In all three cases, PowerPoint adds a blank slide with a standard layout
that includes a title and content area, as shown in Figure 1-5. If you want to
choose a different layout, click the Layout button in the Home tab to display
the gallery of slide layouts. This pane enables you to pick from several types
of slide layouts. Just click the one that you want to use, and PowerPoint sets
the new slide to the layout of your choosing.

Each slide layout has a name. For example, the Title and Content layout
includes a text object in addition to the title area . This is probably the layout

supporting points. For example, Figure 1-7 shows a typical bulleted list slide.
