|This class picks up where
left off. Major topics in this course include:
- Editing Slides
- Custom Color Schemes
- Custom Bullets & Numbered Lists
- Line Spacing & Tab Stops
- Using Tables
- Object Linking & Embedding
- Speaker's Notes
- Printing Notes, Slides, Handouts
We'll talk more about different techniques for editing slides.
We'll cover custom color schemes, custom bullets, numbered list styles,
line spacing, formatting paragraphs, the format painter, and setting tab
stops so you can control the distance from the bullets to the paragraph
Next we'll cover a very important concept: using
Tables. We'll talk about tables for displaying data, as well as
using them for the layout of your slides. I'll show you how to insert
rows and columns, merge and split cells, change borders and colors, and
more. I'll also show you how to use the pencil and eraser
tools to draw custom tables.
We'll then learn how to take tables from Microsoft
Excel and Paste Link them into PowerPoint so that if the original
data in Excel changes, our presentations are automatically updated (yes,
no more having to update your slides every time you go to a trade show!)
Next we'll talk about Speaker's Notes: what
they are, how to create them, and what they're used for. We'll talk
about printing your notes, and printing your actual slides and handouts.

Nick on 8/26/2009: You can make a picture of the second table and paste it into the spot you want it using the resizing method. That works only the data is not updated like the excel format of tabling and you can't really change the data if it is a picture. Nick|
RICHARD AYAIM on 8/3/2013: Under CLIP ART, how do you import a given picture from the content of microsoft.com|
into a PowerPoint presentation?
Reply from Richard Rost:
Honestly, the easiest thing to do is just find the image you want, right-click on it, select copy, then paste it into your presentation.
