  • Change from Widescreen to Custom size.
  • Write the proportion you want. For default, could be 5.63 x 10 inches. The first value you will find, on the left, corresponds to the width. The second field, on the right, corresponds to the height. You can personalize these values as many as you want.

Please, take in mind that when you rotate an existing horizontal layout, this can alter the distribution or placement of the elements that were in the lateral areas of the slides. For that reason, it is preferable to start designing a vertical template from scratch instead of converting an existing one that was horizontal.

Another detail that might interest you is to know that to make a template for an A4 paper size, ready to print on a sheet of paper, the ideal size in vertical is 21.4 cm x 29.7 cm.

Remember that, to change the orientation again to horizontal, you have to repeat the same process on the Page Setup section, or simply clic on “CTR + Z” (Windows) or “Cmd + Z” (Mac) if that was the last step you did on your editing work. Anyway, you can change the orientation of your slides as many times as you want, so don’t be shy and test different styles until find the perfect for you!
