A slide master is like a template. It stores formatting information like fonts, colours, backgrounds, styles, and effects. Using a slide master creates a consistent look because it applies your formatting to your entire presentation. Create a slide master before building individual slides. That way, if you decide to make a change halfway through, you can change the slide master and all of your slides will automatically be updated. You can include more than one slide master in a presentation. The Slide Master
To create a slide master, under the View tab, click on Slide Master in the Presentation Views group. Create a Slide Master
Notice how the slides look in the Slide Master View. Slide Master View
Work with the Slide Master Go to the Office Online PowerPoint Help and How-to website, and search using the term “slide master demo.” View the following results: “Video: Create a new slide master in PowerPoint 2007” “What is a slide master?” “Create and customize a slide master”
Backgrounds are colours, pictures, or patterns that fill the slide behind your content. Using backgrounds can make your presentation stand out and grab your audience’s attention. Be mindful of how the slide background and content work together to enhance the overall visual appeal of the slide; the background should compliment but not compete with the message. Customize Backgrounds
To apply a background, click on your slide master, and then go to the Background group under the Slide Master tab on the Ribbon. You can also access these options from the Design tab. Work with Backgrounds Go to the Office Online PowerPoint Help and How-to website. Watch the demonstration “Demo: Add a background to your presentation.”
Headers and Footers Training Room 4 Footer A Footer is text that appears at the bottom of a slide. Footers usually contain the date, the title of the presentation, and the slide number. You can add a footer to the Slide Master, to only one slide, or to all slides, even if you did not use a Slide Master.
Go to the Insert tab and click on the Header & Footer button in the Text group. This will launch the Header & Footer dialog box. Use the dialog box to set options for slides and notes/handouts. To format the footer from the Slide Master, go to the View tab and click on the Slide Master button. Add Headers and Footers Go to the Office Online PowerPoint Help and How-to website, and watch “Demo: Add headers and footers to a presentation.”

Step 5: Make any other modifications you like, the goal is a visually appealing slide that is easy for your audience to read. Step 6: Include the logo you created in Training Room 3 (saved as “logo”) in the bottom right-hand corner of the Slide Master. Close the Slide Master view by clicking on Normal under the View tab.

Step 7: Under the Insert tab, click on the Header & Footer button and apply the date, your name, and the page number in the footer. Select Don’t show on title slide and Apply to All. Step 8: Create the following three slides: 1. Create a title slide using your name for the title and INF1070: Digital Presentation as the subtitle. 2. List three things you have learned or three ways you see yourself using PowerPoint. 3. List three possible presentation topics. Step 9: Save the presentation as “master.pptx” in your INF1070 folder. Do not close this presentation, as you will practise adding transitions and animations after reading the next several slides.
Slide transitions are animation-like effects that add life to your presentation. Transitions control how each slide replaces the previous one. You can set the effects and the transition speed and even add sound. Choose from a gallery of many different slide transitions, adding the same transition to an entire presentation or adding a different transition to each slide in your presentation. View this and the next three slides in Slide Show View to see transitions and animations in action! Go to the Slide Show tab and click on From Current Slide in the Start Slide Show group. Slide Transitions Go to the Office Online PowerPoint Help and How-to website, and watch “Demo: Add slide transitions to your presentation.” Then read the instructions on the following slide.
Choose the Slides tab on the left side of the slide window, and then select the slides you wish to apply transitions to (hold the Ctrl key as you click on each slide). Next, under the Animations tab, go to Transitions to This Slide group and choose a slide transition effect. Remember to click on the More button to see additional options. One of the options under the More button is a No Transition button—use this button to remove transitions. Set the Transition Speed and Transition Sound in the Transition to This Slide group. Click the Apply to All button to apply the same transition to all slides. Apply Transition Effects to Slides
First, select the object you wish to animate. Then, under the Animations tab, in the Animations group, choose the Animate effect from the drop-down list.

Go to Slide Show view now and click to animate this slide. Then press the Esc key to return to Normal view. Add Animations and Effects to Objects Go to the PowerPoint Help and How-to website, and view “Demo: Add animation and sound to text and objects in a presentation.”
Go back to the presentation you created a few slides ago (named “master.pptx). Add a different transition to each slide. Next, apply a built-in and a custom animation effect to your presentation. Save your presentation, but do not close the file. You will practise adding links, action buttons, and media clips in that presentation shortly. Try it! Practise Adding Transitions and Animations
