1 POWERPOINT 2010 CREATING POWERPOINT SHOWS You can create a presentation in PowerPoint in two different ways, by using a template or starting with a blank presentation. As the content of the presentation may vary it is best you know how to start using a blank presentation so you can do what you need to do. TO START POWERPOINT 1. Load PowerPoint 2010 from your computer - PowerPoint 2010 automatically starts with a blank presentation ready for you to use. The screen layout that you currently see is the normal layout. UNDERSTANDING THE LAYOUT OF THE SCREEN The idea of the ribbon (pictured above) is to simplify tasks as it takes fewer clicks to perform the task required; however, it takes a bit of practice to become familiar with if you ve not used it before. Each tab on the ribbon has associated groups of buttons for easy use. Context tabs also appear with extra buttons as and when required. PowerPoint allows you to view slides in several different ways. Normal View (This is the standard view). In Normal View you can work with your presentation in three ways: with the currently selected slide in the Slide pane, with slide notes in the Note pane and with the condensed list or slides thumbnails in the Outline/Slides pane. Slide/Outline View pane File Tab View Tab Placeholders for Text to be entered Notes Page 1 of 22

2 Slide Sorter View The Slide Sorter view allows you to preview the entire presentation as slide miniatures. This is a good view for reorganising the slide order it is easy to click and drag the slide miniatures to a new position. 1. From the View tab, select Slide Sorter option see slide thumbnails 2. Select Normal to return to the standard view ENTERING TEXT ON THE SLIDE 1. Click in the text placeholders and type in the text you require 2. Press the Enter key on keyboard to move down a line SLIDE LAYOUT A presentation can have a combination of different slide layouts whether it is a title page, a slide with bulleted text or with multiple images. To choose the layout you prefer: 1. From the Home tab, click Slide layout 2. Click on the slide layout most appropriate. Title and Content layout is a popular option Content can be text, picture, table, chart, movie, sound etc. Page 2 of 22

3 ADD A NEW SLIDE From the Home tab, click New Slide. A new slide will appear after the slide you are currently on. If you wish to add a new slide with a different layout you can click the arrow by the new slide button and choose the layout you prefer. INDENTING LISTS As you type, a list appears in a bullet form (usually a round bullet). To indent the list further, from the Home tab, click Increase List Level. To decrease an indented bullet point, from the Home tab, click Decrease List Level CHANGING BULLETS AND NUMBERING ON SLIDES When you choose a slide with Content and add text to the bulleted list, you may wish to change the shape of the bullets or change the bullets to numbers. Bullets are useful to draw attention to points of information. Numbering is useful if the points of information need to occur in a particular sequence, i.e. if one step has to follow another. To Change Bullet Shape 1. Highlight the bulleted text that you wish the change 2. From the Home tab, click the arrow at the side of the bullets button 3. Choose shape required a. To look at more options go to Bullets and Numbering... option at the bottom of the popup menu b. Click the shape required Click arrow to see Bullet shape options. 4. Click OK Page 3 of 22

4 To Change Bullet to Numbering 1. Highlight the bulleted text that you wish the change 2. From the Home tab, click the arrow at the side of the Numbering button 3. Choose the number format preferred DELETE A SLIDE 1. Click the slide you no longer require and click Delete from the Home tab CLIPART PowerPoint comes with a large selection of clip art. You can use this clipart to enhance your presentation. Remember do not use too much it draws the focus away from the main points and can make the presentation look cluttered. Hint: less is more. Inserting Clipart You can insert clipart onto any slide, regardless of the slide layout. 1. From the Insert tab, click Clipart 2. On the right hand side of your screen the Clipart pane appears 3. Type keyword(s) of what you wish to search for into the Search for section 4. Click Go - remember that the clipart is limited, so may not have exactly what you are after 5. Click the image you require and see it appear 6. Drag the image to where you would like it to appear on your slide 7. Resize, if necessary, by clicking on the image and dragging the outside points Page 4 of 22

5 INSERT PICTURE FROM FILE You can insert a picture onto any slide, from file, regardless of slide layout. 1. From the Insert tab, click Picture - see the Insert Picture dialog appear 2. Locate where the required file is stored using the Look In section 3. Click on required image 4. Click the Insert Button 5. Drag the image to where you would like it to appear on your slide 6. Resize, if necessary, by clicking on the image and dragging the outside points SMARTART SmartArt is a way to visually represent information in a diagram. There are many styles of diagrams to choose from including hierarchical, cycle, lists, pyramids. This feature has been improved since PowerPoint 2007 and there are more diagrams available. TO INSERT SMARTART 1. Click where you would like your SmartArt object to go 2. From the Insert tab, click the SmartArt button 3. Select the SmartArt style required 4. Click OK - see SmartArt inserted on the slide Note: If you are unsure which style to choose, click on the style and read the style s description on the right hand side. Some styles are more suitable for a diagram with two levels of bullet points. Page 5 of 22

6 WORKING WITH SMARTART To enter text into the SmartArt, either: a) Click into a shape in the SmartArt and type, or, b) Type text in the bulleted list (then see the graphic update with text entered) After the Text is entered, use the SmartArt tools (these are on the 2 extra tabs Design and Format) to create the style required. SmartArt Design Tab: Tip: You can convert an existing bulleted list to smart art by selecting the bulleted list and then right click on the highlighted text and select the Convert to SmartArt option. Choose the smart art design required and see your bulleted text become more interesting please note that some diagrams are more suitable than others depending on the amount of text and bullet levels converted.

Choose a location where you would like to save the Presentation and give it a suitable filename so you remember it. Then click the Save button. Page 6 of 22

7 RUN A SLIDE SHOW A slide show can be run from the beginning of the slide deck or from the current slide. These options are available from the Slide Show tab in PowerPoint. Alternatively, the shortcut key, F5 on the keyboard will run the slide show from the beginning. PROGRESSING THROUGH THE SLIDES To move to the next slide or previous slide, you can use the mouse or press buttons on the keyboard. There are a few different options that do the same thing, use whichever option you prefer to move between your slides: Move to next slide: Left mouse click/enter key press/right cursor key press or Down cursor key press Move to previous slide: Backspace key press/left cursor key press or Up cursor key press To finish the slide show early: press the Esc key in the top left corner of the keyboard Page 7 of 22

11 ANIMATION You can custom animate your slides by using Custom Animations feature. This controls the way text, bullet points or pictures appear on a slide. Remember, do not over use Animation, it tends to lower the professionalism of the presentation and the audience tend to become distracted. Use animation sparingly to draw attention.

Select the object or text that you wish to apply animation to. 2. From the Animation tab, select the animation required from the Animation options on the left hand side. 3.

From the Animation tab, click the Animation Painter 3. Click the object you wish to copy animation to Page 12 of 22

13 SLIDE TRANSITIONS Transition effects determine the way one slide replaces the other. What normally happens is, the first slide disappears and the second slide appears, but there are many other possibilities. For example, the first slide may appear to slip downwards revealing the second slide. Alternatively the second slide may appear to slide over the top of the first slide, covering it up. Note: the transition chosen will affect the way the previous slide is removed and the way the current slide is presented. You can set only one transition per slide. There are a number of new and improved transition styles available to use in PowerPoint 2010, some of which are in a 3-Dimensional format. APPLYING TRANSITION EFFECTS TO SLIDES Transition Tab Advance Slide options Transition Effect Options Apply to All Slides Button 1. Click the Transitions tab 2. Move your mouse over the transitions in the middle of the ribbon. They will automatically preview themselves on your slide. You can scroll down this list if you want to look for more transitions. 3. Find the transition effect that you like and click on it - this will be applied to the current slide. 4. To apply the same transition effect to all slides click Apply to All button to the left hand side of the transitions on the Animations tab. ADVANCING SLIDES On the Transitions tab you can choose to advance the slides by mouse click or after a set time. Most presenters use mouse click as it s very embarrassing for the presenter to have their slides advance when they haven t finished with the current topic! The options for advancing slides are at the far right hand side of the Transitions tab. PRINTING SLIDES 1. From the File tab, click Print 2. Select options required: a. Number of copies b. Printer to print to c. Print What e.g. all slides, current slide, custom number of slides d. Print layout e.g. print slides, notes or hand-outs (choose number of hand-outs per page) e. Collation Page 13 of 22

14 f. Colour or Grayscale 3. Click Print button at the top of the print options Page 14 of 22

15 Hand-outs Explained If you are printing hand-outs of your slides for an audience, it is best to choose a suitable layout. Three and Six slides per page are popular options. Nine slides per page is often too many and people struggle to read the slides. Option Details Graphic Hand-outs (2 slides per page) two medium sized slides, one sitting below the other on an A4 portrait page. Hand-outs (3 slides per page) Hand-outs (4 slides per page) Hand-outs (6 slides per page) Hand-outs (9 slides per page) three miniature slides appear on the left of the A4 portrait page, with space to the right of the slides for the students to add notes. four miniature slides fill an A4 page in portrait style, ordered either horizontally or vertically. six miniature slides fill an A4 page in portrait style, ordered either horizontally or vertically. nine miniature slides fill an A4 page in portrait style, ordered either horizontally or vertically.

20 TABLES Tables can hold information and look effective in a presentation. They can break up long parts of slides and be to the point. Be careful not to make the table look too complex, the audience will spend too long trying to read it and not spend any time listening to the speaker.
