Hour 12. PowerPoint 2002 Presentations > Creating a New Presentation

Creating a New Presentation

Figure 12.1 shows the opening window that you see when you start PowerPoint and begin a new presentation. If you close the Slide and Outline tabs window on the left side of the screen, you gain more room to work on the individual presentation slides that appear in the center of the screen.

The New Presentation Task Pane includes an option under the New section labeled From Design Template. Instead of starting to work right away on a blank (and generic) presentation, you can click the option to choose from one of many predefined presentation templates. Click the option now to see your New Presentation Task Pane change to the Slide Design Task Pane as shown in Figure 12.2. The Task Pane displays a list of many presentation style choices, all defined by templates. The idea is that you'll find the style you like, click that style, and your presentation's elements such as headings, background artwork, and fonts will all have a uniform appearance and tone.
