Whenever you create or edit a presentation, certain personal information may be added to the file automatically—for example, information about the document's author. You can use Document Inspector to remove this type of information before sharing a presentation with others.
Because some changes may be permanent, it's a good idea to use Save As to create a backup copy of your presentation before using Document Inspector.
