PowerPoint and Presenting News: February 11, 2014

In this issue, we first explore why all colors are not the same within your slides, even though they may first appear to look the same! Confused? Then do explore how you can change the tints and shades of colors that show up within the Theme color galleries in PowerPoint. We then begin a whole new series on using PowerPoint on touch devices such as the Microsoft Surface. And Claudyne Wilder gives you some great advice on how you can hear your inner dialogue, and then do something about it!

PowerPoint 2013 for Windows users can learn about using patterns as slide backgrounds, and also how you can draw a semicircle (yes, there’s no semicircle option in PowerPoint’s Shape galleries). PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users can learn about the thickness of table borders, and how you can add fills and effects to tables. Plus get started with Callout shapes.

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