"Discover the PowerPoint 2007 Slide Masters Feature!"


Slide Masters are basically templates that are used to create a new presentation. It contains all of the properties of your PowerPoint presentation slide layouts, themes, effects, animation, backgrounds, text font style and color, date and time, and graphic placement.

When you want to make a change to the look of your slides, you don't have to change each slide individually. Just make the change once on the slide master, and PowerPoint automatically updates the existing slides and applies the changes to any new slides you add. So, your presentation looks more consistent.

PowerPoint presentation contains three masters: slide, notes, and handout. Which master you open depends on what part of your presentation you want to change. The slide master controls all the presentation slides, while the notes master and handout master controls the appearance of all speaker notes pages, and handout pages, respectively.
