Changing background color

The background color of your presentation can set the mood for your audience or match your brand colors.

Pastel or dark shades are great using a solid color for your background. Also, we recommend avoiding strong colors like neons and bright reds or yellows. They might be overwhelming for your audience.

To change your background color

1. From the editor, click the Background & Theme button in the context toolbar, or go to View > Show Background & Theme to get the pop-out sidebar.

3. Click the colored square next to “Background color.”

4. You can also add a customized color using its hexadecimal code or by selecting it from the color chooser.

5. Select the background color from the palette. If you choose a gradient you’ll have to choose the start and end colors.
