Formatting text in Google Slides can be difficult. Here are some guidelines to help you do things correctly.
The default font-sizes used in the slide template are 52, 24, 18, 16, 14, and 10. Before reducing font-sizes, please consider reducing the amount of content by talking to points. Lots of text at small font-sizes are often difficult to read at far distances and cause the audience to read rather than listen to the presenter.
The default text color is Liferay Black.
Labels and captions use Secondary Blue.
Any accent colors use Liferay Primary Blue.
For additional colors, please refer to Blueprints.
The weights used are normal, semi-bold, and bold. Never thinner or bolder.
Line spacing by default is 1 (single) for titles and 1.15 for everything else.
Paragraph spacing after paragraphs is 0px/8px/16px, depending on how much space is needed after a hard return.
