2 Getting started To begin 1. Open PowerPoint. In the Waikato Management School computer labs; Click on the icon on the taskbar near the bottom of the screen. Alternatively navigate from the Start button, move to the Microsoft Office folder and then select Microsoft PowerPoint A PowerPoint screen appears. 3. Every new PowerPoint presentation starts with a Title Slide. To enter the contents on the slide, simply follow the instructions on the screen. Enter a title and some text in the appropriate places. Adding another slide 1. Go to the Home tab and within the Slides group click on New Slide icon. 2. A Title and Content, the most common slide layout, automatically appears. Another way of inserting a new slide is in the Slides tab found near the left of the screen.

By default, the new slide's layout and theme will be the same as the preceding slide except after a Title slide. Hint: There are two ways to use the New Slide button: If you click the top part of the button, where the slide icon is, a new slide is immediately added beneath the slide that is selected on the Slides tab. If you click the bottom part of the button, you get a gallery of layouts for the slide. You choose a layout, and the slide is inserted with that layout. Creating a bulleted list 1. The default formatting for text is a bulleted list. 2. To complete the new slide: Click in the Title box and type in (for example): Click in the next text box. Type in: Product Press the Enter key.

7 Adding some pizzazz Choosing a theme A theme supplies the look and feel of the presentation design and gives your presentation a consistent appearance. Themes include preset fonts, colour combinations, formatting effects, and backgrounds. To choose a theme for your presentation: 1. Go to the Design tab, then the Themes group. 2. Rest the pointer over a theme thumbnail the temporary preview appears on the slide. 3. Select the desired theme by clicking on it the theme is applied to all your slides. You can also apply the theme only to the slides you have selected simply rightclick on the theme. 4. Experiment! Changing a theme Customising a theme allows you to change fonts, backgrounds, formatting effects, and colours. When you change a theme, the changes are implemented on all slides in the presentation. Changing the colour scheme Every design theme is associated with a colour scheme. You can apply a new colour scheme. 1. Go to the Design tab, then the Themes group and select a theme. 2. To change the colour scheme for the theme, in the Themes group, click the Colors command 3. The scheme will be applied to all the slides.

From the Themes group, click the Fonts command and select a font combination. 3. The font set will be applied to all the slides. Changing the formatting effects Creating a slide show 7

8 Theme effects are sets of lines and fill effects. You can specify how effects are applied to your charts, SmartArt graphics, shapes, pictures, tables, WordArt, and text. To change the effects for the theme 1. Go to the Design tab, then the Themes group and select a theme. 2. From the Themes group, click the Effects icon and select an effects set. 3. The effects set will be applied to all the slides. Changing the slide background To change background for the theme: 1. Go to the Design tab, then the Themes group and select a theme. 2. From the Themes group, click the Background Styles command and select a background. 3. The background is applied to all the slides. To change the background of a particular slide: 1. From the Background Styles command choose Format Background 2. A Format Background dialog box appears. 3. Choose from the options available and click on Close 4. The background is applied only to the current slide. If you click on Apply To All the background is applied to all slides in the presentation. Hint: You can also choose to omit any background graphics that are part of the slide master (see below) by clicking on the box next to Hide Background Graphics in the Background group. This can be useful if the background elements interfere with other items on a particular slide. Changing the slide master If you want to add an element, such as a logo or the name of the presentation, on each slide, then you can do so by placing it on the slide master. Similarly, changing, for example, the font size and style of all the headings in a presentation is done through the slide master. The slide master holds placeholders for items that appear on all slides in a presentation. To change the slide master: 1. Go to the View tab and within the Master Views group choose the Slide Master option. 2. The window changes to the Slide Master view and the Slide Master tab is displayed. 8 Microsoft PowerPoint 2010

In the Slides pane on the left, select the Slide Master (slide 1) For example, to make all bullet list text 24 point, Arial font simply format the slide master as you would design and format a normal slide. Any formatting changes that you make to this first slide will be applied to all master layouts in this slide master. 4. Edit the layout of the other slides if desired. 5. From the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View 6. The changes you made to the slide master are applied to all slides. Animation effects Various animation effects can be used in a slide show. Slide Transition In a slide show, you can control the transition i.e. how one slide moves off the screen and the next slide appears for example, one slide can dissolve into another. To apply a transition: 1. In Normal view, go to the Transitions tab. 2. In the Transition to This Slide group, select a transition from the gallery. Some transitions have different options for effects. To see them, click on the Effect Options icon. To apply your selected transition effect to all slides in the presentation, click on the Apply to All icon in the Timing group. Animating text and objects You can animate text, graphics, diagrams, charts, and other objects on your slides so that you can focus on important points and control the flow of information. For example, you can start with the first major bullet point on a slide, and then show the rest of the bullet points as the presentation proceeds, in effect building the slide. You can choose whether previous points dim as new points appear, and what effect you want to use for the appearance of each new bullet point. You can apply a preset animation scheme to items on all slides, selected slides, or some items on the slide master. Or, for more control over animation effects, use the Custom Animation Task Pane. Preset animation schemes 1. To apply a preset animation scheme to a slide (for example a bullet point slide): In Normal view, go to the Animations tab. Click into the area you want to animate, for example, in the bullets. In the Animation group, choose an animation from the options available. The animation effect is applied to the selected slide. Creating a slide show 9

14 Duplicating Objects Often, once you have created a shape or a line, or a text box, you can save time by copying these objects and editing them, rather than creating new objects. If you hold down the Ctrl key as you drag an object the object will be duplicated. Changing the order of objects 1. You can change the order of objects that are wholly or partly on top of one another. Select the object. Select the Format tab and from the Arrange group choose one of the options. The Bring Forward item moves the object forward one level. Click on the arrow to access the Bring to Front option. The Send Backward item moves the object back one level. Click on the arrow to access the Send to Back item. 2. You can also right-click an object and choose from the Bring to Front and Send to Back menu options. Rotate or Flip an object 1. To rotate an object to any angle: Select the object and drag its rotate handle (ie the circle place holder near the top of the object) in the direction you want to rotate it. Click away from the object to set the rotation. You can also right-click an object and choose Size and Position from the short menu which appears. A Size and Position dialog box appears. From the Size menu under Size and rotate and Rotation, you can enter an exact angle. 2. To rotate 90 degrees to the right or 90 degrees to the left: Click on the object to select it. Choose the Format tab and from the Arrange group click on the Rotate icon. Choose Rotate Right 90 or Rotate Left To flip an object: Click on the object to select it. Choose the Format tab and from the Arrange group click on the Rotate icon. Choose Flip Vertical or Flip Horizontal Grouping objects When you group objects, you combine them so you can work with them as though they were a single object. You can flip, rotate, and resize, move or scale all objects in a group as a single unit. You can also change the attributes of all objects in a group at one time - for example, you might change the fill colour or add a shadow to all objects in the group. Or, you can select an item within a group and apply an attribute, without ungrouping. You can also create groups within groups to help you build complex drawings. Grouping objects reduces the chance of accidentally moving some parts of 14 Microsoft PowerPoint 2010

15 your drawing. You can ungroup a group of objects at any time and then regroup them later. 1. To group two or more items: Select the objects you want to group.

Arranging, aligning and distributing objects You can line up two or more drawing objects by their edges, centres (horizontally), or middles (vertically). You can also align one or more drawing objects relative to the slide page. You can distribute drawing objects equal distances from each other vertically, horizontally, or in relation to the slide. To see the options, select the objects, and from the Format tab, within the Arrange group click on the Align icon. Speaker notes Notes pages can be used to script your presentation and rehearse your talk. Each notes page has an image of the slide, and below that an area for any text and or prompts you may need during your presentation. Use your notes to elaborate on the points on a slide. 1. To add notes, go to the View tab, then the Presentation Views group, and select the Notes Page icon. Type your notes in the notes pane, below the slide. You can enlarge the notes pane and reduce the size of the slide image by dragging. 2. Your notes are saved in the notes pages when you save the file. 3. To print the notes pages: Handouts Click the File tab and choose Print Under Settings, Slides:, from the first box, choose Notes Pages Click on Print Handouts can be created showing miniature versions of your slides. You can also add extra text and graphics to the handout sheets. When you print handouts, you can print two, three, four, six or nine slides per page.
