Hi all,

Does anyone have the vaguest idea of how to set the theme and fonts in Office 2010 using a GPO in Citrix?  I have been looking for ages and can't find it.

We have the Microsoft Office 2010 ADM but I cannot find any settings within it that detail the required areas.

If there is no way to do it using GPO then a registry patch will suffice if all else fails.  Again though, where would that be set?

Many thanks people!

The theme fonts are built into themes (THMX) and templates (POTX, DOTX, XLTX) files. I don't think you can set theme fonts separately via GPO.

I unfortunately can't tell you how to set default themes and templates via GPO, though, sorry.

Ok, thanks for the info.  It may come in useful.

I have set the Theme colour to blue using a regupdate in a GPO but the fonts may have to be manually set OR I could use the method you suggested.

I will give it a try.. Thanks!

What do you mean you've set the theme color to blue? I think that's usually referring to the application interface (in Office 2010, anyway).

If your ultimate goal to roll out default templates and themes for Microsoft Office programs, then I can at least help you know where the files have to be located: http://www.echosvoice.com/powerpoint-2007-where-to-save-themes/ (This was written for Office 2007, but I believe it's the same for Office 2010.) Basically, the files will need to be pushed to subfolders in the users' %appdata% folder.

I wish I could help more -- rolling these out via GPO is an area I'd love to have a better handle on, too!
