Hi.
In Excel it's possible to copy/past format (through Paste Special) between
charts. However I do not find the same possibility in Power Point charts.

Do anyone know how I can easily transferr a chart design
(color/font/borderts etc) between charts in Power Point (2003).

Regards
Mr. Smith

You can set a chart as a Default chart so that each time you create a new
chart it uses that same design. Is that what you're looking for? Here's how:

Click on the chart that you want to become your default design (open to edit)
Go to Chart > Chart Type >Custom Types
Click on Set as Default Chart
Name the chart
Hit OK

BEFORE you do this, make sure your font auto scale is turned off (in edit
mode, go to Font for all text, uncheck auto scale).

Thanks Sandy!
I'm sure this will help me on new slides/charts, but can I replace design on
old charts through this? Say I have some 10 charts in a presentation, and
whant to replace the design on all of them to a new custom type design.

Anyway. Great hint, and I'll try to define my own Custom type chart
design....

Thanks
Mr. Smith
