Creating KPresenter Templates

It is very easy to add new templates to KPresenter's library.

If you have made a presentation in a style that you would like to use again, you can save it as a template.

This tutorial will show how we can make a new template and save it.

  1. Open KPresenter and create a new document.

  2. To add a little sparkle to the blank slide, we can change the slide background - do this by either going to Format > Slide Background... , or by selecting the same item from the right mouse button menu:

    The KPresenter Slide Background

    We want the background to look attractive, so let's add a background gradient by using the drop-down menu, and then selecting the gradient colors by clicking the colored boxes. Of course, you may choose to use an image as a background by clicking the Picture tab: feel free to experiment, but keep it beautiful!

  3. The page should now have the background you desire. Create a text box, and type a heading for your slide:

    When you are happy with your template, go to File -> Template Manager :


    This dialog box allows you to select where you would like your template to be saved:

    Saving the new template

    I highly recommend that you save the template in the Screen Presentations group. You may call it whatever you wish, in this case, my template is named Tutorial_Template . Once you are happy with the settings, press OK to add your custom template to the template collection.

  4. You can now close the document you have been working on (there is no need to save it). The next time you are presented with the startup dialog, your very own template will be available to select!
