  • 2. The PowerPoint Screen
    • Outline Pane Placeholder
    • Task Pane
    • Slides Pane
    • Notes Pane
    • View Buttons
  • 3. Slide Layout
    • The slide layout task pane contains placeholders for objects, such as: clip art, Word Art, charts & text.
    • It’s a good idea to vary your slide layouts to make your show interesting.
    • You can also add text boxes to your slides.
    Add text boxes too!
  • 4. Slide Designs
    • Design templates contain various colorful backgrounds, graphics & text colors and styles to apply to a presentation.
    • Using a design template creates a professional looking presentation (but they can be overused).
    • Or you can apply a different one to each slide.
  • 5. Color Schemes
    • PowerPoint’s design templates each come with a set of pre-designed color schemes from which you can choose.
    • You can customize your color schemes by going to: edit color schemes at the bottom of the task pane
  • 6. Slide Views
    • Slide sorter view (above) is good for re-arranging the order of your slides. In Normal view, you can access the Outline or Slides tab.
    • There are 3 slide views:
    • Normal
    • Slide Sorter
    • Slide Show
  • 7. Using Outline View
    • The Outline Pane displays a presentation so you can see an overview & organize content easily.
    • It works just like Outline view in Word
    • Use tab to jump from placeholder to placeholder (and shift+tab to end).
  • 8. Using PowerPoint with Word
    • You can open a Word outline in PowerPoint and everything in Level 1 of the Outline will be in the title area and Level 2 will be in the body section of the PowerPoint slide.
    • This can save time and help you focus on the CONTENT of your PowerPoint and not on the formatting.
  • 9. Formatting the Slides
    • Formatting in PowerPoint is almost the same as Word
    • You can align the text in the placeholders
    • You can use bullets
    • Numbering
    • Change line spacing
    • You can change the background color of a slide without using a Design Template. You can go to Format / Background and “omit” the background from a slide design template that you chose.
    Together !!! You can group objects
  • 10. Slide & Title Masters
    • The Slide Master is a template slide that contains colors, text, placeholders, and other items that appear on ALL slides in the same position.
    • Formatting changes that you make to individual slides will override the master settings.
    • The Title Master is a template for the Title slide layout only.
  • 11. Specialty Items
    • Organizational Chart is an illustration to show the structure of an organization.
    • A Chart is a graph illustration of numbers, percentages or other data.
    • A Table is a structure for organizing data into rows and columns
    data Data Data Data Data Data
  • 12. Preset Animation Schemes
    • PowerPoint supplies pre-set subtle, moderate and exciting animation schemes.
    • You can apply an animation effect to one slide or all the slides.
    • Many of these pre-set animation schemes also contain sounds.
  • 13. Custom Animation
    • Use the Custom Animation task pane to set animation effects, direction, property, and speed for text in a slide.
    • You can apply a different animation to each item on the slide if you choose.
    • WARNING: Don’t over do it! Too many animations are distracting and take attention away from the content.
  • 14. Transitions, Sounds & Advanced Slide Timings
    • Transitions are the visual effect used when one slide moves off the screen and another moves on,
    • Use can use sound files during a transition, when you click a button, from a CD track, or record a narration.
    • If you do not want to advance slides manually by mouse click, you can have the slides advance automatically – and you can customize the timings too.
  • 15. Adding Music & Movies
    • When you add music, audio or sounds into a PowerPoint you have many options to play the sound automatically, when clicked, for how long and if it should loop or not.
    • The options are the same for movies or animated clip art.
  • 16. Printing Options
    • You might want to print copies of your PowerPoint slides.
    • The options are print slides, handouts, notes pages or outline view.
    • You can even send your PowerPoint to Word for additional comments.
