Color Scheme Manager

You can store 16 color schemes within a template/presentation. However there is no quick approach available to copy a color scheme from one presentation to another. The most common approach would be to apply a template/presentation containing the desired color scheme into the presentation.

Color Scheme Manager allows you to create a master database of color schemes which can be assigned names. One can copy import/export selected color schemes from/into other presentations at a click of a button.
