Edit Master

We want our students to learn graphic design and apply those principles to the yearbook. Of course, to save time this means learning how to Edit the master.

The example below is a SlidesCarnival.com template modified for a yearbook layout. Use the arrows to view the step by step directions. These directions are listed below the content slider.

  1. Change the Page setup size.
  2. Delete all the slides.
  3. Go to Slide -> Edit master.
  4. Control the font type and size from the Master page.
  5. Right-click to Delete and Duplicate layouts as desired.
  6. Modify the remaining layouts. Use Arrange options.
  1. Copy/paste temporary grid lines. Remember to Order back.
  2. Insert -> New slide to add the new layout.
  3. Carefully place Image size templates and Lorem Ipsum using the grid lines as a guide.
  4. Reopen Slide -> Edit master to remove the grid lines.
