Microsoft Powerpoint ebook tutorial. 

Follow along to customize your ebook

So you have downloaded your template.

Not sure where to begin? Well lets start here.

Using the old mac powerpoint?
The tutorial below covers:

  • Adding text

  • Adding or replacing images

  • Editing footer

  • Duplicating, rearranging & deleting pages

  • Compressing & saving as PDF

  • Adding clickable links in your ebook (using sejda)

More advanced:

  • Editing in master slide (elements that can't be selected)

  • Changing colors to solid colored elements

ADDING TEXT
 
Click on placeholder text box and add in your own content. You can still freely move around text box or resize as you wish
ADDING IMAGES OR REPLACING IMAGES
 
  • Drag and drop your image file into the grey placeholde OR click on icon in the grey placeholder and select your desired image

  • Adjust Image: Click on Image and select the first symbol on the left and resize and readjust. 

  • Replace an image: Click on the pre-existing image and delete. The grey placeholder box should appear again and then drag and drop in your new image

​EDITING FOOTER
 
  • Edit Footer: View > Header and Footer. Replace text under footer and click ‘Apply to All’

  • Remove Footer: View > Header and Footer. Untick Slide Number and Footer and click ‘Apply to All’

DUPLICATE, REARRANGE & DELETE PAGES
 
  • Duplicate Pages: Right click on any page template and select 'Duplicate Slide’

  • Rearrange Pages: Click and hold page and drag to rearrange order

  • Delete Pages: Right click on any page and select 'Delete Slide' 

 

*I do not recommend using 'new slides' feature as some elements do not appear*

​COMPRESS & SAVE AS PDF
 
  • Compress File: File> Reduce File Size > Select 'OK’. I choose 200ppi but if i’m using high quality large stock photos the file size still might be quite large even after I compress it so then I select 150ppi

  • Save as ebook: File > Save As > Select PDF next to Format: > Save

ADDING CLICKABLE LINKS TO YOUR EBOOK
 

It's very simple to add clickable links into your ebook once you have saved your final PDF. Links are perfect to add to your connect with me page to make it easier for your reader to visit your social media handles or your final call out text. We also have our T3 Ebook Template that includes buttons throughout the ebook (this is great for affiliate links).

  • I love using sejda.com/pdf-editor

  • Click "Upload PDF file"

  • Select the Link Tool and drag a box over buttons or social media text.

  • After you finish click save at the bottom and then download!

EDITING MASTER SLIDE

You may notice a few elements that can not be selected or move on the page these elements can only be edited in the Master Slide (which is like the backend of the template)  It’s very simple to access.

  • Click on the Theme Tab and then the 'Edit Master’ button

  • Then you can move, resize or change colour of any elements you wish

  • After you finish click “Close’

  • Then you should see your changes have been made

​CHANGING COLORS TO ELEMENTS
 
  • Double click on the coloured shape

  • Click on Fill and then choose desired color. If you find that you can’t select a certain object then refer to the step above in 'Editing in Master Slide'
