Background: Microsoft Office for Mac 2011, OS X 10.7.4, MacBookPro5,1. I desperately want to change the theme fonts and colors to take advantage of the interface advantages of having these elements at the top of every menu and preloaded into styles.
Although PowerPoint 2011 for Mac provides several, it doesn't allow you to create custom Theme Fonts sets within PowerPoint or in any other Office program. This, but it's one of those features that's not available on Mac versions of the program. So why is it important to be able to edit and create custom Theme Fonts sets? Some users would argue that you can easily change the fonts used within the Slide Master and individual Slide Layouts -- but that again will not change fonts used in shapes, charts, or even inserted text boxes.
Additionally, changes you make in the Slide Master are only applicable for the presentation you are working with. Conversely, if you can create a Theme Fonts set, this will be available for applying in every presentation you create. We already told you that PowerPoint 2011 doesn't allow you to create custom Theme Fonts sets within the program interface.
However, there are two ways to create or introduce custom Theme Fonts sets in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac -- these techniques will also work for those who use PowerPoint 2008 for Mac. • Theme Fonts sets from Windows computers: You can copy any custom Theme Fonts sets created in Windows versions of PowerPoint -- all Theme Fonts sets are stored locally as Open XML files with an XML file extension. You copy these XML files to the corresponding folders on the Mac. • Editing XML file: You can edit existing XML files that represent built-in Theme Fonts sets, and save them to a designated folder.
We explain the second option in our tutorial. In this tutorial, we'll explore the first option that shows how you can copy a Theme Fonts set XML file from another computer -- typically this other computer is a Windows system, but if you already have custom Theme Fonts sets on another Mac system, then you can still follow this process: You first need to find out the local User folder on the other computer where the Theme Fonts XML files are stored. These locations differ depending upon the OS: Windows Vista, 7, or 8: C: Users AppData Roaming Microsoft Templates Document Themes Theme Fonts Windows XP: C: Documents and Settings Application Data Microsoft Templates Document Themes Theme Fonts Once you have located the XML file(s), copy to the local User folder on your Mac: Macintosh HD Users Library Application Support Microsoft Office User Templates My Themes Theme Fonts. Figure 1 shows a Theme Fonts XML file called Helvetica.xml in one of our Windows systems: Figure 1: Helvetica.xml file within the local User folder in Windows In Figure 2 you can see that the same XML file has been copied to a local User folder on a Mac -- we just copied the files using a thumb drive -- you can even email these files or share them on a network. Figure 2: Custom Theme Fonts XML file copied to the local (Mac) User folder Once the XML file is copied to the local User folder, you can launch PowerPoint 2011.
If you primarily use Apple software and devices, AAC or Apple Lossless is certainly a fine option that will work for you. When ripping to MP3s, you’ll probably want to use the LAME encoder and pick 256 kbps VBR as your quality setting — that’s what most people seem to recommend these days. What is the best format for a windows and mac computer. Even Android smartphones play AAC files — but not every device does. Tag Your Songs Automatically The ripping program you’re using should be able to detect the discs you’ve inserted, look them up online, and automatically fill in the appropriate tags for each song — artist name, album name, track title, release year, and so on — for you.
