Use elearning templates

Adobe Presenter is shipped with enhanced default elearning templates that contain different layouts for your presentations. These layouts let you quickly decide the placement of text and other assets on a slide.

To use the templates in your presentation, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new project by clicking New > New From Existing.

  2. Navigate to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Adobe\Presenter Assets\PowerPoint Templates and choose a template.

You can then apply a Powerpoint theme (Design ribbon) to the new presentation.

Apply PowerPoint themes to presentations

In Adobe Presenter presentations, the slide background is determined by settings in PowerPoint. You can customize the background of the slides in a presentation by using PowerPoint design templates. When you apply a design template, all slides in the presentation are assigned the design template background.

For example, you might create a presentation in PowerPoint using the design template named Technology, add the theme named Arctic in the Adobe Presenter Theme Editor, publish the presentation to Adobe Connect Server, and view the presentation. You notice that the theme clashes with the slide background of the Technology design template so you want to change the slide background.

Follow the procedure below corresponding to the PowerPoint version installed on your computer. (To check version number, open PowerPoint, click the Help menu, and select About Microsoft PowerPoint.)

Use PowerPoint XP templates as slide backgrounds

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. From the Format menu, select Slide Design.
  3. Select an appropriate template that matches the theme you have chosen for your presentation and click Apply.
  4. To test the design template background with the presentation theme, publish your presentation locally and view the results. (In PowerPoint, select Adobe Presenter > Publish, select My Computer, and click Publish.)

Use PowerPoint 2007/2010 template as slide backgrounds

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. From the menu, select Design tab.
  3. Select an appropriate template that matches the theme you have chosen for your presentation and click Apply.
  4. To test the design template background with the presentation theme, publish your presentation locally and view the results. (In PowerPoint, select Adobe Presenter > Publish, select My Computer, and click Publish.)

Bemærk:

Avoid using the Concourse theme background. Gradient images in this theme do not display properly.

Use PowerPoint theme colors

You can now use the colors of your PowerPoint theme in Adobe Presenter themes as well.

  1. Open the presentation and click Adobe Presenter > Theme.
  2. Click Use PowerPoint Theme Colors and click OK.

Adobe Presenter picks up the colors used in the PowerPoint theme and applies them to the skin of the presentation. You can see the preview in the Theme Editor.

Theme, Glow, Background, and Font color boxes display the colors used in the PowerPoint theme along with different shades of the colors.

Create and edit themes

The primary way to design how presentations appear in the Adobe Presenter viewer is through the use of themes. Themes serve as the container for your presentation and let you add static images, colors, and sound to create dynamic and interactive presentations. You can add a theme at any time. Try using different themes until you achieve the look you want. You can reuse the same theme for each presentation you create or design new themes.

Adobe Presenter gives you many options for customizing colors, tabs, functionality, graphics, font style, and other design elements of a theme.

Select a presentation theme

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter > Theme.
  3. Click a theme from the Theme list.
  4. Click OK.

Create a custom theme

You can create a custom theme by selecting one of the default themes, making changes, and saving the new theme with a different name. For example, you can start with the theme Sage, change the font color to dark green, and then save the new theme as SageModified. After you create a custom theme, it appears in the Theme Name pop‑up menu and can be used with other presentations.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter > Theme.
  3. Make changes as desired. For example, click Modify Text Labels to change the text in different areas of the theme, or click the colors under Appearance to select custom colors.
  4. Click the Save As button and specify a name for the new theme.
  5. Click OK.

    The new theme appears in the Theme Name pop‑up menu in the Theme Editor and can be used when publishing presentations.

Change and localize text labels in a theme

Text labels are the words that appear in a theme, such as button text and tab names. You can edit text labels in a theme at any time.

  1. In PowerPoint, open a presentation (PPT or PPTX file).
  2. Click Adobe Presenter > Theme.
  3. Click Modify Text Labels.
  4. Select a language for the text labels from the Language list

    Bemærk:

    Presentations detect the language of a user’s operating system and automatically display the text labels in the user’s native language if their computer’s language is set to German, French, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Simplified Chinese, or Dutch. Otherwise, English text labels appear.

  5. As necessary, change the text labels for any element of the presentation theme. For example, you can change the text that displays on buttons or panes.
  6. Click OK.
