How to Change the Font on All Slides in Google Slides

This article will explain everything you need to know.

Change the Font on All Slides With Master Slide (pre-October 2021)

When you decide to experiment, follow these steps to change the font on the entire Google Slides presentation. This process is applicable if you have a version of Google Slides that predates October 2021.

  1. Launch Google Slides and open your presentation.
  2. Click the “Slide” menu.
  3. Choose “Edit theme” to access the master slides.
  4. Select the first slide which is the “master slide.”
  5. You have two options for font changes here:
    • The top text box changes the slide titles.
    • The lower text boxes control the text in the presentation body.
  6. Select one or more text boxes depending on which areas of text you want to change.
  7. Choose your new font from the Font drop-down list. Your text in the presentation will be updated with this change.
  8. Click the “X” in the top right corner to close master slides.

Leaving the master slides open can result in accidental but monumental changes, so verify that this is closed before you continue working on the presentation.

  2. Select the “Slide“ menu.
  3. Choose “Edit theme“ from the drop-down menu.
  4. On the left, you can see each of your presentation’s slide layout templates, and how many slides use each template.
  5. Click the “MASTER“ slide at the top.
  6. Click on the text in the template that represents the block you want to change. If you want to change all of the titles for instance, click the Master Title text box.
  7. In the toolbar at the top of the screen, you’ll see the font options. Choose a font from the drop-down Font menu.
  8. You can also resize the font if you wish with the plus and minus signs next to the font size.
  9. Change any other levels of text in your presentation that you desire.
  10. View the slide template to see how your changes appear.

Your changes will now be reflected in the entire presentation.

  2. Choose a text box to experiment with.
  3. Click the Font drop-down arrow in the toolbar.
  4. Click “More fonts.”
  5. A window will pop up for managing the fonts that show up in the Font drop-down menu.
  6. Browse through the font library. You can filter, sort, and search the font types.
  7. When you see a font that interests you, click its name to add it to your list of “My fonts.”
  8. You can also click the “X” next to a font to remove it from your “My fonts.”
  9. Click “OK” once you’re done font exploring.

Google Slides supports all Google Fonts. Unfortunately, it doesn’t currently offer the ability to port in third-party fonts. Their list is extensive, however, and should have plenty of fonts to choose from to complement your presentation theme.

Other Tips for the Master Slide Template

While you’re editing the master slide, it’s helpful to know your options. Not only can you change the presentation’s text, but you can also edit just about anything in the presentation:

  • Background
  • Text format
  • Theme, both pre-set and customized
  • Slide layout
  • Text Placeholders

Any of these features can be changed in the entire presentation with the master slide template.
