Jan's Working with Presentations

   Format: Exercise PPT 2-2

Ex. 2-2Ex. 2-2You need to use what you just learned, and maybe learn a little more. Complete all parts of the following exercises. Don't forget to backup your Class disk when you have completed the exercises or whenever you stop for the day and saved a document along the way.  





These exercises may use one or more files from the presentations resource files Icon: In Site. Save the changed documents to your Class disk. This keeps the original resource files intact in case you need to start over or another student will be using this same computer.

Change fonts on Slide Master.
Resize and reposition textboxes on slides.

  3. Theme: Apply a theme that looks good to you, like Flow or Celestial - blue green variant.
    The text boxes that are not placeholders do not update.
  4. Change fonts:
    • Slide Master: Change the font for all slide titles to a wide serif font, like Britannic Bold or Renfrew or Broadway.
    • Slide Master: Change the font for the bullet list to Verdana

    • Slides: Change the font of the non-placeholder textboxes to Verdana and Bold.
