INTRODUCTION

Another way to alter the appearance of your slides is to add header and footer text. You can use header and footer text to display the same information on every slide in your presentation, such as the company name, your name , or the date. Header text appears at the top of the slide, while footer text appears at the bottom of the slide. Header text is limited to the date and time, while footer text can be any text you want to include on the slide.

TIP

AutoContent Wizard Slides

If you used the AutoContent wizard to create a presentation, header and footer text may appear automatically based on the presentation type you selected. Edit the text using the Header and Footer dialog box.

TIP

Editing the Placement of Headers and Footers

To change how header and footer text appears on a slide, or to change their font, you must edit the text objects in the Slide master. Select View, Master, Slide Master to open the Slide Master. You can now make changes to the various text boxes for headers and footers. For example, you can change alignment, remove boxes, or change the font and style. See the next task to learn more about editing the Slide master.
