Change fonts / colors / chart elements in Powerpoint for Mac 2011
Posted on 2013-01-15
I am working on a 40+ page powerpoint that I did not create, but am trying to edit and update. The file was not built using masters or themes, so it's quite a tedious task.
Is there any way to do a "find and replace" for fonts or colors in Powerpoint for Mac? I've done a few searches and it seems I may be able to use a VBA or macro to do a find/replace for the fonts / colors and chart elements; however, I have never used vba or macros and would not know where to start on doing this.
Basically, I need to do the following:
Change the color of about thirty charts (the chart elements and surrounding text)
Change all of the black text in the presentation to gray
If you look at the attachment, basically the first 12 pages have been done, but I need to format the rest of the document and am hoping to find a faster way than copying and pasting to do this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am on a tight deadline with this project, so the faster I can get this done, the better!
