Keeping It Consistent

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Keeping It Consistent

If you use MS PowerPoint 2007, I’m sure you’ve found the Themes in the new program editions.

I use PowerPoint a lot and I find the Themes to be a wonderful way to quickly change the look of my presentations. I mean, what could be better? A quick trip to the Design tab on the ribbon, choose a Theme and you get a set of colors, fonts and everything else you could possibly need.

Sounds like a plan to me!

You may have even found the Themes in Word 2007, but did you know you can also apply those Themes in Excel 2007?

In both of those programs, you need to head to the Page Layout tab on the ribbon.

On the far left side, you’ll find the button for Themes.

By using them in one, two or three of the programs, you can easily keep formatting aspects consistent, giving your information a polished appearance.

Consistency can definitely be a good thing! If everything switches formatting too often, it can feel like the information doesn’t really belong together. Readers who are very visual in the way they process things will really notice inconsistencies and they may focus on the formatting more than the information.

Also, I’m sure we can all agree that focusing their attention on the information is the whole point of your work!
