Variant Themes in PowerPoint 13

We have just found the perfect Template for us to use in our PowerPoint Presentation and we just wish that the certain Template was available in another color. Meaning, that we want to use the specific Template, but to be used with a different Color Theme.

What do we do? No fear, PowerPoint 13 is here.

Let’s see how can this be done.

First of all we must select the File tab in order to go to backstage view, and then from the available categories at the left we select the New category.

From here we can create a Blank Presentation or browse through the categories of the available Templates. In our case we browse through the available templates and once we have found the one that we are looking for we simply click on it.


Once we click on the template we have a larger preview of the template as we can see in the image below, which shows us the Layout of our Title Slide.

At the bottom area of the preview window we can select the left and right arrow besides the More Images command, in order to check out the layouts of the other slides to be followed.

At the top right of the window and under the name of the current Template name, we can check out the different Variants In This Theme that are available as we can see in the image below.


All we have to do is to click on one of the small previews on the right and the specific Variant of this theme will be enlarged for preview. Once we have decided which one to use, we just select the Create button and the template is ready for use in our Presentation.

However, if we change our mind and still want to change the Variant of the slide even though it is already downloaded, all we have to do is to select the Design tab and right area of the ribbon we navigate to the Variant area and select the different Variant of the template that we want by clicking on it.


Below you can check out the video, showing how to use the Variant option in PowerPoint 13.
