The PowerPoint Window
The PowerPoint window consists of a variety of components to make your work more
effi cient and documents more professional. These include the document window,
Ribbon, Mini toolbar and shortcut menus, Quick Access Toolbar, and Offi ce Button. Some
of these components are common to other Microsoft Offi ce 2007 programs; others are
unique to PowerPoint.
Portrait Page
If your slide content
is dominantly vertical,
such as a skyscraper
or a person, consider
changing the slide
layout to a portrait page
orientation. To change
the orientation, click the
Slide Orientation button
in the Page Setup group
in the Design tab and
then click the desired
orientation. You can use
both slide and portrait
orientation in the same
slide show.
PowerPoint Window
The basic unit of a PowerPoint presentation is a slide . A slide may contain text and
objects, such as graphics, tables, charts, and drawings. Layouts are used to position this
content on the slide. When you open a new presentation, the default Title Slide layout
appears (Figure 1–4). The purpose of this layout is to introduce the presentation to the
audience. PowerPoint includes eight other built-in standard layouts.
The default (preset) slide layouts are set up in landscape orientation , where the
slide width is greater than its height. In landscape orientation, the slide size is preset to
10 inches wide and 7.5 inches high when printed on a standard sheet of paper measuring
11 inches wide and 8.5 inches high.
