Changing the Slide Layout to Suit Your Needs

It is important to remember that you are not limited to the layout of a slide as it first appears. You may add, move or remove text boxes or other objects at any time on any slide.

The short animated clip above shows how to move and resize text boxes on your slide.

The four slide layouts mentioned in this tutorial -

  • Title
  • Bulleted List
  • Double Bulleted List
  • Content Layout

are the most commonly used slide layouts in a presentation. Other available slide layouts are mostly combinations of these four types. But again, if you can't find the layout you want, you can always create it yourself.
