Shape Styles gives you access to styles shared among your team and allows you to create your own. A Shape Style can be applied to any shape and will affect every formatting aspect (background, border, font, padding, alignment, effects...) except dimensions and shape type.
Apply a Style
In order to apply a style to a shape, follow these simple steps :
- Select a shape
- Click on the Styles button in the UpSlide ribbon
- Click on the Shape Style you wish to apply
Here is an example of what you can achieve in a single click.
Apply master format
If you need to reapply the format from the master to a placeholder or shape, you can directly use this feature to change not only the format of the shape itself, but also the text formatting and indent levels.
Difference with Quick Styles
- You can create your own styles, whereas PowerPoint only proposes pre-defined styles.
- Applying an UpSlide Shape Style will apply the right text formatting according to indentation levels, whereas PowerPoint Quick Styles will only change text color.
Add a Shape Style
Adding a Shape Style to your collection is simple. Just select a shape and click on the Add Style button in the Styles menu. Then all you need to do is enter a name for your style.
Delete a Shape Style
Clicking on the Delete Styles button in the Styles menu will display a window in which you can select one or more Shape Styles to delete. Simply click on delete to remove them completely.
Note: As a user without an Administrator License, you cannot delete Team Styles.
The following is only accessible to people with an Administrator License.
As an Administrator, the Shape Styles you create will appear as Team Styles, which means they are part of your customization.
In order to share the Team Styles collection, go to Settings > Customization and click the Export My Modification button. You can then either perform a full export or choose to export only the Shape Styles modifications.
