Wizards This is a short program within a software package that asks the user for the basic information and then creates a complete document of slide show.
Slide Layout This is the arrangement of placeholders on a slide.
The slide layout must relate to the type of information being presented. Each slide should convey only one idea or piece of information. When choosing a slide ask yourself these questions: I. What am I trying to achieve in this presentation? II. Do I need to give a lot of information? III. Would it be better to give the information as text, images or diagrams?
Themes are design templates that can be applied to an entire presentation that allows for consistency throughout the presentation.
Design templates are created so that even though different slide types can have different layouts and graphics, the whole presentation goes together as an attractive package.
