  37. Overview: Presentation basics • You've been asked to put together a class activity using PowerPoint, and you have no idea how to begin. • Get equipped with the skills to do the job. Learn what you need to know to put together a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation quickly and with little fuss.

  38. Course goals • Put text and pictures on slides. • Navigate in the PowerPoint window. • Apply a design template. • Arrange slide content by using layouts. • Print handouts and notes. • Prepare to give the show.

  39. Lesson 1 Slides, text, and notes

  40. Slides, text, and notes • There it sits in the middle of the PowerPoint window: a big, blank slide. "Click to add title," says the text on the screen. It sounds easy, but you've never done this before, and the blank canvas is daunting. • Yet you have to start somewhere. A blank slide can be daunting; don't let it be.

  41. Work in the slide area • The window that first opens in PowerPoint has a big working space in the middle, with smaller areas around it. • That middle space is the slide area, officially called the slide pane. The working areas of a PowerPoint window

  42. Work in the slide area • Working in this space, you type text directly onto the slide. The area where you type is a box with a dashed border called a placeholder. All text that you type onto a slide resides in a box like this. The working areas of a PowerPoint window

  43. Work in the slide area • See the image at left. • The slide pane. • On the left is a thumbnail version of the slide you're working on. This area is the Slides tab. • The notes pane. Type notes that you'll use when presenting. The working areas of a PowerPoint window

  44. Add new slides • When PowerPoint opens, there's only one slide in the show. It's up to you to add the rest. Add them as you go or add several at a time, whichever you prefer. Use the shortcut menu to insert a new slide.

  45. Add new slides • There are multiple ways to insert a new slide. See the image at left. Use the Slides tab, the area on the left that contains the slide thumbnail, to add new slides. • Right-click the thumbnail that you want the new slide to follow. • Click New Slide on the shortcut menu. Use the shortcut menu to insert a new slide.

  46. Type text • If you don't want a bulleted list, select the placeholder by clicking its border. Then, click the Bullets button . • Another button on the Formatting toolbar handy for positioning text is the Center button . Text in placeholders

  47. Navigate among slides • Once you have several slides in the show, you'll need to move among them as you add content. The picture shows two ways to do that. • Click the slide thumbnail on the Slides tab… • …to display that slide, or… • Click the Previous Slide or Next Slide button.

  48. Lets practice • Look at the areas of the PowerPoint window. • Type title text. • Add new slides. • Navigate and add more text. • Use text indents and formatting. • See how AutoFit works. • Type and view notes.
