine for the first time. We're fairly flexible in being able to set that up using GPOs or logon scripts, etc.
Thanks in advance
