Styles in PowerPoint allow a user to easily format text and embedded tables into formats in one click. As an administrator, you can deploy standardized Styles to your whole team. When a table or text in the table is fully or partially selected, UpSlide will apply the chosen predefined style to the header, standard, and final rows. Each of the three row types may be assigned background colors, font styles, and outer and inner borders.
Creating a shape style
Styles allow you to easily apply the shape fill and outline and text font, color, and size. To initially create a Shape style:
- Create a text box or shape with the formatting you want to replicate
- Go to the Shape button on the UpSlide toolbar
- Select Add Shape Style (if you have none yet you will not see any previews)
- A popup will appear where you enter your name
Creating a table style
- Create the table in PPT (three columns and four rows minimum)
- Apply the borders, text fills, underlined formatting, and font sizes as normal
- Select the table
- Go to the Table Styles button
- Select Add (previews will only appear if you have previously added styles)
- A popup will appear where you enter the name
To use this Table Style when you have a table selected in PPT, go to the Table Styles button and select the preview of the format you wish to apply.
Deleting either a table or shape style
- Go to the Shape or Table button on the UpSlide toolbar
- Select Delete Styles (if you have none yet you will not see any previews)
- Select those you want to remove and press Delete
Exporting your changes to your users

Made a mistake and want to revert back?
- If you have never made or exported changes before, ask your IT department to reinstall UpSlide on your machine and you will get back your originally provided templates.
- If you have previously made and exported changes since you last had UpSlide installed you can manually (re)install a .UpSlide to go back to the last set of changes you made.
