Presentations provides a selection of masters to work with in the Master Gallery.
Each master is a set of professionally designed slide layouts and backgrounds that include preset objects, such as titles,
bulleted lists, and charts.
This is an example of the Master Gallery.
A layout is a slide with preset placeholders for objects such as titles, subtitles, bulleted lists, text, data charts, and
organization charts. Each layout has a page format and color scheme that is consistent with the other layouts and
backgrounds that are part of a master.
You can apply preset layouts from the Layout Gallery. Choosing a preset layout allows you to concentrate on the
content of the slide show, rather than on the format.
The preset layouts included in Presentations are listed in the following table.
