Can I change the appearance of a single hyperlink in PowerPoint 2010? I don't want to change all the theme's hyperlinks.

Unless I'm mistaken, you can change the font, size etc. but not the colour. – Karan Feb 23 '13 at 19:49

You can change pretty much everything (size, case, spacing, style, shadows etc.) except the color.

The only way to change color will affect other links too, cause it's a theme change. Copying from word won't work either.

:( Too bad. Thanks for the reply. – John Assymptoth Feb 23 '13 at 21:24

While you can't change the formatting of text you've applied a hyperlink to, you can apply the hyperlink to the text BOX (click in the text then press ESC to select the box) that contains the text. Or if you want to apply the link to only a portion of the text within a text box, you can draw a rectangle that covers the area you want to turn into a link, apply the link to the rectangle, then give it no outline, any color fill but make the fill 99 or 100% transparent.

That's a nice workaround, especially if converting to PDF maintains the links. – John Assymptoth Mar 2 '13 at 5:57
