In PowerPoint 2007, you can use the layout elements of your slides to better design your presentation, such as using headers and footers to display the necessary information on a slide, using gridlines and rulers to locate objects, and so on.
1. Set headers and footers
When making a slide show, users can use the header Footer feature provided by PowerPoint to add relatively fixed information for each slide, such as adding page numbers, time, company name, and so on in the footer of a slide.
2, the use of grid lines and reference lines
When you add multiple objects to a slide, you can move and resize the relative size and position of multiple objects by displaying gridlines. Display the View tab in the Ribbon, select the Gridlines check box in the Show/Hide group, and the slide effect is shown in Figure 6-28.
3, use the ruler
When the user selects the ruler check box in the Show/Hide group on the View tab, the ruler shown in Figure 6-31 appears on the slide. As you can see from the diagram, the rulers in the slide are divided into horizontal rulers and vertical rulers. Rulers allow users to easily and accurately place text or picture objects on a slide, and they can also move and align those objects, and adjust indents and tabs in the text.
