We look a the headers and footers and adding the date to a printed slide.
We first look rename a few slides, then show how to display the Date and/or slide name on the printed slides using the Print Dialog box. A .pdf is printed to show how this will look on a printed slide. Then we look at the Handouts Slide and see how the headers and footers are in the same positions as the Notes tab. Looking at the Master Slide in the Normal view shows only footers. You can get back to the presentation by going into View, Normal, and there are buttons on the standard toolbar to get to the master and normal view quickly.
Insert -] Header and Footer and Insert -] Page Number both do the same thing, they both bring up the Header and Footer dialog box. Fromm the slides tab, we can add in a date and time (or put a message in the date and time) as well as add in a variable time, which will show the date this file was printed. The date format can be changed as well as the language. The Footer is just a placeholder that can hold a message or nothing and be turned on or off, and the page number can be turned on or off. A “Do not show on title page” is also available from a checkbox.
The Notes and Handouts tab works in the same way with the placeholders and we can insert the date, change the language and print the page number. All these placeholders can be turned on and off and changed using checkboxes and radio buttons.
There is a more to say about this topic when we get to master slides.
