Enabling Optional Display Elements
To resize the current slide so that it is as large as possible while still fi tting completely
in the Slides pane, click the Fit Slide to Current Window button, or Choose View
Fit to
Window.
Another way to control the zoom is with the Zoom dialog box. Choose View
Zoom to
open it. (You can also open that dialog box by clicking the % next to the Zoom slider in the
lower-right corner of the screen.) Make your selection, as shown in Figure 1.25, by click-
ing the appropriate button, and then click OK. Notice that you can type a precise zoom
percentage in the Percent text box. You can specify any percentage you like, up to 400%.
(Some panes and views will not go higher than 100%.)

You can zoom with this Zoom dialog box rather than the slider if you prefer.
Enabling Optional Display Elements
PowerPoint has a lot of optional screen elements that you may (or may not) fi nd useful,
depending on what you’re up to at the moment. The following sections describe them.
Ruler
Vertical and horizontal rulers around the Slide pane can help you place objects more pre-
cisely. To toggle them on or off, select or deselect the Ruler check box on the View tab, as
shown in Figure 1.26. Rulers are available only in Normal, Outline, and Notes Page views.
The rulers help with positioning no matter what content type you are working with, but
when you are editing text in a text frame they have an additional purpose. The horizontal
ruler shows the frame’s paragraph indents and any custom tab stops, and you can drag the
indent markers on the ruler just as you can in Word.
