Headers and Footers

Headers and footers, where you can put information like date, time, title, and so on, aren't included in any of the preset slide designs. However, you can add them relatively easily.

Adding a Header or Footer to a Current Document

1.
Go to Background view as shown at right. Then click the Layer icon to display the name or names of the background or backgrounds in the presentation.

  • To put the header or footer in only one of your backgrounds, stop now. Click on the name of the background that you want to add the header or footer to; in the illustration at right, the lyt-harmony background is selected so all headers and footers you add now will show up only in slides where that background is used.

  • To put the header or footer everywhere in your presentation, period, click on the third icon, Layer, so that the tab Background Objects appears as shown at right.

2.
Use the Text icon to draw a text box below the slide.

3.
Choose Insert > Fields and select the type of information you want to insert, or type additional information.
