I have a custom theme that my company uses for all powerpoint presentations. For whatever reason every single time I put in a text box on a slide I am preparing in Powerpoint 2007 the font changes to Arial. I have tried changing the font for the theme, setting a custom theme font, and many other items. I want it to be set on Calibri. I can't get it off of Arial.

Thanks!

Format a textbox the way you want, then right-click and choose Set as Default Textbox.

Shot in the dark:  Can you save the template on your desktop and take full control of the saved file? Doing so may enable you more granular editing capabilities.

Try opening a new presentation then setting the theme, after that go into the master and make sure that you have applied the theme to the master slides as well.  This will ensure that all new additions to your presentation meet the new theme layout.

FYI

If you set a theme, and a master then select a textbox and right click>set as default you will overwrite your theme, and master settings.

There are two types of text "objects": One is a text placeholder (which say "click to add text" and "click to add title"), the other is a manual textbox (Insert | Textbox).

To apply your font to the placeholders, go to View | Slide Master, select the edge of the placeholder and apply your font. Adjust size as necessary.

To apply your font to manual textboxes, it's as I mentioned. Insert Textbox, then format it as desired. After that, right-click and Set as Default Textbox.
