Define your own settings in Smarter Slides.

AdministrationAdmin

Be your own PowerPoint add-in administrator. Change Smarter Slides add-in language, customize color palette or create individual status tags.

In most cases working with a standard solution is quite comfortable. But when it comes to your own defined corporate identity, colors, fonts and working habits it can cause some additional work. Within the Smarter Slides settings, you can administrate our tool to your specific needs: Change the language, customize the color palette or select your standard fonts. Define your own slide status message and advanced template options (e.g. always adjust the templates to your custom colors). Just open the admin panel to customize your settings and make our Smarter Slides to your Smarter Slides.

Change to own colors
Check to automatically change the color of the template shapes to your own defined colors.

Customize: Delete placeholder text
