Importing Customization
User interface confi guration fi les like the one you just saved in the preceding section can be
imported into PowerPoint 2013 on any other PC. Importing will wipe out any customization
settings on the other PC, so before you do this, make sure there are no customizations that
you want to keep and you can’t reproduce. Make sure that the PC receiving the customization
settings can access the fi le where you stored the settings. Then follow these steps to import:
1. If the PowerPoint Options dialog box is not already open, right-click any but-
ton on the Ribbon and choose Customize Ribbon.
2. Click the Import/Export button. A menu opens.
3. Click Import Customization File.
4. Select the customization file and click Open.
5. A confirmation box appears; click Yes.
6. Click OK to close the PowerPoint Options dialog box.
Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar
The Quick Access Toolbar, or QAT, is the row of buttons above the File button, in the upper-
left corner of the PowerPoint window. It contains a few buttons by default, such as Save,
Undo, and Redo, and you can add others to it. For example, I use Format Painter a lot, but
every time I need it, I don’t want to have to click the Home tab. By adding Format Painter to
the QAT, I make it available all of the time, and I don’t have to remember which tab it is on.
Adding Common Commands
PowerPoint maintains a short list of popular commands that you can quickly turn on or off
on the QAT. To do so, click the down arrow at the right end of the QAT and then select a
command from the menu to toggle it on or off. See Figure 22.9.
