  • I am not completely sure what is being asked here but Office products have the ability to bring in templates by going to Page Layout > Themes > Browse to themes > select a theme that is the following format: .thmx, docx, xlsx, pptx, dotx, xltx, ppsx, docm, potx.

     

    To create a theme, it is a good idea to know the following information from your website: the font style and font size, and the colors (RGB numbers will give a closer match).

     

    Here is an article that explains how to apply and customize a theme:

  • That is close, but we have an existing Style sheet and I wanted to know if you knew a way to convert the style sheet without redoing the whole thing.

  • This does not appear to be possible because websites are set up in CSS (html format) and Office themes are set up in XML format. When I rename a theme file into .zip and open the xml files in the zip folder, manually changing the codes in the files would be more work than going into the program itself and creating a template.

  • This would be neat - and dare I say an essential feature.

    why pay/ spend time developing the same thing twice?

    a css is a standard for fonts, sizes, headings, colours etc - so most businesses would want this as their design or theme/ template for their printed communications (or email for that matter!)

    come on MS - lets get this as a solution
