Summary
In this chapter, you learned how to create new slides, either from scratch or from outside
sources. You learned how to select, rearrange, and delete slides, and how to place content
on a slide. Along the way, you learned the difference between a content placeholder and a
manually inserted object, and how to create your own text boxes, move and resize objects,
and fi nd or replace text. These are all very basic skills, and perhaps not as interesting as
some of the more exciting topics to come, but mastering them will serve you well as you
build your presentation.

In the next chapter, you’ll learn about themes and layouts, two of the innovative features
in PowerPoint 2013 that make it such an improvement over earlier versions. You’ll fi nd out
how a theme differs from a template and how it applies font, color, and effect formatting
to a presentation. You will then apply layouts and create your own custom layouts and
themes.
