Notes Master View
Each slide in your PowerPoint deck can have some notes associated with it -- and these are placed in the Notes Pane area. Do you want to print
all these slide notes? Yes, you can -- however very few people realize that you can print these notes in the form of a properly structured Notes
Page. This might be among the least used PowerPoint options -- but this certainly is among the most useful ones!
Slide Show View
Have you created all your slides -- and now you want to show it in front of an audience? Or you just want to use this slide deck in a webinar,
or even see them yourself to understand how they look in full screen view? In that case, the view that plays your presentation in full screen
mode is Slide Show view.
When working with multiple slide objects, you should have a visual cue about where you are placing slide objects. You can get exact coordinates
of your slide objects using the positioning options in PowerPoint -- but most of the time, you just need an approximate idea of where your
objects are placed -- and this can be easily obtained by using the Rulers option available in PowerPoint. By default, the Rulers may not be
visible, but when made visible -- they are located on the top and left parts of the active slide.
PowerPoint's Gridlines help you position your slide objects more precisely. Along with Rulers and Guides, Gridlines let you position and snap
slide objects in place so that you can easily line a set of slide objects uniformly. We will learn more about how you can work effectively
with gridlines in this tutorial.
Like Gridlines, Guides also allow you to position and snap your slide objects in place. For most professional slide designers, creating slides
without guides would be very worrisome! When guides are enabled for the first time within PowerPoint, you can just see two guides by default.
These guides are two dotted lines, one horizontal and the other vertical. They span to intersect exactly at the center of the slide.
