Default Agenda Designs

When an agenda gets created the agenda design is searched for in the following order:

  1. Current Document (Layout named “SP Agenda” or “SP TOC”)
  2. Defaults.spzip (containing an agenda design)
  3. The hard-coded SlideProof Agenda default

Storing options for Agenda Designs

When creating an agenda design you have the following options to store them:

  1. Publish as Master Template – any documents based on this file will have the same agenda design
  2. Publish as Agenda Design – the agenda design appears in the Libary and can be manually applied to the current document. This is good for publishing alternative designs with different columns etc.
  3. Publish as Default Agenda Design – save the file as “Defaults.pptx” and Publish as Agenda or Mixed Mode. This will store the agenda design to be the default for presentations where no agenda design is in.
