Line charts can display continuous data over time, set against a common scale, and are therefore ideal for showing trends in data at equal intervals. In a line chart, category data is distributed evenly along the horizontal axis, and all value data is distributed evenly along the vertical axis. Line charts are best used to represent evenly spaced values such as months, quarters, or fiscal years.

Once you insert a video in your slide, you can crop it in almost the same way you crop a picture. The Crop option allows you to remove non-required areas of a video. For example, if the subject of your video is a person speaking who is surrounded by a large, distracting background of other people or moving objects, you may want to crop the video so that the cropped video now focuses more on the speaker, and gets rid of all the extra distractions.

After inserting a video within your presentation, you may see a blank/black rectangle instead—caused by the file format of the video clip inserted on the slide. Not all the formats show these blank/black rectangles. In fact, you may also see the first frame of the video clip in some cases. However, if you do see this blank/black rectangle, do note that it may look professional. With PowerPoint’s Poster Frame option, you can easily overcome this limitation, and change the black rectangle to a picture of your choice by selecting a frame from the video itself, or even a picture from a different source.

We first look at real 3D inside PowerPoint. Some of you will soon see this feature on your Office 365 equipped machines–we also have a cool video demo to share with you. James Toms of Pslides talks to us in an exclusive conversation. James is an advocate for minimalistic design and gets nervous when he sees too much text on a slide–he talks about content templates for PowerPoint. From TeamSlide Pro, we have Kartik Sundar who tell us more about their fascinating PowerPoint slide management product.

PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users will learn about Video Correction Adjustments, Video Recolor Options, Video Styles, and setting your default PowerPoint version. We also cover the last tutorial for PowerPoint 2013 users. Finally, do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates of this week.
