Go Widescreen in PowerPoint 13
Do you want to turn your slideshows into the modern era with a 16:9 Widescreen Layout?
If we wave a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, we can make our slides also 16:9 too. Below is described how it can be done.
First of all we must select the Design tab and from the right area of the ribbon we locate the Customize area as shown in the image below.
Then if we select the Slide Size button, the drop down menu appears with the following commands:
Custom Slide Size…
(Aspect ratio of an image describes the proportional relationship between its width and its height)
If we select one of the above commands the Microsoft PowerPoint notification window appears, informing us that We Are Scaling To A New Slide Size. Would We Like To Maximize The Size Of Our Content, Or Scale It Down To Ensure It Will Fit On The New Slide?
We can press the Maximize or the Ensure Fit button as we can see below. We can always press the Cancel button at the bottom right area of the window, just in case we changed our mind.
If we want to change our Slides Size in a different dimension, we can always select the Slide Size command and from the drop down menu that appears to select the command Custom Slide Size. Once selected the Slide Size dialog box appears offering us many more slide sizes.
In the Slide Size window we can always change the Width, Height, the Numbering of our Slides. We can change the Orientation of our Slides or the Orientation of our Notes, Handouts & Outline. Once we have finished with the adjustments we just press the OK button and that is it.
Below you can check out the video describing the Widescreen feature in PowerPoint 13.
