The Theme Builder allows users to create themes for Microsoft Files and documents. This particular tool is designed for Office 07 products, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. This theme creator can be used on more than one type of document and should not be considered a template. The theme offers definitions for colors, image borders, lines, styles, font styles and other choices. The template defines how the data is formatted and presented to the end user. The builder can edit the themes in 2007 Office, and it may be wise to keep the original theme in case of problems.

The theme tool is a graphic-based interface that is divided up into five sections. This tool is simple to use, making it one of the best tools for novices to use to customize their Office documents. Here is the section breakdown: colors and fonts, line styles, fill styles, effect styles and background styles. This tool can bring your documents and templates to life and in a little while, you can discover the primary features. But before you move on, take a moment to sample the benefits of the builder.
