A new feature in Office is the ability to apply predefined themes to the document. The Document Theme defines the colors, fonts, tables, charts and graphic effects for a document. Themes provide consistency across the document. They also provide a coordinated look in Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint slides.
The same theme will blend any graphics into a coordinated document that has a professional look.
Create your document first; then use the themes/styles to create a professional looking document.
The following predefined themes will display:
Select one of the theme or Select theme colors
Do not be surprised .... nothing will show on the document
Go to Home tab / Styles Group
The color of the Styles, etc. will change according to the Theme you select
Now you are ready to edit your document
Select from the choices
