Creating a Powerpoint Presentation on Mac

For each Odorama event we have a powerpoint presentation that serves as a visual for the lecturers. If you want things to run smoothly, it is best to have all the presentations in one. It takes some time to check if everything is in place, so be sure to contact the lecturers in time to send their presentations.

Odorama Presentation

We use a Macbook to play the presentation from. We do not use powerpoint, but we use Keynote for that. You can find the keynote template on the server.
file01 > Kantoor 01 >0-Stichting > 0-Programma > 02-Event Series > 05-Odorama > year

  1. Create a folder with the date of the Odorama edition you're working on and name it
    [ yy.mm.dd | (title) ]
  2. Copy the Template to the folder you made
  3. Open the Template from the folder
  4. Click the title, remove the T - and change it to [Odorama (number) - (title edition)]
  5. Change the Title and date on the first and second slide
  6. Insert a video as a background of the first slide. This can be a video that you found on the internet or a video you created. Make sure the file is on Loop under ...
  7. Fill in the name of the curator (Frank Bloem, Caro Verbeek or Sanne Groeneveld)
  8. Fill in the lecturers names on the slides. In case the order changes, it is easy to shuffle them around.
  9. Fill in the title of the next Odorama and the date. In case there is an image for this edition, use it as a background.
  10. As there are different programs and operating systems, lecturers tend to send a .pptx or a pdf. This can take some time to transform to keynote. It might even happen that the links that were intended, are lost. This is why it is necessary to always save the powerpoint presentations also separately on the server in the same file.

F.A.Q.

  • My text disappears the moment I drag my image or video on the slide. How do I get my text back?
    Right-mouse-click on the image. Click send to back. Hopefully this solves the problem.
