Chapter 22. Mastering PowerPoint Basics > Customizing the Sample Slides

Customizing the Sample Slides

You now should be familiar with all the PowerPoint screen elements and know how to move between your presentation slides. Now you're ready to learn how to customize the generic presentation. The standard sample text previously generated by the AutoContent Wizard needs to be replaced with your specific information. You may find that editing the outline is the easiest way to go.

Editing the Outline

The AutoContent Wizard's sample text serves as a guide that gives you an idea of what content should be displayed on each slide. These are only suggestions, however; you can display any message you want in your presentation. PowerPoint's Outline view makes editing slide content very easy. Simply type your own words into the presentation outline and delete the sample text created by the AutoContent Wizard. The modified text automatically appears on the appropriate slide. As you type in the outline, the slides will change to reflect your input.
