Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Chapter 3: Create and manage slides

Insert new slides When you create a new slide, PowerPoint inserts it after the currently active slide. In a new presentation based on a standard PowerPoint template, a slide you add after the title slide has the Title And Content layout, and a slide added after a slide other than the title slide has the layout of the preceding slide.

The Title And Content layout accommodates a title and either text or graphic content—a table, chart, diagram, picture, clip art image, or media clip If you want to add a slide that has a different layout, you can select the layout when you insert the slide or you can change the slide layout after you create the slide.

To add a slide based on the default slide layout 1. Select the slide after which you want to add the new slide. 2. Do either of the following:

● ● On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the New Slide button (not its arrow).

Press Ctrl+M .

● ●

TIP  You can reset slide content to the slide layout defaults by clicking the Reset button in the Slides group on the Home tab. If you add content to a slide and then realize that the content would work better with a different layout, you can change the slide layout by clicking the Layout arrow in the Slides group, and then clicking the slide layout you want to apply.
