INTRODUCTION

If you customize your slide background and get it just the way you want it, you can save your work and reuse the same settings again. To do so, save the customized background as a slide design template and then apply the design to other presentations as needed. Customized designs are saved by default to the Template folder.

TIP

Storing the Template in My Documents

You can save your template in any folder, but you will need to use the Browse feature to locate the template and apply it to your slides. It's faster to keep templates stored in the Templates folder.
