The official Missouri S&T PowerPoint templates come in 16:10 and 16:9 screen ratio (for LCD monitors and cinematic format, such as Leach Theatre’s projector) and 4:3 (for projectors and lower-resolution purposes). Some of the templates use the font Orgon, which is installed on all registered computers on campus. Others require Tungsten font (request it here). Be sure to use the correct template for the project that will be used, not the screen you are working from.
Remember that a PowerPoint presentation created on one computer using one set of fonts may not look the same when opened on a different computer that has different fonts installed. If you are using PowerPoint for Windows, ensure a consistent look in your presentation by embedding the preferred fonts in your presentation. To ensure consistent display of presentations prepared in PowerPoint for Mac, save your final presentation as a PDF.
TIP: To change the background image used on the PowerPoint cover, just select a different photo for your slide background. Be sure it maintains the proportions of your photo so it doesn't squish or stretch it.
16:9 Screen Ratio
When using a PowerPoint presentation on HDTV or widescreen monitors you'll want this size.
4:3 Screen Ratio
Most campus projectors still project in a 4:3 ratio. If you are using a project or monitor that is labeled as “HD” or “High Definition” use the 16:9 ratio template.
