UPBEAT – PowerPoint and Google Slides Template Plus How to Create a Master Slide

We I thought why don’t I give a PowerPoint tool tip or trick with each Presentation template. It would be more useful for you guys so let’s start with our first tip. Now you would have heard about Master Slide, so what is a Master slide, how does it work, why should we use Master Slide. But first a little about this template. Well it’s a Memphis design which I love. As usual it is available as both PowerPoint and Google Slides template. It has thirteen predesigned Master slide layouts which are the best thing about our presentation templates. You don’t need to copy slides again and again you just need to go New Slide on Home tab and select a layout you like. The thirteen master layouts contain Tile Slide layout, Title plus 1,2 and 4 text columns with picture holders, Break slide layout and Quote Slide layout.

All you want to know about PowerPoint Master Slide

Well let’s start which What is a Master Slide, to be very specific, if you want a logo, company name, contact details or a design element on all your slides you can use the Master slide. Now to view the master slide you go to the VIEW tab and then click on Master Slide in Master Views, on the Left side of the top menu ribbon. After clicking on Master slides you’ll see all the slides and the slides list on the left slide have changed. The slide on the very top is called Master Slide, all slides below are call Master layouts. If you want to place a logo etc. on all slides at once just place it on the Master Slide and you are done you would not need to place the logo or a design element on all the slides one by one.

    Now what are Master Layouts? These are pretty fun things you know. Any presentation has a specific type of content combination in its slides such as, a text box plus an image, or two text boxes and two images and a video or a text box a graph and an image, a slide can also contain just a picture, or smart art or a flowchart. These are all different content combination any presentation will have so Master layouts are there to predesign these layouts and insert them whenever you want one in a presentation. The purpose of this is to save time designing same type of slides or copying the design elements again and again.
