Making a new theme from the current document

I am hoping this would be a solved problem (🤞) … and I’m only posting because I couldn’t find a similar pre-existing question here, but:

How do I apply the current theme for a document to a new document?

I have this one outline, and I want to make another one, but I’ve slowly changed a few fonts and colors here and there, that are “just right” for me, and I would like to have the new one “look the same”.

I could go and replicate the changes in the inspector, but I’m wondering if there’s a better way to do this?

Much thanks,

(tagging this as “for Mac” since that’s where I’m trying to do this, but … I guess if there’s a cross-platform way of doing this, that would work too)

You need to save your desired ‘theme’ as a template document.

File > Save as Template…

Note that the text of your document will also be saved. So at some point, you might want to duplicate the document, remove all non-template text and then save as template (or after saving it, edit the template).

Once you have your template saved, you can create new documents based on it and also Format > ‘Apply Template Theme…’ to existing docs.


That worked exactly as you said, thank you so much!

You’re welcome. Glad I could help.
