How to Set a New Default Font in Google Slides

To get started, launch your browser of choice and open a Google Slides presentation. Once you’ve opened the presentation, click “Slide” in the header menu.

Click Slide.

Next, click “Edit Theme” near the bottom of the drop-down menu.

Click Edit Theme.

The theme editor will open. In the left-hand pane of the theme editor, click the slide under the “Theme” section to select it. This slide is called the Master slide. Any edits made to this slide will reflect in every slide of the theme.

When selected, the slide’s border turns blue and all of the slides’ borders underneath turn yellow.

Click the Master slide.

Now select the title text at the top of the slide. Usually, you have to click and drag your cursor over the text to select it, but in the Master slide, all you have to do is click it to select it. Text is highlighted in blue when selected.

Highlight the title text.

Now change the font of the selected text by clicking the down arrow next to the font name in the header menu, and then choosing the new font from the drop-down menu. In this example, we’ll use “Calibri.”

Choose your font from the menu.

Now do the same for each level of text underneath the title text. You can press Ctrl+A to quickly select all of the text on the slide. Once the text is selected, change the font to your preferred type.

Next, click any slide in the left-hand navigation pane. The changes you made to the Master slide will automatically be reflected.

Click a slide in the navigation pane.

To verify everything looks as it should, click any text box in your presentation. The font style should be what you set in the Master slide. In our case, our text is now Calibri.

The font style is now changed.

Even if you create a new presentation, as long as you’re using the same theme then the font style will remain as you set it.
