Working with Slides and Layouts PowerPoint slides may include text, drawings, charts, outlines and/or graphics. Each PowerPoint slide is made up of different placeholders. The AutoLayout dictates how these placeholders are arranged on a slide. There are three types of placeholders in a PowerPoint slide: A title placeholder, an imaginary box that holds the title of the slide. A text placeholder holds other text, like a bullet list lines, or paragraph text. An object placeholder holds objects such as graphics, charts, media clips, etc. Slide Layouts When you are creating a new presentation or editing an existing one, slide layouts are useful in helping you choose how you want your slide to look like. A PowerPoint slide layout contains placeholders where you can type titles or bulleted lists and insert objects like charts, pictures, and videos. Placeholders are easy to use because each is labeled clearly. Just follow what is written and youll be done with your presentation in no time! To apply a slide layout, select Slide Layout on the Task Pane list. Select the layout you want to apply to your slide by clicking on a layout. You can apply different layouts on different slides or you can select all slides in your presentation and apply a single slide layout.
