Demo: Add colors, fonts, and effects with PowerPoint 2007 themes
If you've been using design templates in PowerPoint 2003, you're going to love themes in PowerPoint 2007. Themes pull together color schemes, font styles, and effects into appealing design packages that you can apply to many types of presentations.
Now that your presentation is finished, you're ready to get it out to your intended audience. The Package for CD feature in PowerPoint 2007 makes this task fast and easy for you. This demo steps you through the process and explains helpful options such as packaging for the PowerPoint version your viewers will use, adding linked files, and choosing type fonts. You can make one or more CD copies.
Demo: Place your favorite commands on the Quick Access Toolbar
There's a fast way to put the commands and buttons you use most often within easy reach*— put them on the Quick Access Toolbar. This row of buttons above the Ribbon already contains several buttons by default, but you can add new commands. The demo shows you two ways to do this, as well as how to remove them later if you want to.
PowerPoint 2007 contains several built-in themes, which include theme colors, theme fonts, and theme effects. Whether you use an existing built-in theme, create a new theme, or modify an existing built-in theme, follow this procedure to apply a theme to your presentation.
Add or delete a fill, outline, or effect for text or WordArt
You can change the look of your text or WordArt by changing its fill, changing its outline, or adding effects, such as shadows, reflections, glows, or three-dimensional (3-D) rotations or bevels. In Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, you can also make these changes to text on a slide.
A theme is a quick and easy way to give a professional and modern look to an entire 2007 Microsoft Office system document. A document theme is a set of formatting choices that include a set of theme colors, a set of theme fonts (including heading and body text fonts), and a set of theme effects (including lines and fill effects).
A PowerPoint photo album is a presentation that you can create to display your personal or business photographs. You can add effects that include attention-grabbing slide transitions, colorful backgrounds and themes, specific layouts, and more.
Set new formatting defaults for a shape or text box
You can change the formatting defaults associated with a shape, text box, or other object and then make your changes the new defaults for all shapes, text boxes or other objects that you add. For example, you can change the fill color, weight of lines that make up the border of a shape, or the fonts used in a text box.
When you add pictures, shapes, or other objects to your documents, they automatically stack in individual layers as you add them. This article tells you how to move individual pictures, shapes, or other objects or objects in a stack. For example, you can move objects up or down within a stack one layer at a time, or you can move them to the top or bottom of a stack in one move.
You can change the look of your shape by changing its fill or by adding effects, such as shadows, glows, reflections, soft edges, bevels, and three-dimensional (3-D) rotations to it. You can also change or remove the outline or border of the shape.
A text box is an object that you can add to your 2007 Microsoft Office system document to emphasize or set off text. Check out the new demo at the bottom of the article to show you exactly how to delete a text box from your document.
This article now contains a new demo that shows you exactly how to change or delete a placeholder. Placeholders are boxes with dotted borders that hold content in its place on a slide layout. You can change a placeholder by resizing it, repositioning it, or changing the font, size, case, color, or spacing of text within it. You can also delete a placeholder.
Create new or reuse existing PowerPoint 2007 templates
This article now contains a new demo that shows you exactly how to create and reuse PowerPoint 2007 templates. A PowerPoint 2007 template is a pattern or blueprint of a slide or group of slides that you save as a .potx file. Templates can contain layouts, theme colors, theme fonts, theme effects, background styles, and even content.

Microsoft's Shellie Tucker reports in this Office Hours column, "Could we give a PowerPoint presentation and use NO BULLET POINTS? Could we divorce ourselves from the tried and true — and deadly boring? We decided to try."
