Working with slide masters

  1. 1. Working with Slide Masters Editing Master Slides in PowerPoint By Barbara Maroney
  2. 2. Introduction Everyone is busy these days. Many of us are responsible for presentations and material design. Why not set your project up from the beginning and save yourself some time and effort? The easiest way to do this is with Slide Masters.
  3. 3. So Plain! As you can see our slides are pretty plain. You could select a design or template and that would take care of much of the blahs! But what if you need to add a company logo? Or have a confidential label on slides?
  4. 4. So WHAT is a Slide Master? Per Microsoft (2013), a Slide Master defines the formatting and positioning for common elements – such as title placeholders, content placeholders, and footers – on the corresponding slide layout. Slide layouts define the position and formatting for text and objects that appear on the slide.
  5. 5. Where do I start? At the beginning of course  Big HINT: Set up your Slide Masters before you begin to put together you project. Establishing fonts, colors, and placement can keep your project on track and consistent. You can always make adjustments as you edit if you would like.
  6. 6. Finding Slide Masters On the main menu – Select VIEW Then make a selection from the Master Views. We will be looking at Slide Master only for this module.
  7. 7. Parts of the Slide Master 1. Slide master 2. Slide layouts 3. Title element 4. Body element 5. Footers (including date and time, footer text, and slide number) The first slide is often called the parent slide and the others children. If you make changes to the parent slide, the children adopt those changes. You can modify each slide if needed.
  8. 8. Ch..ch..changes Let’s start to personalize with titles. Current settings. See the Parent slide? Using the standard tools within PowerPoint, we can modify the text and change the style of the shape. You will notice on the left that each of the child slides has changed too.
  9. 9. Ta Da! Once the Slide Master is changed, all slides developed from that master will change. If you make the changes on the Parent, all the children will adopt the change. You may set up a second Parent Master if you would like. This allows you more flexibility!
  10. 10. Logos and Confidentiality What would you add next? How about a logo and a confidentiality statement? Common things on company or school documents. We would probably want this a bit smaller. Although I like her as is…but it is not practical! Determine the logo’s size. Copy it and open the Slide Master. Paste Granny where you would like her. Let’s try.
  11. 11. Go Granny Go! Granny is driving off every page! Granny is where I want her. Permission notice for content
  12. 12. Granny is everywhere As you can see, our picture of Granny appears on the parent and child slides. Simply add a new slide and then right click to choose a new layout. But since we added Granny to the Slide Master, she will appear on each option. If you don’t want Granny on a particular slide, simply select her and delete. She’s here too but hiding behind the title bar.
  13. 13. Footer One way to add the Confidentiality Statement is to add it in the Footer. First, you must INSERT the footer into the page – otherwise you will never see it on your slide. From the Main Menu, Select INSERT
  14. 14. Applying the Footer Once you Select the Header / Footer button, this dialog box will appear. Check the Footer box and enter the text you would like to have appear at the bottom of your page. Apply to this slide only, or you can Apply to All Remember to exit the Slide Master and SAVE your changes.
  15. 15. Our New Slide Master Now our Slide Master has a fancy title, our company logo, and a confidentiality notice on each slide. We can continue to add placeholders for content, pictures, or tables. We could change background styles. The choices are almost limitless. Be Creative and Go PLAY! Granny's on the Go!
