Altering the layout of a master slide in Microsoft PowerPoint can help you organize information on your slides better. Since it’s a master slide that’s being adjusted, the changes are made across all of the slides in the presentation that use that master slide.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at the master slides … and update their appearance. … This'll make it a lot easier to apply a global change. … To start, click on the view menu … and then select the option here for slide master. … This'll change everything … and allow you to make some global changes … to the slides overall. … Now, what I want to do is apply a change to the fonts. … I'll come to the font section here and click, … and I want to standardize here on the Century Gothic. … This was used on the fonts already, … but only for the titles, not the body. … Now that I apply, it updates. … And you see if we switch to the other slides, … that global font family has been applied consistently, … which is great. … Now let's make a few changes. … We'll select the top title here … and click bold and bounce this up to 40 points. … You'll notice as we make that change … that it's applied in other places in the presentation. … PowerPoint, generally speaking, … will find similar instances and apply it. …
