Modifying Placeholders and Deleting a Slide
You have been using Normal view to create and edit your slides. Once you
completed your slides, you reviewed the i nal products by displaying each slide
in Slide Show view, which occupies the full computer screen. You were able to view
how the transitions, graphics, and effects will display in an actual presentation before
PowerPoint has other views to help review a presentation for content, organization,
and overall appearance. Slide Sorter view allows you to look at several slides at one time.
Reading view is similar to Slide Show view because each slide displays individually,
but the slides do not i ll the entire screen. Using this view, you easily can control the
progression through the slides forward or backward with simple controls at the bottom
of the window. Switching between Slide Sorter view, Reading view, and Normal view helps
you review your presentation, assess whether the slides have an attractive design and
adequate content, and make sure they are organized for the most impact. After reviewing
the slides, you can change the view to Normal so that you may continue working on
To Change Views
