PowerPoint 2003 is a complete presentation graphics package. PowerPoint 2003 is a part of Microsoft Office 2003 suite of applications. Microsoft PowerPoint supports many delivery options: on-screen, online, overhead transparencies, paper printouts, and 35mm slides. Word processing, outlining, drawing, graphing and presentation management tools are all designed to be easy to learn and use. Editors, Converters, Filters, and Translators, the Clip Art Gallery, Organization Chart, Ms Graph programs, Media Files and Animated Special Effects are included in the installation. You can enhance your presentation by applying one of PowerPoint's templates (screen background), insert clip art to add graphics, or create diagrams and freehand drawings using the freeform tools and Office Art.


Updated Viewer The PowerPoint Viewer is a program used to run presentations on computers that don't have PowerPoint installed. No installation is required for the new Viewer. Your presentation files, packaged with the new Package for CD feature, include the Viewer by default, or you can download the new Viewer from the Web. In addition, the Viewer supports viewing and printing. The updated Viewer runs on Microsoft Windows 98 or later. Package for CD Make CDs of your presentations for viewing on computers running a Microsoft Windows operating system (formerly known as "Pack and Go"). Package for CD allows you to package your presentations and all of the supporting files, including linked files, and automatically run your presentations from the CD. The updated PowerPoint Viewer is included on the CD when you package your presentations. Therefore, no installation of the Viewer is required on a computer that doesn't have PowerPoint installed. Package for CD also gives you the option of packaging your presentations to a folder instead of a CD for archiving or posting to a network share. Improvements to media playback View and play your movies in full screen presentation with PowerPoint 2003. Right-click the movie, click Edit Movie Object on the shortcut menu, and then select the Zoom to full screen check box. When Microsoft Windows Media Player version 8 or later is installed, improvements in media playback in PowerPoint 2003 support additional media formats, including ASX, WMX, M3U, WVX, WAX, and WMA. If a required media codec isn't present,


PowerPoint 2003 will attempt to download it by using Windows Media Player technology. New slide show navigation tools The subtle and elegant new Slide Show toolbar provides easy access to slide show navigation while you are making a presentation. In addition, common slide show tasks are simplified when the options are at your fingertips. Available functions include: ink annotation tools, pen and highlighter options, and puts the Slide Show menu within easy reach during a presentation, but the toolbar is never obtrusive or obvious to your audience. Improved slide show ink annotations Use ink to mark up your slides while giving a presentation, or draft slides for review by using the ink features in PowerPoint 2003. Not only can you keep the ink that you used in your slide show presentation, but you can turn on or off the slide show markup after you have saved the ink markup in your presentation. (Some aspects of the ink feature require that you run PowerPoint 2003 on a Tablet PC.) New smart tag support Smart Tags allow you to perform functions that you may otherwise open other programs to complete. Simply by selecting AutoCorrect Options on the Tools menu, and then clicking the Smart Tags tab, you can choose to label text in your presentation with smart tags. Dates, financial symbols, and person names are included in the list of smart tag recognizers that ship with PowerPoint 2003. Improved bitmap export Bitmaps are larger and have better resolution when exported. Document Workspaces Colleague collaboration is possible through Document Workspaces to simplify the process of co-authoring, editing, and reviewing documents in real-time through (any of the) Microsoft Office 2003 products. A Document Workspace site is a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services site that is centered around one or more documents. Information Rights Management Prevent sensitive information from getting into the hands of the wrong people, whether by accident or carelessness. Authors use the Permission dialog box (File | Permission | Do Not Distribute or Permission icon on the Standard toolbar) to give users Read and Change access, as well as to set expiration dates for content. Authors can remove restricted permission from a document, workbook, or presentation by simply clicking Unrestricted Access on the Permission submenu or by clicking Permission icon again on the Standard toolbar.

When you open PowerPoint 2003 the following screen appears:

STARTING POWERPOINT WITH A BLANK PRESENTATION You create a new, blank presentation by clicking the File and New or New from the standard toolbar. PowerPoint

generates a new presentation and places you in the Slide Layout pane. A blank presentation starts with slides that have minimum design and no color applied to them. Whenever you have a new blank slide, PowerPoint will prompt you to pick a slide layout. The picture shows the different Text and Content Layouts and when you scroll down you can find other kinds of layouts.



A Design Template is a file that contains the styles in a presentation, the background design, fill and variety of color schemes. It can be applied to a presentation to give it a fully designed, professional look. If you choose Design Template from the PowerPoint New

Presentation pane, PowerPoint transports you to the Slide Design pane, and lets you pick a design for the presentation. Note: Several design templates are lost in transition from PowerPoint 97 to PowerPoint 2003. For links to all the old design the office site is

suggesting the presentation types, styles and options. In the presentation you can replace the text suggestions with the text you want and also make any other changes such as adding or deleting slides, adding animated effects and inserting header and footers.

The above picture is the second step in the Wizard which displays the different kinds of Presentation types in the General category. You can choose the category which is appropriate for your presentation and keep clicking Next to advance to the next steps.



There are 4 views:

1. Normal View

is the main editing view, wherein you can create and

design your presentation. The view has three working areas (panes): On the left is the Outline tab where text is displayed in outline form.

The alternate view is the Slides tab where your slides are displayed as thumbnails on the right. The Slide pane displays a large view of the current slide. You can add text, insert pictures, tables, charts, drawing objects, text boxes, movies, sounds, hyperlinks and animations. On the bottom is the Notes pane where you can add notes that relate to the content of each slide and use them in printed form to refer to as you give your presentation, or create notes that you wish your audience to see (either in printed form or as a Web page). 2. Slide Sorter View is an exclusive view of your slides in thumbnail

form. Slide Sorter View makes it easy to reorder, add or delete slides and preview your transition and animation effects. 3. Slide Show View takes up the whole computer screen, much like

the actual slide show presentation. In this full screen view you will see your presentation the way your audience will. You will see the graphics, sounds, timings, animated effects and transitions as seen in the actual show. 4. Notes Page View creates speaker's notes using the Notes Page

Another easy way to run a presentation is to use the Slideshow dialog box, accessible from the View menu, to set the timings and choose which slides you want to see. You can even choose to run the show over and over in a continuous loop.


Under the Slideshow pull down menu, choose Setup Show. Here you choose the Show type, Show Options, Pen color, the number of slides to be shown, Advance type, slide show resolution etc. To view your presentation, click on View Show from the Slide Show menu or on Slideshow from the View menu.
