Several corporate designs can be placed in empower 7. A corporate design is able to be assigned to one or more masters and contains predefined colors, fonts, and one or several agenda templates. You are also optionally free to create a template folder for each respective corporate design. If you have a master in 4:3 and 16:9 formats, you may also set two designs in order to use two different agenda templates and text elements. If you use different brands in your company, you can also set a different design for each brand and master.
A design is active when the master is connected to it. For example, in “Fonts and Colors” in the empower ribbon, only the fonts, sizes and colors that have been approved for this design are available. The agenda editor will also only provide those layouts that have previously been set for this design. If specific folders in the template library have been allocated to this design, they will also be automatically displayed in the template folders of the Quick Access pane. Design Check will examine each slide according to the guidelines of the selected design.
New designs can only be set and curated by the corporate design admin in the corporate design section of empower. You will find further information in chapter “Designs”.
When saving a master to the library, you are, however, able to assign a design to it. Select the desired design and click “Assign”. Alternatively, you can select “Don’t assign”.
If no design is assigned to a master, empower will approve ALL designs allocated in empower for slides containing this underlying master. This means all fonts, font sizes, colors, and all agenda templates are made available for use.
