Unformatted text preview: PowerPoint Chapter 2 Lecture In chapter 1, we covered the basics for creating presentations, adding interest through design templates, controlling the slide show, and enhancing the presentation through additional tools in PowerPoint. Many of you have probably already created a PowerPoint presentation in other classes or for your job. In chapter 2, we will further explore how to use some additional features of PowerPoint that you may not have had a chance to discover.

As you work through the lab examples, do pay special attention to the text that youre adding to the slides.

Headers and Footers: Headers and footers are useful for including personalization such as the speakers name, company name, slide number, date of presentation, etc. There are two methods for adding headers and footers to a presentation. You may enter header and footer information just like you do in Word through the View | Header and Footer menu items. You should keep in mind that, just like you usually omit headers and footers on the title page of a word-processed report, headers and footers should be suppressed on the title slide. The second method for adding headers and footers is through the...
