When you choose a specific template in PowerPoint, you can choose from several pre-made slide layouts. The layouts in your template are determined by the master slide. In this video, we see how to edit the master slide and individual slide layouts, and then we'll save these new layouts as a new template.
- [Instructor] Welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…I'm Nick Brazzi.…In this movie, I want to talk about how you can use…and more importantly, how you can edit master slides…in a template in PowerPoint.…We'll even see how you can save your modified master slides…as a new template…and I'm going to start by creating a new presentation.…I just launch PowerPoint…so I'm going to choose one of these templates…and I'll hit Create…and I'll start building out my presentation.…Okay, we can just sort of pause here.…
I've started building my presentation…and what I really want to do is clarify…what exactly a master slide is.…For that, I'm going to go to this menu in the Home ribbon…to add a new slide…and you can see I have a bunch of options here.…There are several slide layouts available…that I can use as a starting point…for each individual slide that I make…and these are defined by the template that I chose…but I want you to notice that they all…have the same background image.…They also have certain defaults for fonts and colors…
