Ovation Test Presentation: Ovation Test Presentation This presentation will test several common slide formats (although many of them are also examples of what you shouldn’t do in a PowerPoint show). The content of these slides is based upon real-world conditions. All text should be crisp and clear, and all animations should be smooth, professional and non-distracting. Be sure to add Walk-In, Title, Intermission and Walk-Out slides to your shows to test out the full capabilities of the themes! Lots of Bullets (26 to be exact): Lots of Bullets (26 to be exact) This is the 1st bullet This is the 2nd bullet This is the 3rd bullet (making sense so far?) This is the 4th bullet (and it should be bold!) This is the 5th bullet (and it should be underlined) This is the 6th bullet (and it should be italicized) 7th bullet (this is a good test of superscript text, too) 8th bullet 9th bullet 10th bullet 11th 12th 13th 14th 15th 16th (one of my favorite numbers) 17th 18th 19th Twentieth 21st (I remember when I turned 21 <sigh>) 22nd 23rd 24th 25th 26th (can you see them all?) PowerPoint Presentation: There is no Title on this slide. It tests margins and different levels of bullets. Just a bunch of bullets (this line should be italicized, and the word “should” should be underlined) . I boldly hope they show up ok. And these are numbered…. So you should see some numbered bullets This uses capital letters So does this And this, too. So this should be line D This is a Capital Roman Numeral bullet So is this… This is lower case roman numeral And this is too And this Do we handle ‘v’s? How about lower-case alpha bullets with a parenthesis? Hope so! Back out to the main level Line 4 here. 7 Long Bullets (Text Resizing): 7 Long Bullets (Text Resizing) This slide is certainly not very easy to love. There is waaay too much text all over this slide. Poor little text RenderEngine. It is sweating… These bullets are very long and the lines should wrap around at least once or twice in most themes. Here is more than one sentence per bullet. Even though that is not recommended for a good presentation. Just one sentence here. We need to support long bullet points in Ovation. I thought Ovation was supposed to encourage better presentations. Do good presentations keep a slide to 3-5 bullets by making each bullet 1 page long? Man, this presentation would either put me to sleep or fry my brain. Too much info on one slide, so I would either shut down or burn out. Can’t the presenter summarize these bullets and just put some of this info in their teleprompter notes? I need to make this slide as long as possible to make sure I test the line wrapping and text resizing (when it’s available … it’s not in the product at this point.) Perhaps not having it encourages people to make smaller, more concise slides. But then again, we need to make sure that someone who really has important things to say doesn’t feel cramped. So, we will support insanely long slides like this just to please such presenters (although their audiences won’t be as pleased)! This slide has a Title and one Large Image: This slide has a Title and one Large Image Santa Cola: Santa Cola Merry Xmas Everybody! And to all a Good Night! Ho-ho-ho-ho! Drink Coke! Leave the Milk for Santa! And the Cookies! Ask Santa for Ovation! Remember, your friends might want a copy of Ovation, too! Will this text run into Santa’s Head? It doesn’t in PowerPoint. So it shouldn’t in Ovation, right? I think Santa might be in trouble, kids! Ok, how about a slide to test the ppt layout: Ok, how about a slide to test the ppt layout This slide is intentionally formatted horribly With some of the text under the pictures and some of it over the pictures. And lots of blank lines between bullets. Doesn’t matter, because 2+ pix will punt (and there are three on this page – in PowerPoint this text is on top of the blue picture but it is underneath the girl & dog picture). Look for the dashed lines around the edge of the girl and dog picture. “Shaded” Org Chart to test Auto Shapes: “Shaded” Org Chart to test Auto Shapes Final slide (or is it?): Final slide (or is it?) If you made it here You didn’t break Congratulations! Don’t forget to test a Walk-Out Slide!
