  2. 2. PowerPoint´s various view enable you to see your presentation in a variety of ways:• Normal view: is the default view that lets you focus on an individual slide.• Slide sorter view: displays all the slides in a presentation on a single screen.• Notes page view: shows one slide at a time, along with any notes that are associated with the slide.• Slide show view: lets you preview your presentation on the screen, so you can see it the way your audience will see it.• Reading view: is like slide show view except it´s in a window rather than filling the entire screen. 1
  3. 3. You can modify your presentation´s view by changing its color.You can have multiple presentations open at the same time in PowerPoint, and you can arrange theirwindows so that they are all visible at once.Properties are details that the user defines in his/her document. Document properties include detailedinformation such as title, author´s name, subject, and key words that identify the document´s topic or content.PowerPoint can save presentations in several different file formats. Files of different formats can have thesame file name. If you want to save the presentation with an older version of PowerPoint, you can save it withthe PowerPoint 97-2003 presentation file format.PowerPoint´s print preview features shows you how your slides will look on paper before you print them. Youcan preview and print a presentation in several different formats:• Full page slides: one slide prints per page as large as possible.• Notes pages: one slide prints per page with any notes below it.• Outline: the text of the presentation prints in outline form, graphics do not print.• Handouts: multiple slides print per page, designed for distribution to an audience. 2
  4. 4. When you begin a new paragraph by pressing enter after an existingparagraph, the new one keeps the same alignment and formatting asthe paragraph above it.PowerPoint provides four paragraph alignment options:• Align text left: aligns the paragraph at the left edge of the object.• Center: aligns the paragraph in the center of the object.• Align text right: aligns the paragraph at the right edge of the object.• Justify: aligns text to both the left and right margins to distribute the paragraph of text evenly across the width of the object. 3
  5. 5. Line spacing changes can help you display text more attractively or fit more text on a slide.The line spacing drop-down list in the paragraph dialog box enables you to selectfrom these settings:• Single: sets the spacing to what single spacing would be for the font size in use.• 1.5 lines: sets the spacing halfway between single and double spacing.• Double: sets the spacing to what double spacing would be for the font size in use.• Exactly: sets the spacing to a precise number of points.• Multiple: enables you to specify a multiplier for spacing. 4
  6. 6. Bullets are small dots, arrows, circles, diamonds, or other graphics that appear before a shortphrase word. When you crate a bulleted list on your slide, you can continue it automaticallyafter the last item by pressing enter.You use the same alignment options in a text box that are available for a text placeholder: left,center, right, and justify.Clicking a theme applies it to all the slides in the presentation, but you can also apply it to oneslide.You can select the colors from some other theme, or you can create your own color theme.Each theme supplies a combination of two fonts to be applied to headings and text, these arecalled a font theme.A serif is a tail or flourish on the edges of each letter, such as the tiny vertical lines hanging offthe top edges of a capital T. 5
  7. 7. A footer is text that repeats at the bottom of each slide in apresentation.A header is repeated text, much like a footer, except itappears at the top of each page. Headers do not appearonscreen in Slide Show view- only on printouts. 6
