How to Add Recurring Text to All the Slides in Your PowerPoint 2007 Presentation

By Doug Lowe

When creating a PowerPoint presentation, it is often useful to include recurring text or objects in each PowerPoint slide. To add recurring text, follow this procedure:

1Call up the Slide Master.

It resides in the Presentation Views group of the Views tab.

2Add a text box to the Slide Master.

Click where you want to add the text.

3Type the text that you want to appear on each slide.

4Format the text.

For example, if you want bold, click the Bold button on the Formatting toolbar.

5Click the Normal View button to return to your presentation.

You can add other types of PowerPoint objects to the Slide Master, too. You can add clip art, pictures, or even a video or sound clip.
