Automatically change the font of all text boxes in Impress

I received a PowerPoint presentation from a colleague. I converted it to Impress. The presentation uses a font that takes a lot of time to load. I want to change it to a different font. Do I have to make the change in each and every text-box? Or is there a way to change all fonts at once?

Hello @ErelSegal-Halevi,

To change the Font for all Slides in the current Impress document, you could use the following macro:

  1. Just copy-paste the below macro into your [My Macros].Standard Basic Macro library;
  2. set the name of your preferred Font inside the macro itself ( currently it is set to Times New Roman );
  3. then open the Impress document whose Font to change;
  4. then run the macro by choosing the menu Tools : Macros : Run Macro... and browse to the macro named Impress_Update_Font() and click the button Run.


Sub Impress_Update_Font()
REM Updates the Font for all Slides in the current Impress document.
REM All other Font properties such as Size, Color, etc., are left intact.

	Const strNewFontName As String	= "Times New Roman"	REM <-- Preset your preferred Font Name here.
	Dim oDoc As Object	:	oDoc = ThisComponent
	If oDoc.SupportsService( "" ) Then
		Dim oSlides As Object	:	oSlides = oDoc.getDrawPages()
		Dim oSlide As Object
		Dim oShape As Object
		Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
		On Error Resume Next
		For i = 0 To oSlides.getCount() - 1
			oSlide = oSlides.getByIndex( i )
			For j = 0 To oSlide.getCount() - 1
				oShape = oSlide.getByIndex( j )
				oShape.CharFontName = strNewFontName
			Next j
		Next i
	End If
End Sub
