Chapter 1. Getting Acquainted > Moving Around in PowerPoint

Moving Around in PowerPoint

Although you'll begin to actually open a presentation and move around PowerPoint in Chapter 2, it's important that you understand at the outset the concept of how PowerPoint is organized. In this section, you get an overview of the different views available in PowerPoint, and what each is used for.

PowerPoint offers five views, and each can be used to gain a different perspective on your presentation. To help you understand the function of views, think of a piece of sculpture. To see the entire sculpture you would have to walk around it, viewing it from every angle. In the same way, a presentation which contains text, graphics, annotations, animation, and sound effects has different facets. To work on a particular element, you may want to isolate it so you aren't distracted by all the other elements. That's where PowerPoint views come in.
