That's great ... but it doesn't work that way for me. Forinstance, this last presentation I chose the blue border ... and I always choose the blank slide [although this refuses to remain the default], ... then I chose the effects, the timing, ... then there's no place to choose the font for the text. Then I added twice the number of slides I figured I'd need [added 50 this time] ... then clicked on 'apply to all'. Then I added text to the first slide - the size of the font here would be different being the header, [I chose papyrus with red] ... then I went on to the next slide ... and added the text ... it was Ariel with black, so I 'selected all' & re-chose the font & color ... ditto for each subsequent slide; each time, I can return to hit the 'apply to all' ... but the text & color do not remain. These details are added for you, Dan, although it works/doesn't work the same no matter what other styles I've chosen, either initially or as I add the new slides. Andrew, I think you're the only one who understands to what I'm referring; thanks.

I don't know whatmean when you ask "So you're able to change the text on all the slides?" What type of change are you talking about? Are you talking about changing the font of the text on all the slides? You have not even stated what style you have applied to your text. Nor have you stated what styles you are using in your slides. Nor have you described what layout you have selected from the Layout section of the Task Pane. Please give us some details. I was using styles in Impress before OOo 2.0. For all layouts which have a title "box" at the top of the page, LO and AOO apply the Title style listed in the Presentation styles list. Modifying this style modifies all the titles in all the slides at the same time. You have a copy of my slide show. Change one of the styles in the Title style and look at the titles in all the styles. For example, in the Font Effects tab, change the font color. This will change the font color for every slide title in the presentation. What I have described is how Impress has worked for "years." --Dan anne-ology wrote:So you're able to change the text on all the slides?; then mine has a bug in it somewhere ... carried over from OO I guess ;-) So, all you computer geniuses, what's the solution? - I'm awaiting your responses now.

I'm actually just abeginner with LO and I had never opened Impress until you posted. The method I described below allows you to change all the slides at the same time, so you only have to make the change once. Of course if you add more slides you need to do it again for the new slides. No, it's not ideal and yes it would be nice if it worked the way you describe. Good idea!

[would this expand the size of LO even more than it is?; if so, I guess, it's better this way, just frustrating at times.] I've even added more slides than I would need, in order to see if the font & color will hold, but it won't ;-) On Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 10:58 PM, Andrew Brager <firstname.lastname@example.org:I missed the part where you were using Impress, I thought you were usingWriter. After re-reading your original post and some of the other responses I think I now understand what you really want. I also have not been able to figure out a way to do it exactly as you described, the best I could come up with is to go to the "outline" tab, select all the text, then change the font. That way, all of your slides will have the same font for that one file.
