Themes are a quick way to format your Presentations within ProPresenter. They can be applied to individual slides, entire presentations, or entire libraries with just a few clicks. Using Themes within ProPresenter can take your prep time within ProPresenter down drastically.
Starting with ProPresenter7.11 there is a more up to date Theme View than in previous versions, as well as new features such as adding Media Actions to Themes.
To create a theme, choose More... from the toolbar, and then select Theme Editor. Inside the Theme Editor, you can adjust currently created themes, or create a brand new theme. On the left hand side of the Theme Editor, you should see all Theme Slides within the theme in the Slide Navigator.
On the top left of the Slide Navigator, you can select the Theme you want to adjust, and then select from a Theme Slide inside that theme. Choosing the "+" button immediately to the right of the theme selector, you can add a new Theme Slide within your theme. In the Slide Navigator, you can also right click on these Theme Slide to get other options like renaming, duplicating, deleting, copying or pasting, etc.
Under the Slide Navigator, you can see the Object List and this is where you can choose the "Z-Order" of slide objects on a specific Theme. This is a draggable list, so you can click and drag to reorder.
The center area of the Theme Editor will show the Canvas. The Canvas is where you can add content to your Theme to apply to Presentation slides. You can move things 'out of view' of the Canvas and they will still apply with the Theme, but nothing will show on the output, unless it exists on the Canvas.
The right side of the Theme Editor is the Inspector. This is contextual, based on what is selected. If nothing is selected, it shows the attributes of the Theme Slide, which contains things like Theme Size, Background Color, and starting in 7.11, you can add Media Actions to Themes. If you select anything in the Object List, or click on something on the Canvas, you can see that the Inspector changes based on what you have selected. For example, you can select on a text box, and it shows the font attributes, much like you'd see in the Presentation Editor. You can also choose items for Builds, or Shape properties.
Applying Themes to a Presentation
Once you have a theme created, you can then apply these to Presentations in your Library. To do this, simply single click on a Presentation in the Library, and then choose the Theme from the Theme selector from the Toolbar. You can also right click on individual slides within a Presentation, and apply a theme to a single slide, or a range of slides by selecting them. In the Theme Selector, you will also notice a new feature starting in 7.11 that you can enable and disable Media Actions when applying themes with the image icon at the top right of the Theme Selector.
Applying Themes in Bibles
You can also Apply themes to Bible searches as well from within the Bible View. To access this menu, choose "Options>Slide Options" from the top right of the Bible View, and choose a Theme from this menu. Once you have a Theme selected, you can choose which slide object you want the Verse, as well as the Reference to show up in by clicking the dropdown next to the version of the Bible you are viewing.
Applying Themes to Screens in Looks
You can also apply Themes to Looks in Screens>Edit Looks from the Menu bar. This functionality is available to reformat 'on-the-fly', the same text that exists on a triggered slide to an output. You can create multiple Looks to assign themes to screens at different points during the service, via slide click, or with Macros.
