Within our better charts series, we ask you to look at tables rather than charts in some instances. We also explore how you can reverse engineer great looking charts. We also have two exclusive conversations for you -- the first one is with Patrick Speer who creates a slide library type addin called DynaPoint. Our second interview is with Afzal Amijee who talks about Vimodi, an iPad app that can make your PowerPoint experiences better.

PowerPoint 2013 users can learn about SmartArt, Video and Charts. We also explore Charts for PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users.

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

Sometimes, your chart data values are not so much different from each other -- this results in a chart which doesn't help your audience to see any difference between series representing those values. Fortunately, you can easily choose your own Maximum and Minimum values.

When you insert a video clip within a PowerPoint slide, you'll find it placed as a traditional rectangular shape. And while that's exactly what most users expect, it does seem safe and conventional. However, PowerPoint 2013 does allow you to have your video playing in different shapes such as a circle or oval, or a wave, a triangle, or any of the shapes that PowerPoint includes. Just the fact that a video can be placed within a shape is no reason to forego the conventional rectangle -- do remember that most other shapes may crop out important parts of your video clips.

Once you have inserted an organization chart (org chart) within PowerPoint 2013, you might need to change the layout of the org chart. The "layout" means how the subordinate levels in the hierarchy branch out from top to bottom -- probably you want all subordinates flushed to the left, hanging to the right, or distributed evenly across a horizontal plane -- you will learn more about how this works in this tutorial.

In PowerPoint 2013 if you want to enhance the look of your inserted video, you are certainly not limited to the options we have already explored including Corrections, Recolor, Video Styles, and Video Borders. In addition to these options, you can also apply Video Effects such as shadows, glows, bevels, 3-D rotation, etc. to your video clip. Follow these steps to learn more.

After inserting an Organization Chart (org chart) in PowerPoint 2013, you might need to add more shapes to your org chart. The default org chart that PowerPoint places has a few shapes. However, you might want to add more shapes, as well as newer hierarchy levels for the new shapes you add. Fortunately, you can make these additions and edits with just a click or two. Follow these steps to start adding more shape(s) to your org chart in PowerPoint 2013.

Did you read the title of this page correctly? Are we really suggesting that you should consider using a table rather than a chart? You might have heard the reverse more often -- about using charts rather than tables but like for everything else in life, there's not one glove that fits all hands -- or in this case, there's not one solution that can work with all sorts of data.



Explore how a simple table can sometimes show data better than a chart.
