5. All presentations at this year’s Meeting will be in WIDESCREEN format. To take full advantage of the new widescreen format, we recommend that you build or convert your presentation to 16:9. For more information on how to change an existing 4:3 presentation into a 16:9 widescreen format, please see below.
If you choose not to use the widescreen template, your presentation will perform as expected, however, the presentation will be displayed with “pillar boxed” on the 16:9 screen. If you would prefer to use your own PowerPoint template, you can change an existing 4:3 presentation into a 16:9 widescreen format by following these few steps:
For PowerPoint 2010 and 2007, Click the Design tab, and then click on Slides Sized For. In the drop-down menu, select On-Screen Show (16:9) and click
For PowerPoint 2013, Click the Design tab, and then click on Slide Size. In the drop-down menu, select Widescreen (16:9).
For PowerPoint 2016, Click the Design tab, click on Page Setup. In the drop-down menu, select On-Screen Show (16:9) and click OK.
IMPORTANT: If you convert an existing presentation to widescreen, your slides will expand to the new size. If you have any videos or photos in an existing PowerPoint, they may need to be resized so they do not appear stretched. Also, be sure to check animations to ensure the elements line up correctly.
