Hi, this is Surya from The Busy Mom Club and today I’m going to be showing you how to create your own custom slide size in PowerPoint.
First, you will open up PowerPoint just like you normally would and you can click on a blank presentation.
You want to go to
>>>>custom slide size
We are going to make one you can use if you’re going to make a PDF or anything you want to print out: a worksheet, printable, planner, anything like that.
For this tutorial I’ll be doing a portrait, so portrait is taller than it is wide, so we’re gonna do 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches high.
I like to ensure (on the pop up screen) the fit so that you know you’re not making things off the side of the screen. Click OK and your slide size should change to look just like a sheet of office paper!
Then, you can take your text boxes and you know do everything that you want. You can get rid of the pre-formatting if you want to and then you could design your PDF or worksheet however you like.
You can also do the same process if you want to make a landscape one you would just do 11 as the width and 8.5 as the height, but it’s pretty straightforward.
Then, when you save the presentation, it will just save the new slide size. If you add a new slide size in, it will automatically be in the new sizes that you specified.
