iSpring QuizMaker comes with a gallery of design themes to choose from. In the Design tab of the Slide View mode, you can find a standard theme that you like and apply it to a single question slide or to all slides. It's possible to modify it by changing fonts and background styles.

You can save a modified theme as your own custom theme and reuse it in your quizzes or share it with other trainers.

Create a Custom Theme

iSpring QuizMaker comes with several preformatted themes that have been designed to alter the appearance of your quizzes.

When you are done with changes, apply your custom theme to all slides if necessary or save it for further use.
