Chapter 2. Creating a New Presentation > Starting a New Presentation

Starting a New Presentation

PowerPoint offers several ways to create a new presentation. Before you begin, decide which method is right for you:

  • The AutoContent Wizard offers the highest degree of help. It walks you through each step of creating the new presentation. When you're finished, you have a standardized group of slides, all with a similar look and feel, for a particular situation. Each slide created includes dummy text that you can replace with your own text.

  • A design template provides a professionally designed color, background, and font scheme that applies to the slides you create yourself. It does not provide sample slides.

  • You can also start a new presentation based on an existing presentation. This “copies” all the slides in the existing presentation and allows you to save the new presentation under a new filename.

  • You can start from scratch and create a totally blank presentation. That means that you build the presentation from the ground up and create each slide in the presentation. (Beginners might want to use the wizard or templates until they get a feel for the overall design approach used to create a cohesive slide presentation.)
