How to Insert a Solid Line in a PowerPoint Footer

Save

Microsoft Powerpoint offers a blank slate on which to create slides for presentations. While you can customize any slide to meet your own presentation needs, there is a preexisting structure that includes a header and footer at the top and bottom of the slide. A Powerpoint footer can have any Powerpoint object inserted into it, including an object from the "Drawing" menu. This allows you to insert a solid line into the footer section of your Powerpoint slide.

  • Double-click the Powerpoint file to open it in Powerpoint.

  • Click the slide that you want to add a line to in the footer from the left side of the screen.

  • Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the window.

  • Click "Header and Footer" in the "Text" section at the top of the window.

  • Check the box to the left of "Footer," then click "Apply."

  • Click the "Home" tab at the top of the window.

  • Click the "Line" tool in the "Drawing" section at the top of the window.

  • Click inside your footer at the location where you want the line to start, then drag the line to the point that you want it to end. You can right-click on the line and choose "Format shape" to make adjustments to the shape, such as modifying the line's width or color.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can insert your footer into each slide by clicking "Apply to all" instead of "Apply" in the "Header and Footer" window.
