Assignment #2: Basic Formatting




I’ll be grading your work based on what you upload to the Assignment 2 section of the StudioBast E-Learning tool. Name the file exactly like I require or you will lose points. DO NOT email your assignment to me - I will ignore it and you will get a ZERO.


This assignment will focus on basic formatting of text in PowerPoint 2010.


Format six (6) pages in PowerPoint 2010/2007 using the Original Text I provide in the link below. Format the pages to look like the Required Outcome below. Based on Chapters 1, 3, and 4. DUE Sunday, October 21. 15 points.







To Do

Download the Original Text, and save it as a new file called assign02firstinitiallastname.pptx in your USB Flash drive's MIC104t/Assignments folder. Example: assign02lbothell.pptx.


Open the link for the Required Outcome so you can see the specific format I want you to accomplish. Use this Required Outcome example to guide you in doing the following tasks:

  • Type your OWN name like in the Required Outcome.
  • Choose the Solstice design theme.

  • Set both Page 2 and Page 3 text to Left Aligned using the Paragraph context menu.
  • Add a period at the end of each bulleted sentence on Page 4.
  • On Page 5, manually move the left-hand text box to the right so it does not overlap the theme colors. See the Required Outcome.
  • Also on Page 5, manually resize the width of the right-hand text box so it does not overlap the left-hand text box. See the Required Outcome.
  • Also on Page 5, change the bullets in the left-hand text box to numbers, and remove any bulleting from the word What?.
  • Also on Page 5, remove any bulleting from the word Why?.
  • Also on Page 5, change the color of the What? and Why? text to a dark brown.
