  • 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.

    • Use the Custom Animation task pane to set animation effects, direction, property, and speed for text in a slide.

    • 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.
