- Video: Customize master layouts. Watch this video to learn how to customize the slide master by customizing master layouts. PowerPoint provides many default layouts, some of which you'll use, and some of which you can delete to keep things simpler.
- Video: Create a new slide master and layouts. By customizing slide masters, you can create precisely the presentation design and layouts you need. If you want a section of your presentation to look different from the rest of the slides, with its own layouts, create an additional slide master for that section.
