We first examine working with fonts in PowerPoint. We explore how there are two types of PowerPoint users: those who never change fonts, and those who always do! Did you know that it is possible to export every single slide in your PowerPoint presentation as a separate presentation? And really–you need nothing other than PowerPoint. We show you how. We also look at slide dimension size differences in different versions of PowerPoint. We then look at the differences between Office 2016 and Office 365. Plus, did you know that you can get Microsoft Office for free? Or even at a very low rate?

For users of PowerPoint Online, the web version of PowerPoint, we explore the interface which is very similar to the interface in desktop versions of PowerPoint. We also look at Reordering Sections in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows. Finally, do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates of this week.

This web version of PowerPoint called PowerPoint Online lets you create and edit PowerPoint presentations online, and can be easily accessed on OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud platform.

Observe people creating PowerPoint decks, and you can easily divide them all into two distinct groups, based on their usage of fonts:

  1. Those who never change fonts, and use whatever PowerPoint defaults to.
  2. Those who change fonts all the time!

People in the former group are those who just need to finish creating their slide decks, or those who have strict corporate guidelines that prevent them from changing fonts. Everyone else is part of the second group.

You can also move slides from one Section to another, change the order of Sections, or collapse/expand Sections etc. Of course, you can also remove a Section.
