To change the theme fonts for the current document, go to the Design menu and select a new set of fonts from the Fonts dropdown (about 2/3 of the way along the ribbon). Rosetta stone download for mac. You can save the current theme + any such modifications by clicking 'Set as default'.
However, that does not change the theme itself - if you create another document and select the same theme, the theme properties are the 'factory default' ones (i.e. The ones defined by Microsoft). As for the comment that the headline/body fonts are 'the wrong way around,' Yes, the available choices in the fonts dropdown seem very limited • ISTR that it has been noticed that the Mac Word choice, i.e. Times for headers and Arial for body text, is the opposite of the Windows Word choice. But I'd have to check that to be sure. • I cannot see any simple way within the Mac Word User Interface (again, not sure about the Windows side) to make your own choices.
Double-click the font in the Finder, then click Install Font in the font preview window that opens. After your Mac validates the font and opens the Font Book app, the font is installed and available for use.
Word's Object Model does not seem to have any direct way to deal with this either. The expectation from Word 2007 onwards seems to be that you work with various XML files to achieve what you need, but as usual, the available documentation does not seem particularly informative as to how you modify the factory-supplied styles. • However, with VBA, even on the Mac side, in Word 2011 it is possible to export the 'ThemeFontScheme' for the current theme for a document.
That creates a.xml file that you can edit (e.g. Swap Arial and Times around) and then re-import. For example, to export the ThemeFontScheme from the Active Document to a file, you can use VBA like this: Sub exportThemeFontScheme() Dim dt As Office.OfficeTheme Set dt = ActiveDocument.DocumentTheme ' Substitute your username for 'username' dt.ThemeFontScheme.Save 'Macintosh HD:Users:username:Documents:myfontscheme.xml' Set dt = Nothing End Sub You should then be able to edit that XML (e.g. In Mac OS X TextEdit) to define the fonts you need.
I won't attempt the details right now but will try to edit this Answer when I have had a better look. Save the resulting file. Then, you can re-import the FontScheme into the current document, using, e.g. Sub importThemeFontScheme() Dim dt As Office.OfficeTheme Set dt = ActiveDocument.DocumentTheme ' Substitute your username for 'username' dt.ThemeFontScheme.Load 'Macintosh HD:Users:username:Documents:myfontscheme.xml' Set dt = Nothing End Sub As you can tell, this is not a familiar area for me either! I have described an alternative way of doing this for Word 2011, and I have successfully applied the file that I generated for 2011 to Word 2016 (Word 15). However for a clean version of Word 2016 the theme font xml files do not appear to be available. The procedure I have got to work is as follows.
