Computer Concepts - Creation of Presentation
A presentation is made up of number of slides that are displayed in a sequence. Each slide has sub-topics and different content related to the given topic.
Creating a presentation using a template
A template is a presentation that has a pre-defined theme and format. Templates are readily available design structures. There are two types of templates: design and content templates. A design template automatically gives final look of your presentation. The content template is used to include text and graphics.
To create a presentation using template, select File → New → and select desired template.
Creating a Blank Presentation
A blank presentation has no pre-formatted designs or colors. Every required element in the presentation has to be created or inserted specifically by the user.
To create a blank presentation, select File → New → Blank presentation.
Entering and editing text
To enter text in a slide, insert a new slide.
A slide has two sections −

Editing text refers to the changing of text size, style, color, indentation, etc.
