Design

Theme

Go to the DESIGN tab and choose the 'Ion' theme.

You can choose one of the other 3 color variants...

Your presentation now looks something like this...

Slide Master

Top layout

Go to the VIEW toolbar and click on Slide Master...

Scroll up on the side ...

You want to select the very top layout thumbnail on the left, the one with "1" beside it...

Text box: font size

  1. Click on the border of the text box or just select the first bullet line/text, and
  2. Pump up the font size 1x (so the first line is size "24" instead of "20").

So far your template looks like this...

Heading box: font type & size

On the slide, select the title text (or just click on the text box outline) and change the font type - you can do this with the pop-up box or use the HOME tab. 

Change the font type to one of the following and pump up the size to '54'

Heading box: size

Change the size of the title box using the circles on the bottom and right side:

  • increase width so as wide as can be on the right
  • reduce height so it's not taller than it needs to fit one line of text. 

So the size of the title box should be something like this...

Text box: size & position

Adjust the text box size:

  • pull up the top handle (so it's hugging the title box)
  • pull down the bottom handle so it's closer to the bottom
  • adjust the size handle so the box is narrower, about 1/2 width of slide.

Heading Style

Select the heading box and go to the Format tab. Choose any Quick Style that stands out. You can also play with the Text Fill/Outline/Effects options beside the Quick Styles button.

  • you can also change the fill/outline/effects to make it stand out more, make it more unique
  • if the style makes the font smaller, pump it back up so it fills the title box

What you'll notice is the headings for all the slide layouts are now that font type and style...

Title slide layout

Select the 2nd layout thumbnail on the left. Then select the title box and pump up the font size 3 times so it's size '96'.

Close Slide Master View

Go back to the Slide Master tab and "Close Slide Master View.

When you are back in normal view on Slide #1, you'll see the heading is what you set in the Slide Master.

"The End": slide layout

Go to your last slide, go to the Home toolbar and change the Layout to "Title Slide".
