Business presentations are created every day. Many have to have the same features so that presentations for your company have a consistent "look and feel", with a standard background
-- perhaps with specific company colors, fonts
and even a company logo on each slide
. Sure there are lots of design themes
in the program for you to use and edit, but what if you must always be consistent and use the same starter presentation?
1. Create a New Default PowerPoint Template
The simplest answer -- Create a new default design template of your own. This would replace the plain, white basic template that comes with PowerPoint, and each time you opened the program your customized formatting would be front and center.
2. Create a New PowerPoint Template Design
This is a different than creating a new default template. In this case, the plain, white slide (the original default template) would appear first and you could then apply a new design of your choice.
You can create a new template design of your own, perhaps with your company colors, fonts and logo, and then apply it each time to your new presentation. As soon as you apply this template to any new presentation it will take on the company standard look -- or you can even apply the design to a presentation that is already created.
Does your company have a brand -- perhaps specific colors or a logo? Do you need to show this on every PowerPoint presentation that is created to promote your company? Then why recreate the wheel?
If you have another presentation created already, complete with all the design elements you like, you may simple copy the design template to the newest presentation.
Perhaps you have a current presentation that is designed perfectly with all the right features for your new presentation. By copying those slides over to your new presentation you will already achieve the effect you want. However, be aware that slides already current in the presentation will not take on these design features automatically.
This article shows you different methods to copy slides from one presentation to another. There is no right or wrong way -- just a preference on the part of the presenter
6. Copy Another Presentation
Make a duplicate of another complete presentation, with a design template
or design theme
that you like, and then edit the content.
