Headers and Footers

From Help Wiki
You can use headers and footers in Powerpoint 2007 to keep track of slide numbers, date and time, or small notes.

If you are using a Windows computer, there will be a Headers and Footers option under the Insert drop down box. Select that option and a dialogue box will appear with all of the options you will need. You can add a date and time stamp, slide number, or small notes(generally references or citations).

If you are using a Mac OS X computer, it is a little trickier. You need to go to the Insert drop menu and select either Slide Number or Date and Time. Both options open the same dialogue window for options. Here, the options are quite similar to the Windows 7 version. You can add date and time stamps, slide numbers, or small notes.

When to Use Headers or Footers

  1. When you want to note slide numbers on a powerpoint slideshow.
  2. When you want to add a date or time stamp on each slide.
  3. When you want to include a citation or similar note on a slide.
