In PowerPoint, all the property fields are saved as metadata. This metadata can be very useful in the cataloging and search of presentations and individual slides. In addition to editing or adding the Property content in Backstage view, you can also bring up the same Properties with the Document Panel, as an interface element within PowerPoint 2013 for Windows which directly appears above the active slide, and below the Ribbon. Additionally, you can use the Advanced Properties option.

Follow these steps to view and edit current presentation properties through the Advanced Properties option in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows:

  1. Open any presentation in PowerPoint that has been saved at least once. Access the File menu to get to Backstage view, and select the Info pane, as shown in Figure 1, below. Within the Properties pane, click the Properties button to bring up a drop-down list, as shown in Figure 1.
  2. Properties drop-down list

  5. Edit any of the properties within the Document Panel as required, such as: adding Authors, changing the Title, Subject, Keywords, Category, etc.
  6. Once done, close the Document Panel by clicking on the X located at the top right corner of the panel. You can see all updated or newly added properties within the Properties pane, as shown highlighted in green within Figure 1, previously on this page.
  7. For more advanced options with regard to presentation properties, you can access the Properties dialog box. To access these advanced options, select the Advanced Properties option, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1, previously on this page.
  8. Doing so brings up the Properties dialog box, as shown in Figure 3, below. Note that the name of the presentation is included as part of the title of the dialog box. This makes it quick and easy to know which presentation you are editing the properties for, especially if you have more than one presentation currently open.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
