powerpoint >> Change color on font following hyperlink during slideshow

by a2lub3NoaXRhaw » Mon, 26 Sep 2005 07:56:03 GMT

I have a Powerpoint slide with hyperlinks, and I want the font to change
color during the slideshow after I've clicked on the hyperlink. I've changed
the color in "Edit Color Scheme" on "Accent and followed hyperlink".

However, it will not change color during the slideshow, but only shows the
color changes when I click "Escape" back to editing mode.

How do I get the color change during the slideshow?

I've seen this happen a lot on a MAC, but very infrequently on a PC.

There are 3 things you can try:

Turn back graphic acceleration: http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00129.htm
HTML round tripping: http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00526.htm
If you have any items Grouped on the slides, ungroup them.

Sorry, I forgot one other thing. Make the presentation file name is as short
as possible and make sure it doesn't have any spaces or special characters in

1. How to get Followed Hyperlink to *not* change Font Color

Using MS/Word 2003 I have a document with embedded Bookmarks of different

3. Followed Hyperlinks don't change color PPT 2007

On another MS page a user wrote: "I'm using a Jeopardy game PowerPoint 
template in my class to review concepts. The hyperlinks work but they don't 
change color once they have been followed. I've tried several different 
techniques but can't get the followed link to change color unless I exit the 
SlideShow view and go back into Normal view.

Does anyone have a solution for this problem?"

I created this Jeopardy game [www.lynnembailey.com/ppt.com] back in 1998 
actually, and I am investigating this problem. It's never been an issue in 
Office 2000, or 2003. Coincidently I got a new computer with a limited trial 
version and I tested it. Indeed the links do not change colors at all in show 
mode, but revert to the changed colors in edit (normal) mode. I created a new 
slide and a couple of new hyperlinks (both text and graphic box) and these 
only change colors if they've been clicked twice! 

This is a serious glitch and it's not fixed in Service Pack 1 either. What I 
did discover however, is that it plays perfectly in PowerPoint 2007 Viewer.

5. Color of Hyperlink (and Followed Hyperlink) Text While Utilizing

We don't often place any kind of links to websites in our PPT presentations 
so when I built our Themes I opted to not choose a color for either Hyperlink 
or Followed Hyperlink.

That was apparently a mistake.

Today, in preparing a Theme presentation, I attempted to place the text of 
some useful websites on a slide and they disappeared.  I was unable to assign 
any color to them after they were copied and pasted onto the slide.

I went back to Theme Builder and set both colors to black, reapplied the 
Theme and they now appear (in black) but I still can't apply a different 
color to them at all.  The bullet in front of the text changes color, but not 
the text itself.  

I know some prefer to have the hyperlink text to be a different color...but 
we really don't want it to be that set off from the regular text.  This isn't 
an issue for some of our Themes (I can match it to the color of the body 
text) but we have some Themes that have both light and dark backgrounds where 
the body text varies based on the background.

It is getting to the point that we may have to split up our Themes so each 
has a single master, which I really would prefer not to do!

Is this a "feature," a bug, or did I do something wrong when I set the Theme 

I REALLY wish there was some kind of documentation SOMEWHERE to help set up 
these Themes.  I feel like I've got it somewhat down and then WHAMMO...the 
rug gets pulled out yet again.

(and I am still having issues w/ Themes that have multiple masters.  At this 
point I don't know where else I can go for help w/ them!)
