Module Two: Working with Presentations

This module will cover some of the specific tasks you can do using the new Backstage view. First, it is important to save your work regularly to protect your work. The Backstage view allows you to open an existing file from anywhere on your computer or network. You can also easily open presentations you have recently opened. This module will also cover creating a presentation from a template. Finally, this module discusses how to close a presentation when you have finished working on it.

The Backstage view returns to the background after the each operation is complete.

Use the following procedure to insert a table.

  2. Select Table.
  3. Highlight the number of rows and columns that you want to insert.

You may have noticed the Table Tools tabs that appear when you inserted your table. These contextual tabs are used throughout Office 2010/2013. The appropriate tab appears, depending on which type of object you are using.

Modifying Rows and Columns

When PowerPoint inserts a table, it uses default settings to determine how wide or tall to make the columns and rows. You can easily adjust the rows and columns by dragging them to a new width or height. You can add or remove rows or columns at any time.

Use the following procedure to modify rows and columns.

Formatting a Table

PowerPoint includes a number of pre-defined styles to format your table. Alternatively, you can define your own shading, borders, and other effects. The Table Style options allow you to draw attention to your information in different ways.

Use the following procedure to format a table.

  1. Select the table you want to format.
  2. Use the Table Style options to add special formatting to the Header Row, Total Row (last row), First Column, or Last Column. The Banded Rows and Banded Columns alternate the shading.
