Apply A Layout To PowerPoint Slides

Slide layouts in PowerPoint determine the placements of content, text and objects on your slides. PowerPoint comes with several different layouts that you can choose from or you can choose to create your own layout.

Applying a preconfigured layout is simple in PowerPoint 2002:

  1. Open a new presentation.
  2. From the Format menu, click the Slide Layout option.
  3. If necessary, select the slide you want to apply the layout to.
  4. From the Slide Layout task pane, click the slide layout you want to use.

The layout will automatically be applied to your slide.
