How to Use Live Previewing in PowerPoint 2007

PowerPoint comes with live previewing. Thanks to live previewing, before actually applying a change to your PowerPoint slide you can see the results. To turn on PowerPoint live previewing, click the Office button and choose PowerPoint Options. In the Popular category of the PowerPoint Options dialog box, click the Enable Live Preview check box and click OK.

Then just move the pointer over an option in a gallery or drop-down list and glance at the screen. You can see the results of selecting the option. For example, you see a different font or shape color. You can judge whether choosing the option is worthwhile. Live previewing liberates you from repeatedly choosing commands, backtracking, and trying again until you get it right.

Follow these steps to experiment with live previewing:

1

Enter some text on a PowerPoint slide.

Don’t’ worry about the style.

2

Drag over the text.

The text is selected.

3

Click the Home tab.

Here you have access to all sorts of formatting options.

4

Click the Font drop-down list.

The available fonts display.

5

Slowly move your pointer over the options on the Font drop-down list.

As the pointer comes to different font names, the text on your slide changes fonts.
