Managing Slides When you use Cut or Copy commands, content is stored on the clipboard. You can paste clipboard items as many times as you want. To rearrange the order of slides, drag-and-drop or use the Cut and Paste commands. To insert a new slide, click the New Slide button.
Creating a New Presentation You can create a blank presentation and apply preformatted colors, styles, and layouts called themes. Each theme has a unique color scheme, fonts and effects.
Slide layout refers to the arrangement of a slide Creating a New Presentation Dotted borders in the slide pane identify placeholders where you can insert text and graphics on the slide
Creating a New Presentation PowerPoint provides several presentation templates which already contain formatted content. You can modify a presentation template for your needs Advance to the next slide for tips on creating a PowerPoint presentation
Keep in mind two basic principles: 1. A presentation that is too busy can detract from the message you are trying to send 2. Design features should emphasize your content, not overwhelm it Creating a New Presentation
Keep your design simple. Use bullets to list information that does not need to be in any particular order. Use numbered lists for information that needs to be in order. Apples Pears Rutabaga Oreos 1.Wake up 2.Shower 3.Get dressed 4.Go to school
Applying a Theme Apply a theme to your presentation, which specifies a unique color scheme, fonts, and effects. If you like a theme, but you don’t like the colors, you can change the color scheme of the theme. To apply a theme, the presentation must be in normal view.
Working with Slide Masters A slide master is the main slide that stores information about the theme and layouts of the presentation. The slide master ensures consistency on each slide.
You should create the slide master before you create a new presentation. When you update one or more of the elements, such as the company logo, you can make a universal change (the edits will be reflected on all the slides in the presentation). Working with Slide Masters
Viewing a Presentation View your slide show using the Slide Show tab. Advance to the next slide by clicking the left mouse button or the spacebar.
Viewing a Presentation When your cursor is moved to the lower-left corner, four buttons appear. With the Pen, you can add annotations. Press escape to stop the slideshow.

To insert clip art and photographs, use the Clip Art task pane in the Insert tab. Content placeholders in slide layouts make it easy to add graphics. When you insert a graphic in a placeholder, it replaces the placeholder. Hint: Avoid clutter. Use graphics only to illustrate relevant points. Graphics
When you select a graphic, eight small squares and circles called sizing handles appear on its border. Click on the picture below to see the sizing handles. Graphics
When a graphic is selected, you can cut, copy, paste, delete, move, or resize it. To resize the graphic proportionally, drag a corner sizing handle. Play with the sizing handles on the graphic below! Graphics

Slide transitions determine how a slide is introduced as you move from one slide to another in Slide Show view. Transition options are located on the Transitions tab. Slide Transitions
Animations are special effects you add to text or an object. Animation options are located on the Animations tab. PowerPoint provides several animation effects for texts and objects. See these options on the next slide! Animations

You can remove an animation from an object completely using the Remove command at the top of the Custom Animation task pane, or you can modify an animation effect using the Change command. To preview an animation, click the Play button. Animations
You can use sound and video to add emphasis or set the mood for the audience. Adding audio and video clips is similar to adding graphics. Sound files that are under 100 kilobytes are embedded (shown on the slide itself). For sound files larger than 100 kilobytes and all videos, you can create a link to the file. Audio and Video Clips
You can insert sounds using the Audio button in the on the Insert tab. Sound clips are available in the Clip Art task pane. You can also record your own audio or upload an existing sound media file. Audio and Video Clips
