INTRODUCTION

As you learned in Part 2, you can use design templates to add color and backgrounds to your presentation. A design template is simply a preformatted color scheme, font style, and background for a presentation. You can use the Slide Design pane to try out other design templates.


TIP

Selecting Multiple Slides

To select multiple slides in the Slides tab, press and hold the Ctrl key while clicking on each slide you want to select.


TIP

Task Pane Help

To learn more about working with the Task pane, see Part 1.


To control how a design is applied, move the mouse pointer over the design to display a drop-down arrow, then click the arrow.

Click Apply to Selected Slides to apply the design to the current slide, or click Apply to All Slides to apply the design to all the slides.

PowerPoint applies the new design. In this example, the design is applied only to the selected slide.
