Chapter�2.�A Step-By-Step Tutorial

Neil Lucock

Krishna Tateneni

Anne-Marie Mahfouf

In this chapter, KPresenter is introduced using a simple tutorial. We shall walk through the most basic steps that are involved in creating a presentation, and adding some basic effects.

Start a new document

When you start KPresenter, the usual KOffice startup dialog appears.

The KOffice startup dialog

Select Screen on the left then select the template labeled Title (highlighted in blue in the screenshot above) by clicking on it. You can check Always use this template to make it the default template.

Now click Use This Template . This brings up the slide editor window, where you can view and edit the slides (and objects contained in them) in your document. At the moment, we just have one slide, with one object on it, which is a text box.

The slide editor

Double-click the text box. The cursor changes to a vertical bar to show that you can now type some text and the background of the edited area becomes grey.

The text insertion cursor

Go ahead, type some text!

Adding text

Click away from the text to de-select the text box when you are done typing.
