Headers and Footers
If you need boilerplate information to appear on each slide, you can insert it as a
footer at the bottom. What you put here is pretty much up to you. Include standard
stuff like the date, time, or slide numbers—or whip up a custom footer, featuring
your organization’s name or finger-pointing confidentiality reminders. For notes
and handouts that you print, you can also add a header.
Time-Stamping Your Slides
Let your audience know that your information is up to date by adding the date, time,
or both to your slides. On the Insert tab, click the Text section’s Header & Footer
button (Alt, N, H) to open the Header and Footer dialog box, shown in Figure 22-3. Turn
on the “Date and time” checkbox. When you do, these options become available:
Update automatically. Turn on this radio button if you want PowerPoint to
update the timestamp whenever someone works on the presentation. Use the
dropdown lists to choose the info and format you want (such as 5/1/2010; Saturday,
May 5, 2010; May-10; 5/1/2010 10:20 AM; and so on), the language for the
timestamp, and (if you choose a non-Western language) the type of calendar.
Fixed. Turn on this radio button if you want the timestamp to stay the same, no
matter when the presentation gets updated. Then type the date you want in the
text box just below.
If you want your timestamp to show on all slides except the first one, turn on the
“Don’t show on title slide” checkbox.
Click Apply to All to time-stamp the entire presentation or Apply to time-stamp just
the current slide.
Figure 22-3:
When there’s information you need to add to all
slides in a presentation, use the Header and Footer
dialog box. The lower-right preview shows where
the text you’re adding will appear on your slides.
The dotted line represents the slide’s content area.
