Yes, that was the default on the master. I didn't mess with fonts, only the font size (which it seems to do automatically most of the time).1. Don't use the S or Shadow font capability except in very rare instances. It generally makes a presentation look muddy...a subliminal for fuzzy thinking? Is this defaulted on the Master page?
Good idea; I'll do that.2. Use Bold face in general; it looks better and is easier to perceive. A different color font (yellow) is better than italics, which is harder to read.
I'm trying to make it more graphic, but RS concepts have always been hard to depict graphically. I want to defer most of the text to an audio commentary.3. Use fewer words, thus marginally bigger type...an acquired art.
I did eventually figure that one out. Apparently you can apply effects to individual paragraphs in a list, which I didn't know before.4. With multiple paragraphs, put them in the same text box...it's easier to control them. And, use 1-line of line spacing...Format/Line Spacing.../After paragraph: 1 line.
I'm starting the 2nd presentation on the "photon group" of particles, which includes electrons, positrons and photons. What is the best way to handle animation? I want to show movement, but if I use effects, they are lost when I convert to HTML. Animated GIF files? I hate to do that, because they can get rather large in file size.I didn't spend much time on the text; I don't know enough yet; however, less is more. You don't need to "tell them what you're going to tell them" at the top of the page if the material is self-explanatory in the body of the slide with your audio explanation.
Next question is: is this a proper tool to use for web-based eductation? It's nice because it is quick and easy, but seems to be more designed for conference-room style lectures.
Thanks for the example presentation--good reference for me!
