The shapes, elements, tables and text boxes in the downloadable galleries have been created so that you can select to use PowerPoint source or destination formatting when adding them to your PowerPoint slide. This means when you paste a shape into your PowerPoint presentation, it will update automatically to recolor using colors from your template's color theme! By default, the Slide Library applies destination formatting when you paste, however simply check the "Use Source Formatting" checkbox if you would prefer the shape to be pasted into your PowerPoint presentation using the colors shown in the Slide Library image. Note that Flags of the World do not have this setting applied and will always paste in their original/ intended colors.
*Please note that we do our best to keep aware of any country / state/ region place name, boundary and or flag changes. If you notice any outdated or incorrect place names/ boundaries/ flags, this is unintentional. Contact us with the update required and we will update the relevant gallery promptly.
