Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Types of Points (Vertexes)

Every shape in PowerPoint is a combination of segments (lines) and points (vertexes) -- and these segments and vertexes are only visible within Edit Points mode.

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Add or Delete Points (Vertexes) for Shapes

You have learned what the Edit Points option in PowerPoint is, and how it works. The Points you see and edit give you control over how you want a shape to look appearance-wise. Even then, sometimes you might find it difficult to edit a certain segment (a part of the line between two points) in a shape because there are no points available to manipulate -- or maybe there are far too many points!

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Edit Points for Shapes

When you use any of the shapes available in PowerPoint, you are not limited to what their default appearance looks like. You may want to change a rectangle to a rhombus, or even edit a curved or freeform line differently.

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Change the Default Template

When you launch PowerPoint 2003, it opens an empty presentation of just one slide. Typically this one slide has a title placeholder and another placeholder for a subtitle -- typing any text within these placeholders shows black text over a white slide background. This is the default template PowerPoint 2003 provides -- but you don't have to live with these defaults. You change this blank

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Preserving Slide Masters

Have you ever applied a new Slide Master to existing slides in PowerPoint – and then found that the old Slide Master just disappeared! Poof – how did that happen? The typical answer to that question is your existing Slide Master was not "preserved", and since no slides used it anymore, PowerPoint just decided to clean it up altogether. So if you don't want this to happen again, then you must

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Applying Masters

Once you have applied a template within PowerPoint 2003 that has multiple masters, you can thereafter apply different Slide Masters to the slides in your presentation.

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Keyboard Sequences

Many users are familiar with keyboard shortcuts -- yet there are no real shortcuts for tasks users need to perform all the time -- this includes changing PowerPoint's views or even aligning or reordering slide objects.

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Multiple Slide Masters

Every presentation you create has its own Slide Master, even if you are not aware.

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Notes Master

PowerPoint allows you to print Notes pages -- these contain the notes that you may have saved within the Notes pane for all your individual slides. Unless you modify the Notes Master, your printed Notes pages may look basic.

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Handout Master

Handouts are presentation accompaniments that are almost always intended for print. It is a good idea to distribute handouts before your PowerPoint presentation's delivery so that the audience follow along the presentation.

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Title Master

When PowerPoint 2003 is launched -- or when you create a new presentation -- you typically see the first slide of the presentation.

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Using Masters

Every slide that you see in PowerPoint has its own unique look -- it has a slide background, and the same fonts typically are used on all slides.

Also if you print notes pages or handouts from

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Reapplying Slide Layouts

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar? The title placeholders in your PowerPoint slide may move to another position due to your mouse slipping off your fingers, and you did not realize that until you had already saved the presentation.

Learn PowerPoint 2003: Changing AutoShape in PowerPoint

Once you place an AutoShape on a PowerPoint slide, you may format it by changing its fill or outline -- or you may add animation to it. Later if you realize that you used a wrong AutoShape -- maybe you used a star in place of a triangle, you may be tempted to delete the original AutoShape altogether and start from scratch by adding a new AutoShape, and change its fill and add animation to it.
