Using and Positioning Placeholders
Using and Positioning Placeholders
The handout master has four placeholders by default: Header, Footer, Date, and Page
Number, in the four corners of the handout respectively:
Header. Appears in the upper-left corner and is a blank box into which you can
type fi xed text that will appear on each page of the printout.
Footer. Same thing as Header but appears in the lower-left corner.
Date. Appears in the upper-right corner and shows today’s date by default.
Page Number. Appears in the lower-right corner and shows a code for a page
number, <#>. This will be replaced by an actual page number when you print.
In each placeholder box, you can type text (replacing, if desired, the Date and Page codes
already there). You can also drag the placeholder boxes around on the layout.

There are two ways to remove the default placeholders from the layout. You select the
placeholder box and press Delete, or you can clear the check box for that element on the
Handout Master tab, as shown in Figure 17.6.

Turn on/off placeholder elements from the Handout Master tab.
Mark or clear check boxes for placeholders.
Because the header and footer are blank by default, there is no advantage to deleting these placeholders unless they
have something in them you want to dispose of; having a blank box and having no box at all have the same result.
You can’t move or resize the slide placeholder boxes on the handout master, nor can you change the handout mas-
ter’s margins. If you want to change the size of the slide boxes on the handout or change the margins of the page,
consider exporting the handouts to Word and working on them there. See the section “Exporting Handouts or Notes
Pages to Word” at the end of this chapter for more information.
