If you already installed Theme Builder and created a new theme by playing around, you might get disappointed to learn that PowerPoint complains about the theme files you created being corrupt.

That’s because a theme you create from scratch only includes the parameters you add, and these parameters might not be complete. For instance, it is possible you added some info on how you want the backgrounds to look, but left out the part about effects, fonts, or fills. Naturally, PowerPoint expects to find information about all the parameters and thus complains that the theme file is corrupt.

Explore for all versions of PowerPoint.
