The first of these exercises requires a pre-existing PowerPoint
presentation. This presentation may be found on your R: drive, in
nearly the same location in which the previous exercise's documents
were found --- the final folder on the ``trail of folders'' is named
ppt1. Don't forget to do a Save As after you've opened the
Questions for which you are responsible:
Exercise, using an existing presentation (If you get stuck, call me over):
- Describe each of the five presentation views.
- What is a transition? A build?
- What is the purpose of the Look Wizard?
- What are promotion and demotion?
- Start PowerPoint.
- Open the presentation intro.ppt and save it onto your N:
- Choose Slide Show view and run through the presentation.
Note the transition and build effects as you move on to each new slide.
- Use the Look Wizard to change the background design. Also,
use the wizard to add your name and the date to the bottom of each slide.
- Change the title and author on the first slide.
- Insert a new slide and use Auto Layout to select the bulleted
list style. Use Five Different Views as the title. Add these
points as bullets:
- Slide view
- Outline view
- Slide Sorter view
- Notes Pages view
- Slide Show view
- Insert a second new slide and use Auto Layout to select the
text & clip art style. Use The Clip Art Gallery as the title.
Add these points as bullets:
Use demote to make the sub-points. Italicize 1,000. Insert the
Man with too many hats image into the image box.
- Contains more than 1,000 images
- Move and size just like any other Windows object
- Use slide sorter view to place your bulleted list slide after the
Presentations Made Easy slide and then place your text & clip art
slide after the title slide. Add build and transition effects to the two
slides you created. Your builds should dim previous points.
- Switch to outline view and experiment with adding, deleting,
promoting, and demoting points.
