Before Using the Templates
First thing’s first: Install the fonts (if you don’t, the fonts will be replaced by your default fonts).
To install the fonts, simply follow these steps:
- Open the fonts folder inside the downloaded folder.
- Select all of the font files (ctrl+A or cmd+A).
- Mac users: Right-click, then choose Open With > Font Book.app. The Font Book application will open, then click Install Font.
- Windows users: Right-click, then select Install.
Now that the fonts are installed, let’s get creative!
Using the Templates in PowerPoint
Step 1: Import the Template to PowerPoint
Open the .potx file you want to use. The file is located inside the PowerPoint templates folder.
Step 2: Save As and Rename
This .potx file is a PowerPoint template format, so you need to change it to a .pptx file so that you can modify it (without losing the file). Click Save As, choose .pptx file format, then Rename it with your presentation name.
Now, you’re ready to create your own presentation.
Step 3: Add a New Slide (with Master Slide Template)
Adding a new slide with Master Slide is easy. Just go to the Home menu, click on the dropdown symbol on Insert Slide, and the Slide layout options will appear. You can choose the suitable layout for each of your slides.
Step 4: Customize Your Own PowerPoint Template
You can also modify the Master Slide to the style and layout you want. Go to View menu and click Slide Master. Choose the slide layout you want to change, then edit the layout, text, font, and remove/add more ornaments.
You can also create a new slide layout by right-clicking on the navigation pane on the left, and choose Insert Layout.
Tip: If you want to add more ornaments in the Sanjivani layout, just take the ornaments from the last page of the Master Slide. The slide contains some clip arts you can use to decorate your presentation. Have fun exploring!
Step 5: Save Your Master Slide
To save the customized Master Slide, simply click on Slide Master > Close Master View, and you’ll go back to your default presentation view.
Using the Templates in Google Slides
Step 1: Import Theme
Open Google Slides with your desktop browser and sign in using your Google account. Start with Blank Presentation, click Theme on the toolbar, then click Import Theme.
Choose Upload, then upload the .pptx file of the template you want to use. It’s located under the downloaded Google Slides Templates folder (drag-and-drop will do, as well).
Make sure you choose the .pptx file, not .potx, then click Import Theme.
Step 2: Add New Slide
To add a new slide, click on the dropdown button next to the “+” button on the toolbar. You’ll find the layout options you can choose from. Click on one of the layout options to create a new slide using that chosen layout.
Step 3: Customize Master Slides
You can also customize your Google Slides template by choosing the View menu and activating Theme Builder. You’ll be able to view all the slide layouts inside this template.
Choose the slide layout that you want to customize to start editing. To go back to the default presentation view, click View > uncheck the Theme Builder.
Now, you (and your cat) just need to rehearse your presentation. Knock ’em dead!
