Here we have the possibility to work with a good amount of multimedia and text elements. All this will allow us to greatly enrich those projects we work on and make them more attractive and eye-catching. The complexity of these presentations will depend on the efforts we put in, since for PowerPoint functions, other than.
Certain objects help create more useful presentations
And you have to take into account that in this is a program that in addition to the usual texts, PowerPoint allows us to work with shapes, images, tables, videos, hyperlinks, graphics, drawings, etc; from the Insert section. All this helps us to create more interesting, useful or striking projects for those to whom we are going to show the presentation.
But in this specific case we want to focus on a type of elements that will provide additional information without taking up too much space in the slideshow. These will be very useful to add a bit of information to these elements that are part of our presentation, we refer to the footnotes.
Keep in mind that the aforementioned slides have a finite amount of space in Powerpoint. That is why the footnotes that we mention may be just what you need. Therefore, in case they are necessary, below we are going to show you how to add them to your Projects in this program.
Add footnotes to PowerPoint slides
For all of this that we are discussing, the first thing we will do is open PowerPoint and then we will go to the slide where we want to insert a footnote. Later, next to text in which we need this new element, we insert a number or symbol, and mark it.
In the Start Source section, click on the small button in the lower right corner to bring up the start window. Source, where we mark the Superscript selector.
Now is when we are going to add the footnote from the number or symbol that we have converted into superscript next to a specific text. Thus, in the Text section of PowerPoint’s Insert menu, in this case we opted for the Header and footer option. This is where we can create the footer that will help us insert additional information on the slide.
Therefore, in the new window that appears, at the bottom, we see a dialog box called Footer, where we write the symbol or number, followed by the text that will make up the footer that we are specifying. By accepting the changes in this window, we will see how the slide already appears that information text additional that interests us.
This is something that we can carry out with any slide, which will be very helpful in certain PowerPoint presentations.
