Every slide that you see in PowerPoint has its own unique look — it has a slide background, and the same fonts typically are used on all slides. You really don’t have to do anything other than adding new slides and typing in your text — all the formatting is taken care of by some magical behind-the-scenes intelligence within PowerPoint. Also if you print notes pages or handouts from PowerPoint, you will find that these are also formatted to synchronize with the look of your slides. Ever wonder how you can control all this intelligence? Well, the answer is the Masters that are contained within every PowerPoint presentation.
