To insert a field in a slide, move the cursor where the field will be and then select from the menu bar Insert > Fields followed by one of these choices:

  • Date (fixed): inserts the date at time of inserting the field.
  • Date (variable): upon loading the file, the field is updated and contains the date at the time of opening the file.
  • Time (fixed): a field displaying the time of insertion.
  • Time (Variable): a field which is updated at time of opening the file.
  • Author: The author of the presentation. This information is derived from the value recorded in the general options. To modify this information go to Tools > Options > section then select User Data.
  • Page number: inserts the page number of the slide.
