PowerPoint templates are available for download to the members of the GitHub organization on Google Drive.

Creating a new presentation

A new presentation can be created using either the .potx file or the .pptx file.

.potx vs .pptx: What's the difference?

Both the .potx and the .pptx will open and create a new document.

  • A .potx is a template file which will create a new presentation with the presentation system theming (slides, colors, type) already in place.
  • A .pptx will open like a normal file. When using select Save a Copy or rename the file specific to the presentation.

Tip: The design systems team recommends using the template(.potx) file as this will start a fresh document with everything loaded right away. 😄
