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

Master Layout

Scroll up on the side ...

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


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 to one of the following and pump up the size to '54'

Heading Style

Select the heading box and go to the Format tab. Then choose a Quick Style...

  • 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...

Heading box: size

Change the size of the title box using the circles on the bottom and right side. Hover over the circle and when you get a 2-pointed arrow, click and drag to change the size:

  • 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. 

Text Box

Font type & size

Select the first bullet line/text inside the text box...

Then either use the toolbox that pops up or go to the HOME toolbar and:

  1. change the font type to 'Bookman Old Style' and
  2. pump up the size 2x (so it's size '28')

Box size

Adjust the text box size: using the top and bottom corner handles, or:

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

Close Slide Master View

You can continue on to the next step/page, or you can first see how it looks, going back to Normal View by click on the button on the bottom of your window...

... or you can 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.
