The Mekko Graphics Preference Manager allows you to have full customization of colors and color usage, fonts, and other settings that affect chart appearance. In addition to providing the ability to customize your global Mekko Graphics preferences, the Preference Manager also provides the ability to manage multiple Mekko Graphics themes. The ability to use multiple Mekko Graphics themes provides greater flexibility when you are creating charts for different client or user populations.

 

ACCESSING THE PREFERENCE MANAGER

To access the Preference Manager, go to the Mekko Graphics tab in PowerPoint and select Preference Manager.

There are two main tabs in the Preference Manager: Themes and Settings.

 

APPLYING PREFERENCE MANAGER SETTINGS

Once you use the Preference Manager, those changes will affect future charts that you create or edit. It will not automatically change charts you have already created.   For existing charts, you can apply your new Preference Manager settings by opening the chart and choosing Apply PM Settings from the Edit Chart toolbar.

This function allows you to take the active Preference Manager settings and apply them to your chart. This will change the default chart colors if those colors, fonts, and other features, if they are different from your Preference Manager settings.

You can update your entire deck all at once with new Preference Manager settings by clicking Update All Charts.
