There is nothing like being unprepared when your presentation venue is incompatible with the slide background you’ve chosen. One solution is to create a “double master” or two Slide Masters in your presentation.
The problem with getting your initial content into a PowerPoint presentation is typing in the placeholders. Rather than settling for “good enough” in your frustration with the input process, change the process.
Q. I want to apply a second animation, but every time I choose another animation, it gets rid of the first one. Did they take this ability away in the new version of Office?
Use the Record Slide Show to add timings, narration and navigation.
Q. Someone revised my presentation. Is there a way I can see exactly what they changed on each slide?
Q. There’s a cool “gears” SmartArt element in PowerPoint. Can I animate it so the gears spin?
Display the slide list so you can choose where to go in a click with Ctrl+S ... Reveal the Taskbar by selecting Ctrl+T ... Bring up the tools on the right-click menu without clicking by hitting Shift+F10.
You've probably experienced the tedium of double-checking your huge slide decks for formatting inconsistencies and copying and pasting logos on dozens of slides. Learning to work with Slide Masters frees you from those tasks.

Sometimes it’s just too confining to work with the limited handout options in Power­­Point. Wouldn’t it be great to have the flexibility of Word to create handouts? This option is built into Power­­Point already.

Sometimes it’s useful to have the slide number on the presentation slide itself, rather than just on the handout. This is easy to add.
