14 Lesson Two: Customizing Your Presentation In this chapter, learn how to Format the text Format bullets Alter colors Insert pictures 14 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

15 Formatting Text Using the toolbar can be an inefficient way to make sweeping changes. PowerPoint has a quick command to replace a font throughout the entire presentation. 1. Click on Design on the ribbon bar, a font option should appear to the right. 2. Choose the font you wish to replace and the font you wish to use. 3. Right click to choose Apply to All Slides. Formatting Bullets PowerPoint allows you to have up to five levels of bulleted text. The style of the bullet changes with each level. Each template has its own default bullet shapes and colors. These can be customized if desired. 1. Click in the paragraph you wish to bullet. 2. Press [Tab] or click Decrease Indent on the Formatting toolbar to demote the text one level. Repeat if necessary. 3. Press [Shift] or click Increase Indent on the Formatting Toolbar to promote the text one level. Repeat if necessary. Introduction PowerPoint 15

16 Altering the Color Scheme Use the Slide Color Scheme command when you want to make a global color changes throughout your presentation. 1. The Slide Design task pane will appear on the right. Click on the link to Colors. 2. Right click on the box with the scheme of your choice. 3. Click on either Apply to all slides or Apply to selected slides. 16 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

Click on Design on the ribbon bar or right-click an empty area of the slide and choose Format > Background. 2. Choose a color from the default color palette of the template being used, or click on Format Background for gradient fill, texture fill, pattern fill, or a picture. Click Apply to all or Close when finished. Introduction PowerPoint 17

18 Deleting Template Objects Complicated background graphics on some slide templates may distract from a chart, picture, or organizational chart. PowerPoint allows you to delete these graphics from a given slide, leaving only a background. 1. Go to the slide you wish to clear the background distractions from. 2. Choose Design from the ribbon bar. (Or right-click an empty area of the slide and choose Format Background.) 3. Select Hide Background Graphics. 18 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

19 Adding Graphics 1. Go to Insert > Clipart. The Clipart task pane will appear on the right side of the screen. 2. Type a keyword in the Search for: field. 3.

The results of your search will appear shortly. Scroll through the available objects and double-click on the one you want inserted on your slide. Introduction PowerPoint 19

A green dot appears above the image. 2. Click and drag (in a circular motion) the green dot to rotate the image. 20 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

21 Exercise Two Someone in the office has given you an old PowerPoint presentation to use at an upcoming meeting. Before you use it, you want to change the formatting to enhance it. 1. Open the file Department Presentation Exercise 2 located in your class files. 2. On the first slide, change the font of the title from Times New Roman to Arial and adjust the size to your preference. 3. On second thought, you notice that the presentation uses a lot of Times New Roman and you wish to change it all to Arial. Use the Replace Font command to accomplish this quickly. 4. Change the background of the entire presentation to a solid color of your choice. 5. Add an appropriate ClipArt picture to the title slide, make is small and move it to the bottom right corner of the slide. 6. On the slide with the graph on it, you ll notice that the objects from the template detract from it. Remove the background objects for just this one slide. 7. Save and close the presentation.

22 Lesson Three: Running the Slideshow In this chapter, learn how to Run a slide show Apply transitions Animate slides 22 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

This is how you want to present your information to an audience. 1. Click on the Slide Show button on the top of the screen. 2. Pick one of the Start Slide Show Options. Introduction PowerPoint 23

24 Making Slide Transitions You can enhance your presentation by changing the way the slides come into view on the screen. We have all seen cinema s fade to black. Transitions also give you an extra opportunity to control the pacing of your show. 1. Using the tabs at the top of the Outline pane, switch to the Slides pane. 2. To apply a transition to a limited number of slides, select these slides now. You can select more than one slide at a time by holding down [CTRL] as you click on each one. 3. Go to Animations and The Slide Transition ribbon will appear on the top of the screen. 4. Use this to select the transition and options desired. 5. The scheme is applied immediately to the selected slide(s). To apply this effect to all the slides in the presentation, click the Apply to all Slides button. To remove a transition, select No Transition from the top of the transition list. 24 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

25 Adding Animations Just as you can create transitions from slide to slide, you can also create movement on individual pieces of a slide. This is called animation. 1. Using the tabs at the top of the Outline pane, switch to the Slides pane. 2. To apply an animation scheme to a limited number of slides, select these slides now. You can select more than one slide at a time by holding down [CTRL] as you click on each one. 3. Go to the Animation Tab. The Slide Design task pane will appear on the right. 4. Use the task pane to select the animation scheme desired. Each time you choose a scheme, a preview will be played for you. 5. The scheme is applied immediately to the selected slide(s). To apply this effect to all the slides in the presentation, click the Apply to all Slides button. To delete any animations, choose No Animation at the top of the scheme list. Introduction PowerPoint 25

26 Using Custom Animations 1. Navigate to the slide you wish to animate. 2. Go to the Animation Tab. The Custom Animation task pane will appear on the left. 3. Choose an object on the slide, such as a text placeholder or a graphic. 4. From the task pane, click on Add Effect and choose an effect. A preview will be played for you. 5. Continue to use the task pane to set other animation options such as direction or speed. Each change will result in another preview. 6. Repeat for each object on the slide you wish to animate. Each effect will appear as a list in the task pane in the order it will appear. You can hit Play at the bottom of the task pane to see a preview of all the animations together. You can also use the Reorder arrows to change the animation timings. 7. To remove an effect, select it from the list in the task pane or click on the corresponding number on the slide itself, then hit Remove at the top of the task pane. 26 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

27 Accessing Slideshow Settings 1. Click on the Slide Show/Set Up Slide Show Tab. 2. Select the settings necessary for the type of presentation desired, which slides to display, and how to advance from one slide to the next. Introduction PowerPoint 27

Display a blank black slide, or return to the presentation from a blank black slide. F5 N, ENTER, PAGE DOWN, RIGHT ARROW, DOWN ARROW, or SPACEBAR P, PAGE UP, LEFT ARROW, UP ARROW, or BACKSPACE Number + ENTER B or PERIOD Display a blank white slide, or return to the presentation from a blank white slide. W or COMMA Stop or restart an automatic presentation. End a presentation. Erase on-screen annotations. Go to the next slide, if the next slide is hidden. Set new timings while rehearsing. Use original timings while rehearsing. Use a mouse click to advance while rehearsing. Return to the first slide. Redisplay hidden pointer or change the pointer to a pen. Redisplay hidden pointer or change the pointer to an arrow. S ESC or HYPHEN E H T O M 1+ENTER CTRL+P CTRL+A Hide the pointer and navigation button immediately. Hide the pointer and navigation button in 15 seconds. Display the shortcut menu. Go to the first or next hyperlink on a slide. Go to the last or previous hyperlink on a slide. Perform the "mouse click" behavior of the selected hyperlink. CTRL+H CTRL+U SHIFT+F10 TAB SHIFT+TAB ENTER while a hyperlink is selected 28 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation
