In PowerPoint, the Slide Master influences the layout and look of all slides in your presentation. One of the changes you can make to your Slide Master is applying the Background Style used so that all slide layouts and actual slides in your presentation use a different slide background. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can choose from any of the 12 available Background Styles to apply to the Slide Master.
Continuing our series of tutorials on PowerPoint 2013, we look at the not so obvious differences between text placeholders and text boxes. We teach you how you can create outlines in Word 2013, and then import the outline content as new slides within PowerPoint. PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users can learn about adding Headers and Footers on their slides, and also on their Notes and Handout pages. Finally, we combined all our Pushpin graphics to make a single large collection -- including all colors and variations, you have 35 pushpin graphics that you can use on your slides.

These "pushpin" graphics are already placed in PowerPoint slides - just copy them and paste within your slides to create a look that makes a picture, shape, or anything else appear as if it has been pushed onto a surface, board, or wall with a pin! These ready-made pushpins are already within PowerPoint slides -- and have been provided in five colors. Just copy them and paste them on your slides.
Creating outlines for PowerPoint in various external applications lets you stay away from distractions in PowerPoint-land and concentrate on the structure of your slides rather than their appearance. Once you have the outline created, it's very easy to import it in the form of slides into PowerPoint. While this import process works the same way in all versions of PowerPoint, there are small interface changes.
Similar to how you can add Headers and Footers to your slides, you can also add Headers and Footers to your Notes and Handout pages. Different from the slides which are primarily presented through a display device such as a monitor or a TV screen or a projector, Notes and Handouts are essentially intended for printing. Let us explore how to add Headers and Footers to make your printed Notes and Handout pages look more professional and useful.
An outline encompasses the text content within your presentation slides. In some ways, this text is the story of your presentation. In a less poetic description, you may just describe the outline as the sequential structure of text content that you use in a presentation. Whatever description you prefer, the outline does form an ideal starting point for a bunch of slides! PowerPoint can import outlines created in many applications and we have already shown you how you can create outlines for PowerPoint presentations in Word 2010 and Word 2007. In this tutorial, we'll explore the procedure of creating a structured outline in Word 2013.
In this issue, we introduce a collection of Map Pin graphics -- while you can use these for maps, you are free to use them anywhere else you need a pin graphic! Patrice-Anne Rutledge discusses her new book, PowerPoint 2013 Absolute Beginner's Guide. We also bring you a great offer in partnership with PowerFinish -- something that has been a very successful promo in past years. Finally, you can learn about the super amazing hierarchial Guide options in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows -- also learn about best practices for working with Guides. For PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users, we continue looking at the cool stuff you can do with videos (movie clips).
The terms Header and Footer arrived from the word processing programs. These denote repeated elements that show at the top and bottom of every page. Headers and Footers are different from each other on PowerPoint slides only considering their position -- the Footer is a line of text that usually appears at the bottom of a slide.
When you explore text containers in PowerPoint, you'll find that there are essentially three kinds: text placeholders, text boxes, and shapes -- we explain shapes in our comprehensive section on Shapes tutorials -- let us now look at the other two text container types. Aren't text placeholders and text boxes the same? Are they really different? And why should we bother even if they are different? All these are valid questions, and the answers to them form one of the most important foundations in learning to create more structured presentations. We will now explore the relationship between text boxes and text placeholders in PowerPoint 2013.
These "map pin" graphics are already placed in PowerPoint slides - just copy them and paste within a slide that already contains a map to create a look that lets you highlight a location on your map! Other than maps, you can also use these map pins like regular push pins so that a picture, shape, or anything else appears as if it has been pushed onto a surface, board, or wall with a pin!
In PowerPoint, there are plenty of options to enhance your movie clips -- these may make your original movie clip appear entirely different from what you started with! The fact that you can make your movies look so different in PowerPoint 2011 with customizations galore can sometimes prove to be a disadvantage, especially if you want to get rid of all customizations and get back to original state of your movie clip. Fortunately, the Reset option is just what you need at this point of time!

Let's start with the basics -- what are Guides? Consider Guides as a Grid on your slide that you create -- each single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on -- once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you using techniques explained on this page.
