Replace Color

Ribbon

Replace color
Click to open the Replace Color Manager to replace fill, font or outline colors of shape(s), chart(s) and table cell(s).

Replace Color Manager

Old color
Click to select a color which is currently used within the active presentation and should be replaced by another color. After click on the color field, the Color Selection Manager window will open to enable the color selection.
New color
Click to select a color which should be the replacement colors. After click on the color field, the Color Selection Manager window will open to enable the color selection.
New color
Choose between “Current Slide”, “Select Slides” or “All Slides” to decide on which slides you want to replace the color. “Current Slide” is retrieved by your selection within the slide preview (selection is marked red). You can also change the selection during the appearance of the pop-up window. “Select Slide” selection will open the Slide Manager to enable the definition of the scope.
Fill / Font / Outline
Check which color type should be replaced. Choose between (multiple selection is possible):
  • Fill color
  • Font color
  • Outline color
Note that the fill and outline color of objects will be changed regardless of any transparency or pattern settings.
Fill / Font / Outline
Choose how accurate the search and replace mechanism should work. You can choose between two possibilities:
  • Medium: Color is only replaced depending on the object font settings. Note that these settings can differ to the actual displayed color setting within an object (e.g. words can be formatted differently than the object itself).
  • High: Color is replaced on word-level and ignoring the object font color settings but therefore looping through all words within an object. Note that this option is much slower than the other and is only available for a scope less than 50 slides.
OK
