Putting Footers (and Headers) on Slides
Choosing a different list-numbering
style, size, and color
PowerPoint offers seven different ways of numbering lists. As well as
choosing a different numbering style, you can change the size of numbers relative
to the text and change the color of numbers. To select a different
list-numbering style, size, or color, begin by selecting your list, going to the Home
tab, and opening the drop-down list on the Numbering button. If you like one
of the numbering-scheme choices, select it; otherwise choose Bullets and
Numbering to open the Numbered tab of the Bullets and Numbering dialog
box. In this dialog box, you can customize list numbers:
Choosing a numbering scheme: Select a numbering scheme and click OK.
Changing the numbers’ size: Enter a percentage figure in the Size % of
Text box. For example, if you enter 50, the numbers are half as big as the
font size you choose for the items in your numbered list.
Changing the numbers’ color: Click the Color button and choose a
color on the drop-down list. Theme colors are more compatible with the
theme design you chose than the other colors are.
Putting Footers (and Headers) on Slides
A footer is a line of text that appears at the foot, or bottom, of a slide. Figure 3-7
shows a footer. Typically, a footer includes the date, a company name, and/
or a slide number, and footers appear on every slide in a presentation if they
appear at all. That doesn’t mean you can’t exclude a footer from a slide or put
footers on some slides, as I explain shortly. For that matter, you can move
slide numbers, company names, and dates to the top of slides, in which case
they become headers. When I was a kid, “header” meant crashing your bike
and falling headfirst over the handlebars. How times change.
