Modifying the Slide Master
Modifying the Slide Master
If you don’t like the layout of your slides, call up the Slide Master and do
something about it, as shown in these steps:
1. Open Slide Master View by opening the View tab on the Ribbon and
then clicking the Slide Master button, found in the Presentation Views
Alternatively, you can hold down the Shift key and then click the Normal
View button near the bottom right of the screen.
2. Behold the Slide Master in all its splendor.
Figure 10-1 shows a typical Slide Master. You can see the placeholders
for the slide title and body text. Although none are visible in this
example, the Master can also contain background colors and other elements
that are present on each slide.
The Slide Master includes placeholders for three objects that appear at the
bottom of each slide: the Date area, Footer area, and Number area. These
special areas are described later in this chapter under the heading, “Using
Headers and Footers.”
A thumbnail of each Slide Master as well as the layouts for each Master
are shown on the left side of the screen.
