Each presentation that is created begins as a copy of a template. The template contains the background, layout, color schemes and other formatting elements that are then loaded into the masters and slides of a new presentation.
There are two types of templates:
- Design templates. These are the most common type of template. They contain one or more slide-title master pairs that determine the default appearance for slides in a presentation.
- Content templates. These templates also contain suggested content. You can create a presentation with a content template by using the AutoContent wizard.
