Tech Tip of the Week: PowerPoint 2007

From the IT Group:

Do you use PowerPoint frequently and find it frustrating to have to change your font style or other formatting preferences every time you create a make a new slide? If you use Office 2007, you can create a template exactly the way you like and reuse it for all future presentations. Once you have opened PowerPoint:

  • Click on the View Tab -> Slide Master
  • In the Edit Theme section, change your font to the desired style and size
  • Close Master View (far right side)
  • Under the Office Button -> Save As -> change the TYPE to PowerPoint 97-2003 template and change the name to Blank Presentation

To retrieve your Blank Presentation template, click on the Office Button -> New -> My Templates - > select Blank Presentation.

If you apply more than one slide design in your presentation, you will need to make the same formatting changes in each of those Master Slides.

Give it a try! If you have any questions regarding this or any other technology issues, please feel free to contact the HelpDesk at 358-2532, e-mail or stop by our office on the 2nd floor of Elliot Hall.
