Discover the power of custom layouts

New Slide gallery and custom layout applied to a new slide

Callout 1 Slide 2 in the presentation before you add the layout
Callout 2 Your custom layout inserted after slide 2

Now that you've created the custom layout with the logo, you can return to Normal view. To do this, on the Slide Master tab, in the Close group, click Close Master View.

Your custom layout is now available for use in this presentation. The easiest way to use your custom layout is to add a new slide to your presentation. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click New Slide, and then click Tropical vacation layout.

If you wanted to use the custom layout only in this presentation, you could stop right here. But to use the custom layout for all of your other presentations as well, you'll save it as a template. You'll see how to do that next.


Tip     To apply your layout to an existing slide, select the slide, and then, on the Home tab, in the Slides group, click Layout instead of New Slide, and then click Tropical vacation layout.
