We bring you another series of animated gears this time. We then explore Ellen Finkelstein's series of the new Outstanding Presentations workshops. Kurt Dupont then explains how the PresentationLand site demonstrates the use of databases within PowerPoint slides -- there are also ready-to-use slides that update with world news dynamically. And Naomi Baron thoughtfully explains why a printed book is not the same as an ebook, and why all this stuff matters to PowerPoint users!

PowerPoint 2013 users can learn about SmartArt, Slide Transitions, Custom Shows, and measuring Diagonal Lines.

And finally, do not miss the new discussions and templates of this week!

This can be helpful if you want one shape to be larger than the others -- maybe you want one shape to stand out? Whatever be the reason behind you wanting to resize these shapes, this tutorial will explore how you can resize individual shapes within a SmartArt graphic in PowerPoint 2013.

Typically the Data Series of a chart in PowerPoint is displayed in the exact sequence in which it is contained within the Excel sheet. If you want to change the order of the Data Series within the chart, you access the Excel sheet containing the chart data and reorder the columns representing the Data Series. But, what if you don't want to alter the Excel data, and want to reorder the Data Series within the PowerPoint chart itself? That's doable, and this tutorial will explain the process.

The default look of SmartArt graphics works great, and you may not want to change a thing! Yet, it's good to know that you can change your SmartArt graphics to other layouts, change the color of SmartArt graphics, or apply a SmartArt Style to make your SmartArt graphic appear distinct and unique. You can also change the actual shapes within a SmartArt graphic -- for instance you can change some circles in your SmartArt graphic to squares with a mere click or two!

You may have started scratch with inserting a new chart on your PowerPoint slide. This of course brings up an instance of the Excel sheet with some dummy data -- and indeed you can type in your own data to replace this dummy data. However, what if you already have some data that's within an Excel sheet -- can you use that data to create your PowerPoint chart? The answer is yes, and that's what you are going to learn in this tutorial.

All shapes arranged with geometric precision – this can look very organized but also robotic and unnatural. What if you could make all these straight shapes look curved – almost as if they are hand-drawn? Won’t that look more organic? If you agree, then you will certainly love this new series of irregular shapes for PowerPoint. Perfect shapes and boxes everywhere, all neatly lined up! Yes, such arrangements look clean, but also monotonous! What if you could make all these shapes curved, slanted, and natural looking – they are hand-drawn? Won’t that look more organic? If you agree, then you will certainly love these new irregular shapes for PowerPoint.



Download and use these shapes in your slides.

When colors are changed for a SmartArt graphic, the only change that happens is to the fill colors of the the individual shapes within the SmartArt. Other niceties such as outlines or effects are not altered. Rather than individually add these attributes to your SmartArt, you can use the all-inclusive SmartArt Styles option to overcome this limitation. In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply SmartArt Styles to the selected SmartArt graphics in PowerPoint 2013.
