When creating a new presentation, there are things to consider as you develop your content.Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 can help you with this process. There are various elements to a presentation that make looking at your slides interesting. Bulleted lists, the use of clip art, charts and diagrams, organization charts and tables, and media clips or pictures. All of these items are considered graphic objects, and are separate from the text objects that you enter. Objects can be moved from one part of a presentation to another. You can also resize, move, and delete them.
As you develop your presentation, there are a few things to keep in mind ”keep the text easy to read and straight to the point, make sure it isn't too wordy, and have a balance of text and graphics. Too much text can lose your audience while too many graphics can distract their focus on your presentation.
PowerPoint offers many tools to help you develop your text. Using the AutoCorrect feature, text is corrected as you type. A build-in Thesaurus is always a few keystrokes away, and a research option that allows you to look for information is available in PowerPoint or has links to the Web.
Once you've begun to enter your text, you can adjust the spacing, change the alignment, set tabs, and change indents. You can also format your text by changing the font style or its attributes such as adding color to your text. If you decide to enter text in outline form, PowerPoint offers you the Outline pane to jot down your thoughts and notes. If bulleted or numbered lists are your preference, you can enter your ideas in this format. Should you need to rearrange your slides, you can do this in various PowerPoint views.
