Design themes make it easy to apply a range of coordinating features to each of your slides. Slide backgrounds, as well as font styles, colors, and sizes, are stored in the design theme. By default, only one design theme can be applied to a presentation. However, sometimes it is useful to have one or more additional themes available in the same presentation. This can be achieved by adding a new theme to the slide master that contains all the information about the layouts and styles of the slides in that presentation.
