Slide Masters govern the several default attributes for your slides such as the slide background, font choices, colors, and even the positioning of the placeholders. In many ways thus, the Slide Masters are the backend workers of your presentation. And even though the Slide Masters in PowerPoint 2003 only include limited functionality, you can still use this functionality to either edit existing Slide Masters or even create your own Slide Master.

The Gap width within a chart is the space between two series points -- this by default is set to 150% of the width of individual Data Series (columns). Usually the gap width is automatically calculated based on the chart data and the Plot Area. The space between two series' points will be very narrow if there are many data series, or very wide when there are few data series. Even then, there is scope for some change in the gap width -- you can quickly increase or decrease this width.

To make far reaching changes to your slides within PowerPoint 2003, you should always consider making these changes within the Slide Master rather than within individual slides – not only will this save you a load of time, but it will also make your slides look more consistent and professional.

When you create a new table in PowerPoint, you'll see some sort of default formatting applied to it. Most probably, you'll find that the table already has Banded rows and the Header row highlighted. While PowerPoint decides to turn on some of these Table Style Options, there are some that you can manually enable. All put together, you can play with 6 distinct Table Style Options that let you control the way through which table rows and/or columns can be made to stand apart.

Patterns in PowerPoint are two-color designs that include lines, dots, dashes and checks. PowerPoint includes 48 such patterns with names such as 5%, plaid, weaves, shingle, and zigzag. Pattern fills can be particularly pleasing as a fill, especially if you use a simple pattern that comprises two subtle colors. You apply a pattern fill to the Plot Area of a chart in the same way as you would apply a solid color, a gradient, a picture, or a texture fill. Follow these steps to learn more.

Many times one diagram can form the basis of another one! A distance cartogram can double as a target diagram -- or in case of what we explain in this issue -- it can function well as a hot-and-cold diagram! Over to our next topic for this issue -- we discuss Office Themes. Over a hundred of these have shipped as part of Microsoft Office installations but there seems to always be a different collection with each release -- find out which Themes shipped with which version in our exhaustive listing. We then show you how PCB files are useful for storing and removing PowerPoint interface customizations. We also have an exclusive conversation with Noah Menikoff who discusses FlightDeck, a solution that lets you catalog and create PowerPoint slides.

PowerPoint 2013 for Windows users can learn about points, lines, and Themes. PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users can learn that there are ways in which you can make your chart Plot Area look different. And PowerPoint 2003 users will learn about PCB files. And if you are using PowerPoint 2010, learn how you can set any template or Theme as the default for new presentations.

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