Learn about the Slide Master View in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.


Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2011

Among the many views that PowerPoint 2011 for Mac includes is the Slide Master view. The Slide Master influences the default text formatting and slide layouts for any slide in a presentation. Any changes you make to the Slide Master and its layouts are instantly applied to the entire presentation. The purpose of this tutorial though is not to teach you how you can modify the Slide Master, but how you can access it, and what the interface looks like.
