Background Colour

This can be done either on the Master slides or for individual slides.
A slide background appears behind the objects on a slide and can be either a solid colour or a fill effect or picture.
Some of the built-in templates have different background colours.
When you select a design template the slide background colour and shading is decided by the colour scheme
You can change the colour and shading options while retaining the other design elements.
You can either apply a background to all the slides or just the selection of slides.
Select (Format > Background) to display the Background dialog box.

Choosing the Colours

8 are from the colour scheme
the other 8 are colours you have also used in the presentation ???
You can select any colour for your background, you are not restricted to choose one of the eight colour scheme colours.
However if you choose a colour that is not from the colour scheme then this colour will not automatically change when you change the colour scheme.
For this reason it is often best to choose a colour from the colour scheme colours if possible.


Save dark backgrounds for slides designed to be shown on large screens.
You can copy the background of a slide using the Format Painter.
Applying fill effects is covered on the next page.
