Manage Colors

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 180+ time saving features. PPT Productivity's Color Toolbar for PowerPoint makes it easy to access the colors from your PowerPoint presentation template. The toolbar lets you select to change a fill color, an outline color or a text color.

You can add custom colors to the Color Toolbar which means you can create an extended Color Palette - perfect for Marketing and brand teams in large organizations. Once you setup custom colors, you can also export your Color Toolbar setup to share with colleagues.

Customize Color Palette Toolbar

PPT Productivity's Color Toolbar lets you create a custom color palette in PowerPoint, so that all colors you prefer to use are easy to access.

PowerPoint color schemes for your presentation are often determined by the marketing team. But it's not always easy to find the correct color when working in a presentation. You can customize your color palette on PPT Productivity's Color Toolbar to include any additional colors you frequently use.

The standard PowerPoint theme color lets you set up only 6 color accents, 4 text color variants and 2 hyperlink variants for your template. However if you have an extended color palette for your brand, with PPT Productivity you can add these colors to your Color Toolbar. You can share your Color Palette Toolbar setup with your team.

Large teams can also get the color names customized to suit brand guidelines. By default the Color Palette Toolbar includes the 10 standard PowerPoint colors, but you can also hide these via the Settings option on the PPT Productivity ribbon.

Productivity Tip

If you almost always use the same presentation template, ensure your template has the color theme correctly set up. Your Presentation template's theme populates Group 2 on your Color palette toolbar, providing easy access to your nominated template colors.

To do this, you need to edit the template .potx file rather than the instance of the template which opens when you select new presentation. Refer to our Color Palette for PowerPoint themes in templates guide.
