Handmade Slides: Pushpins for PowerPoint
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.
All these pushpins can be rotated and resized, as required. Since they are essentially pictures, all types of edits that you can do
with pictures work with them too! To make them stand out, try to use PowerPoint’s built-in shadow effects.
The ZIP file you download contains 7 pushpin graphic variations, each in 5 colors – for a total of 35 pushpin graphics.

Add Headers and Footers in Slides
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.
Add Headers and Footers in Notes and Handout Pages
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.

Text Placeholders vs. Text Boxes
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.
Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Microsoft Word 2013
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.
Import Outlines in PowerPoint 2013
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.
