Both are different products, intended for different audiences, and even the way in which you create and save files is not so similar for both programs. Yes, there are similarities—and that may be because both create presentations, and can include text, pictures, multimedia, and more.
We first look at getting started with Microsoft Sway and creating online presentations. We then feature Claudyne Wilder who provides tips so that you are better prepared for your next presentation. We also bring back an older feature in which Hermann Narez explains how you can choose pictures effectively for slides.
PowerPoint users of all versions will learn about creating outlines in Excel. PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can explore how to Import Outlines.
