Tutorial

We will now add a title and a subtitle to the slide lines. The title will go right after the background line and the subtitle will go at the end of the slides. We will also add transitions around these new slides.

First, we must ensure we are in the proper place so the title line will end up behind the background line. Click on the first image in the slide list, then click on the Add Transition button. Click on the Transitions tab, then click on Fade in (1 second duration). Click the Ok button.

Now we will add the Title slide. Click on the first image in the slide list, then click on the Add Transition button. Click on the Title tab, then enter the title and ensure the duration is set to 6. Click the Ok button.

Finally, we will add a transition just after the title. Click on the Add Transition button. Click on the Transitions tab, then click on Cross fade (1 second duration). Click the Ok button.

The title line and its transitions are added just before the first image, (just after the background line), which is exactly what we want.

Next we will add the titlebar and a fade out transition at the very end of the slides. Click on the last line in the slides list, then click on the Add Transition button. Click on the Transitions tab, then Click on Fade out. Adjust the duration to be 4 seconds. Click on the 'Insert after slide' radio button, then click the OK button.

Click on the Add Transition button. Click on the TitleBar tab, then enter an upper title and a lower title. We will also set the duration to 6. Click the OK button.
