Color Bold Text

Recolor bold text in your PowerPoint presentation in one click.

Add emphasis to selected text in your PowerPoint presentation by bolding it and coloring the bolded text. This is a great way to draw attention to key words on your slides. You can either select a textbox on a slide and click to recolor all bolded text in the textbox.

Or you can apply the feature across multiple slides! Simply select the slides from the thumbnail view, then click the recolor bolded text to update the selected slides in a single click. The feature will avoid slide titles and automatically skips shapes where the background is already the specified color.

By default the feature will recolor the bolded text to your template theme color, but you can customize the color by selecting the Change Color option on the dropdown menu, available when clicking on the feature
