Test yourself

Complete the following test so you can be sure you understand the material. Your answers are private, and test results are not scored.


When you want to add footers to your slides, how do you begin?

Open Master View, and add the footer placeholders you want to the slide master.

On the Insert tab, click Header & Footer in the Text group.

When you want your footer settings to apply to every slide in the presentation, you click which option?

Apply

Apply to All

How do you keep footers off the title slide?

Delete the text from that slide only.

Select the option Don't show on title slide.

What if you have two slides out of seven to which you want to apply some footer text that reads "Company Confidential." How do you do that?

Select those two slides, enter the footer text in the Header and Footer dialog box, and click Apply.

Select those two slides, enter the footer text in the Header and Footer dialog box, and click Apply to All.

Add a text placeholder to each of those two slides, and type your text in it.

Based on what you remember from working with footer placeholders on the slide master, try this: Say you've got your footers in place but the numbers aren't easy to see because they're so close to part of the graphical design in the slide background. How can you reposition the slide numbers?

It's not an elegant solution, but you can select the placeholder for each slide number and nudge it over, slide by slide.

On the View tab, click Slide Master, and on the slide master drag the slide number placeholder into a better position.

Open the Header and Footer dialog box, and look for a command that lets you reposition the slide numbers.
