A new feature 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 presentation first; then use the themes to create a professional looking document.
