Formatting layouts

The formatting techniques are all regular PowerPoint techniques. A few particularities are highlighted.

Step 1: Layout view

  1. Click <Toggle agenda layout view> on the ribbon


Step 2: Move unused items off the layout's printed area

Move items which you do not want to use off the printed area to the right hand, for example:

  • the entire header row
  • any of the optional columns (owner, slot, span)
  • the white or grey pointer boxes (for highlighting the current section)

Step 3: Position the layout

  • Top position of the agenda table on the slide is determined by the header row on the layout (if you do not use headers, then it is the first row)
  • Row space: The distance between the header row and the first row will be applied to all other rows
  • Left position of boxes will show on the slides as in the layout
  • Height and width of boxes will show on the slides as in the layout

Step 4: Apply formats to the layout

Apply format to the boxes using the regular PowerPoint techniques (e.g. fill, line and font color, font size)

Each of the three outline levels has two rows: regular and highlighted. Formatting of the boxes will be applied to all items of the respective level.

Note: To apply your layout changes to the slides, you have to run <Update Divider Slides> again!
