  • This sample presentation was created in a minimal amount of time and makes use of the designs, transitions, and animations in Microsoft PowerPoint. In the presentation, we created an organizational chart, embedded an Excel chart, and changed the design template. When you’ve finished examining the slides, view the slide show to see the animations, transitions, and movies, and hear the sounds. This first slide uses the Title Slide layout. To add a slide, on the Formatting Palette under Add Objects , click the Slides tab, and then select a layout. Click a placeholder and type your text. PowerPoint automatically formats the text according to the specifications of the design template. For each slide in this presentation, we used the slide layout that best represents the type of information we wanted to include on the slide. Text On the title slide, we used the text placeholders to type “SAMPLE PRESENTATION” as the title and “PowerPoint Basics” as the subtitle. To enter text in a text placeholder, click the placeholder and type the text. The top line of text, “Company Name presents,” is in a text box instead of a text placeholder. When you use text boxes, the text style matches that of the template you’re using, but you’ll need to size and position the text box on the slide yourself. Note that text entered in a text box does not appear in the outline. To add a text box: On the Insert menu, click Text Box . On the slide, drag to create the box. Type the text.
