The formatting of your slides must be carefully chosen to make your slides easy to read. The combination of colors and shapes and sizes for your text and other objects can help your audience follow along or can interfere.
PowerPoint includes templates and themes to help you format presentations. A template includes sample slides and suggestions for the kind of information to include. A theme changes the Slide Master and its layouts to control the background, placeholders, and formatting for placeholders and text.
You can use a Slide Master to set the placeholders, fonts, transitions, and animations on your slides. You can use multiple slide masters in the same presentation in recent versions of PowerPoint.
Transitions control how one slide replaces another during the presentation. Animations control the entrance, emphasis, exit, and motion path of slide parts. You can adjust many features of most animations, including features like speed, direction, size, and color.
