In this post, I will introduce to you about theme in word. You will know how to setup, use, create new theme in word.
Similar to Templates, with Themes you can easily and quickly give your documents a professional format using the provided templates.
Theme is a set of formats including: colors, fonts, effects,…for the entire text. Each Theme usually has 3 components: Theme Colors, Theme Fonts and Theme Effects. To beautify your document, let’s find out the use of this feature.
I. Use Theme in Word.
For example, in the picture below is my formatted document. Now I want to reformat it (different font or font color) then I will have to choose from the suitable Theme templates given.
1: Go to Design tab. In Document Formatting section, choose Theme.
2: Choose a theme from the 30 given themes.
The format of the paragraph has been automatically change according to the theme chosen.
II. Setting theme in Word.
Because there are 3 components of Theme. Theme settings means we make adjusting on these 3 components.
1: Apply theme, the steps have been shown above in the I section.
2: Still in the Document Formatting section, look to the right edge. The choices will be:
Colors to change all the colors used in the text.
Fonts to change the font. Notice that the Body and Heading fonts will change differently.
Effects to change the effect (Shadow, Reflection, Glow, Soft Edges, Bevel, 3-D Rotation) of graphic objects in the document.
In addition, you can also select Paragraph Spacing to change the spacing between lines and paragraphs of the text.
III. Create a new Theme in word.
After editing, the Theme is now as desired and you want to save it to apply later, you can follow the steps below:
1: In Design tab, selecting Theme again and select Save Current Theme…
2: When the Save Current Theme box appears, name the Theme in the File name box, select Save. These files will have the Save type as Office Theme. (*.thmx)
To reuse this Theme, you just need to select Design tab, in the Document Formatting group select Browse for Themes… Then select the Theme to use and Open it.
And that’s what Theme. I find Templates and Themes are also quite similar. Theme alone has less options and is mainly used to adjust the format for headings. However, there are also advantages such as convenience, time saving and beautiful design.
Hope this article will be useful to you. Goodbye and see you in the next posts.
