    SLIDE FORMAT (MS Office 2000)

    I am making a presentation for which I would like to use the slide master. However, for the first and the last slide I do not want to use the Master slide. Is there a way I can do this. Also how does one reduce the space between two lines of text. Like double spacing, single spacing or even less than single spacing.
    Thanks in advance.

    See PPT97: Simulating Use of More Than One Template in PowerPoint (applies to PowerPoint 2000 too). (Note: in PowerPoint 2002 and later, you can use multiple masters in one presentation)
    Multiple Design Templates may be useful too.

    Select Format | Line Spacing; you can specify line spacing, space before a paragraph and space after a paragraph, in lines or in points. The values you supply don't have to be whole numbers.

    I wouldn't set "line spacing" <1
    To adjust the space between paragraphs use before paragraph but note that this adds to line space settings
    eg for double spacing between paragraphs set before para to 1 and line spacing to 1
    Unless you are sure you need it leave after paragraph alone!

    You can also just hit Control+Enter to force a new line with no space between it and the one above. I often do that with bulletted lists where I have the main item as a bullet and sub-topics (in smaller font) under this bullet item but not their own bullets (which would happen if I hit the Enter key).
