How to Change a Font

  • Open your presentation in Google Slides.
  • Select one or more text boxes whose font you want to change. To select more than one, hold the Ctrl/Cmd key while clicking the text boxes.
  • Go to the toolbar, click the Font drop-down arrow and choose the font that best suits your needs. You’ll see an arrow next to some fonts. If you hover over one of these arrows, a list with the different available styles for that font will be displayed.

How to Change All the Fonts of the Presentation

  • You can change the font of all the texts in your presentation at once. This can be done from the master slides.
  • Open your presentation in Google Slides.
  • Access the master slides by clicking Slide → Edit master.
  • Select the master slide (the first one).
  • Select one or more text boxes in this slide and change the font by selecting the one you want from the Font drop-down list (if you don’t know how to change the font of a text box, please refer to the “How to Change a Font” section). The top text box controls the slide titles. The lower text boxes control the rest of the text in your presentation. Once you’re done, all the text in your document will be updated accordingly.
  • Close the master slides by clicking the “X” button in the top-right corner of the editor and make sure the changes have been applied to the slides. It’s important that you click the “X” button to exit the slide master because, otherwise, there could be unexpected changes if you don’t do it this way.

How to Add Fonts

  • To add fonts new fonts, just click their names. To remove a font, click the X next to its name under My fonts. Once you’re done, click OK.
  • Please note that Google Slides only supports fonts from Google Fonts. This means you can’t add third-party fonts to your presentation.
