Adjusting the Handout and Notes Masters
Changing the Notes Master
Notes pages consist of a reduced image of the slide, plus any notes that you
type to go along with the slide. For more information about creating and
using Notes Pages, see Chapter 5.
When printed, notes pages are formatted according to the Notes Master. To
change the Notes Master, follow these steps:
1. Choose View ➪ Presentation Views ➪ Notes Master.
The Notes Master comes to life, as shown in Figure 10-4.
Figure 10-4: The Notes Master.
2. Indulge yourself.
The Notes Master contains two main placeholders — one for your notes
and the other for the slide. You can move or change the size of either
of these objects, and you can change the format of the text in the notes
placeholder. You also can add or change elements that you want to
appear on each handout page. Also notice the convenient placement of
the header, footer, date, and page number blocks.
3. Click the Close Master View button.
PowerPoint returns to Normal View.
4. Print your notes to see whether your changes worked.
