I have slides with multiple text captions and other text on
them and I want to change the font of all of them at one time. I
have tried selected all of the objects, but if I do this and then
click only one, change the font, select Apply to All, or Apply to
All Slides, it only changes the one I opened, not all of the other
Without creating a template, can I say I want all slides in a
particular project to use a particular font? Or create any sort of
styles, such as Heading and Body and designate a default
I surmise you are using Captivate 2, as you are referring to
new options with respect to the Apply to all > Settings button.
There is a condition where the font will not change using
this method. Let's assume you have inserted a caption and
configured the font. You click OK and the caption is placed on the
slide. You then suddenly realize that you failed to apply the new
font choice to all the other captions in your project. So you
double-click the caption, click to set the Apply to all and click
the Settings button. You then select to apply only the "Changed"
properties (because the font was the only thing you wanted changed)
and click OK. But nothing changes. And it's because after you
double-clicked the caption, you really didn't change the font.
Note that one option exists here that you can use but you
should know about its ramifications. When you click the Apply to
all > Settings button, there is an option labeled "Apply all
properties". Have you tried this option? If not, give it a try. But
you need to be aware that it will also typically size and position
all captions to reflect the one you are editing.
