Create a Custom Theme Colour (or Color) Scheme for Word, PowerPoint or Excel on Mac Office 2011


I was working in Word with a colour (color) scheme I wanted to change. In googling around I found this page here from Microsoft which pointed out that you can edit or create an Office Theme using PowerPoint (see screen shot below) which you can then use in Word.

Open PowerPoint, click the Themes ribbon tab, and over on the right is the Colors (Colours) button and “Create Theme Colors”, which leads to the screen shot below.
