This article will cover how ProPresenter maintains special text attributes through audience looks.
If you have a theme applied to one of your screens that alters the text in any way, in most cases the text of your slides will follow the settings of that theme. There are a couple of unique instances where that will not be the case.
The types of formatting that will pass through is text that is Bold, Italic, Underlined, or a different color. But things like the position of text and font size are always going to match the settings of the theme applied to that screen.
ProPresenter will only maintain the formatting of text it sees as special. Special text is any text in a text box that is formatted differently than the rest of the text in that text box. For instance, if you refer to the below screenshot you will see "Jesus" is bolded and red on the slide. So if I sent that slide to a screen with a theme applied, "Jesus" would remain bolded regardless of how the theme is setup.
But, if all of the text on your slide is bolded and red like the below screenshot then both the bold nature and red text will not be maintained. Instead the slide will just match your theme settings.
If you find that you often have slides that are fully bolded, underlined, or otherwise but you want that bold to be maintained you can always set punctuation to "normal text" (not bolded, italic, or anything like that) and then the special formatting of that slide will be maintained.
The other way you can accomplish text formatting being maintained on your screens with themes applied to them is to create multiple looks and multiple themes. Creating a theme for your screen that is normal text and one that is the same look, just with the text set to bold. Then create two audience looks, one with each theme assigned and change to the appropriate audience look when needed.
