Customizing Your Presentation’s Design
In this same dialog box, you can adjust the orientation of your slides, notes, and handouts
or define a specific width and height.
Adjusting a presentation’s aspect ratio after content has been added can wreak havoc.
For example, images that looked fine at a 4:3 aspect ratio appear squashed when you
switch to 16:9. If possible, determine your final presentation format before graphics
and other media are placed on your slides. Otherwise, allow yourself time to modify
these items after a new aspect ratio is applied.
An additional page setup option you can use on your slides is headers and footers. These
small lines of text help keep you and your audience focused on where you are in the
presentation by inserting slide numbers. They can also add the date and time or other custom
text that you set.
To customize the header and footer for the current slide and for all slides, click the Header
& Footer option on the Insert tab. Use the Header And Footer dialog box, shown in
Figure 18-22, to set your preferences. Click Apply to add your settings to the current slide or
Apply To All to add your settings to all slides in the presentation.
Figure 18-22 Click Apply To All to add the header and footer customization to all slides; select
Don’t Show On Title Slide to eliminate the customization from any slide formatted with the Title
