Re: PowerPoint 2016, finding the 31 slide layouts

Van Lant, Robin

I have become rusty with PowerPoint, but just looked in 2016 to see what I could find. I do recall in Office 2010 that you could pull up that list of all the slide layouts and use F6 to get to it. I'm not seeing how to do that in 2016. The two relevant buttons I have found are on the home ribbon. Hit alt h, then tab about 6 times to a button called slides or once more to a button called Layout. Alt down arrow on either to get a grid of layout options. It's not 31, but it's probably the most common. I'll post again if I find the way to find more.

By the way, Freedom Scientific has a set of recent webinars on their training site on using PowerPoint 2016. I listened to the first so far.

Subject: [jaws-users] PowerPoint 2016, finding the 31 slide layouts

In older versions of PowerPoint there were at least 30 options for
slide layouts. Title and one object, title and two objects, title,
object, and picture ... Listed in probably a grid, although I'm not
sure. In PowerPoint 2016 I cannot find this group of layouts. Oh,
wise ones, where the heck is it????

thanks a lot,
