In a Powerpoint 2002 presentation, I'm trying to change the color of a
hyperlink without changing the color of the accent. Please provide
directions that will produce a satisfactory outcome as described
I have a presentation that uses a dark blue background. The hyperlink
currently blends into the background so as not to be visible. I would
like it to be yellow or someother easily visible color.
I have been approaching this problem by going to format/slide
design/edit color scheme/, clicking on the "accent and hyperlink" box,
change color, choosing a yellow color fromt the Standard tab, ok, and
Apply. When I do this, the hyperlink color changes but the rest of
the slide now has a yellow overlay (the accent, I suppose). The
current accent is alight blue which produces a darker blue boarder
which becomes lighter toward the center of the screen where the text
lives. I'd like to retain the current background color and accent.
I am already aware that I could make the background and accent very
different and then the hyperlink would be visible.
I have tried selecting the text that will become the hyperlink and
changing its color to a yellow, but when I actually make it a
hyperlink, it reverts back to the color of the accent.
