Creating a presentation document – Sanskrit
Welcome to the spoken tutorial on LibreOffice Impress – Creating a presentation document and basic formatting. In this tutorial we will learn about the parts of the Impress window and how to:Insert slides,Copy slides, About Fonts and Formating a fonts. Here we are using Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and LibreOffice Suite version 3.3.4. Lets open our presentation “Sample Impress” that we created in the previous tutorial. Lets take a tour of what is on the screen. In the centre, we see the ‘Workspace’, which is our working area. As you can see, the “Workspace” has 5 tabs called the “View buttons”. Currently the “Normal” tab is selected. This is the main view for creating individual slides. The “Outline” view shows topic titles, bulleted and numbered lists for each slide in outline format. The “Notes” view lets you add notes to each slide that are not seen when the presentation is shown. The “Handout” view allows to print the slides for a handout. Here we can choose the number of slides that we want to print per page. The “Slide Sorter” view shows thumbnails of the slides. Lets click on the “Normal” view button again. On the left hand side of the screen, you see the “Slides” pane. It contains ‘thumbnails’ of the slides in the presentation. On the right hand side, you see the “Tasks” pane, which has 5 sections. The Layouts section has pre-packaged layouts. We can use these directly or modify them as per our requirements. We should see each of these sections in detail as we progress through the tutorial series. Now, lets learn how to insert a slide.Select the second slide, in the “Slides” pane, by clicking on it. Now we click on “Insert” and “Slide”. We see that a new blank slide has been inserted after the second slide. To add a title to the slide, click on the text bar that says ‘Click to add Title’. Now type ‘Short Term Strategy’ and click outside the text box. So a title can be added in this way. There are two ways in which we can make a copy of a slide. Let’s look at the first way; Click on “Insert” and “Duplicate Slide”. We can see that a new duplicate slide has been inserted after the one we created in the previous step. Alternately, go to the slide sorter view by clicking on the “Slide Sorter” tab in the “Workspace” pane. Now copy the 7th slide by right-clicking on it and selecting “Copy” from the context menu. Right click on the last slide and select “Paste”. Select ‘After’ and click ‘OK’. You have now created a copy of the slide at the end of the presentation! Now let’s look at fonts and some of the ways that you can format fonts. Select the slide entitled ‘Long term goal’ by double clicking on it. Click on the “Body” text box and select all the text. Now delete it. Now type the following ; Reduce cost, Reduce dependence on few vendors, Develop customized applications Changing the font type and font size are the same as in LibreOffice Writer documents. Select a line of text.In the “Text Format” tool bar, change the Font type from “Albany” to “Arial Black”. And the font size from “32” to “40”. Click anywhere outside the text box. Notice that the font has changed. We can also change the font by clicking on “Format” in the main menu and the “Character” option. This opens up a dialog box in which we can set the Font, Style and Size as per our requirement. Lets close this dialog box. To change the color of the font, we will choose the slide entitled ‘Development up to present’. Click on the body text box and select all the text. Click on the downward arrow next to the font color icon and select the colour you want. Click anywhere outside the text box. Notice the change in the colour. Formatting like Bold, Italics and Underline are the same as in LibreOffice Writer documents. Select the slide entitled ‘Recommendations’. Click on the “Body” text box and select a line of text. Now click on the Bold, Italics and Underline icons. Click anywhere outside the text box. Notice the change in the text. This brings us to the end of this tutorial.
