Understanding Smart Art graphics
Some of the coolest improvements in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 are related to the overhaul of its diagramming features, which let you add much more than detailed diagrams and organization charts to presentations. Collectively, all the diagrams available in PowerPoint 2007 are now called SmartArt graphics.
With SmartArt graphics, you can
Show all sorts of relationships using diagrams
Change between SmartArt graphic types so that you can determine which SmartArt graphic variant works best for you
Change the colors and effects of your SmartArt graphic so that they use the same Theme Colors as your presentation
Customize the look of the SmartArt graphic further by editing individual shape elements contained within the SmartArt graphic (0:10 - 0:45)
Change a slide layout
If you do not find a standard slide layout that matches your slide content, you can change an existing layout.
On the View tab, click Slide Master.
In the thumbnail pane that contains the slide masters and layouts, pick the layout that has closest arrangement of placeholders to how you want your slide to look.
If you don't like any of the layouts, pick the Blank Layout and start over by adding placeholders to contain text, pictures, videos, etc.
To change an existing layout, do one or more of the following:
To add a placeholder, on the Slide Master tab, click Insert Placeholder, and then select a placeholder type from the list. Click a location on the layout, and then drag to draw the placeholder.
Resize, reposition, or delete a placeholder.
To rename the layout, in the thumbnail list of layouts, right-click the layout that you customized, and then click Rename Layout.
In the Rename Layout dialog box, type a new name that describes the layout you’ve just created, and then click Rename.
On the Slide Master tab, click Close Master View. (0:46 - 2 : 25)
Apply or change a Quick Style for a SmartArt graphic
Click the SmartArt graphic that you want to apply a different SmartArt Style to.
Under SmartArt Tools, on the Design tab, in the SmartArt Styles group, click the SmartArt Style that you want.
If you don't see the SmartArt Tools or Design tabs, make sure that you've selected a SmartArt graphic
The SmartArt Styles that are available depend on the underlying document theme. For example, if you paste an SmartArt graphic that was created in a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation and that has theme "A" applied to it into a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document that has theme "B" applied to it, the SmartArt graphic will use theme "B" rather than theme "A".
If you customize your SmartArt graphic and then choose a SmartArt Style that contains some similar customizations, your customization will be lost. For example, if you change the 3-D rotation of the SmartArt graphic and then apply a different 3-D SmartArt Style, the SmartArt Style will override the changes that you made.
If you apply a SmartArt Style to a SmartArt graphic, and then customize the SmartArt graphic, you can apply a different SmartArt Style to quickly restore the professional designer-quality look.
To use the same Quick Style for both a SmartArt graphic and a shape, do the following:
Click the SmartArt graphic, and then under SmartArt Tools, on the Design tab, in the SmartArt Styles group, click one of the first five Styles.
If you don't see the SmartArt Tools or Design tabs, make sure that you've selected a SmartArt graphic.
Click the shape, and then on the Format tab, in the Shape Styles group, click the same Style that you clicked in step 1.
To prevent the SmartArt graphic from overpowering your message, apply 3-D SmartArt Styles sparingly.
Create or delete a custom theme color
You can create a customized color scheme, also known as theme colors, in PowerPoint and use it in other Office applications. Find a standard theme color that you like, and then modify and save it in PowerPoint. The next time that you create a new PowerPoint presentation, Word document, or Excel workbook, you can use the theme color that you created.
Do any of the following:
Create a new theme color
On the Themes tab, under Theme Options, click Colors, and then click Create Theme Colors. (2:26 - 7: 25)
