When you launch PowerPoint 2003, it opens an empty presentation of just one slide. Typically this one slide has a title placeholder and another placeholder for a subtitle — typing any text within these placeholders shows black text over a white slide background. This is the default template PowerPoint 2003 provides — but you don’t have to live with these defaults. You change this blank presentation so that you get a slide that’s part of your custom PowerPoint template. Or even any of the other templates built within PowerPoint.
