We look at how an add-in for PowerPoint lets you add tweets within PowerPoint, in our Displaying Tweets in PowerPoint Using DataPoint feature. Manuel Onate speaks about his add-in, PowerTOC that creates TOCs and more. And we re-explore our feature on 30 million presentations being created each year. We also look at the filters in Bing Image Search–this week we look at the Color and Type filters.

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can learn from our tutorials about pictures this week. We look at inserting pictures, linking them, and Text Autofit options. And if that wasn’t enough for this week, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates released in the last week.

Duplicating a Slide Master is a little different than adding a new Slide Master from scratch. And it is a smarter option because you do not have to make the same changes all over again. Let’s explain this with a scenario. Imagine you have formatted your existing Slide Master by applying a Background Style, adding a logo, or even adding your own Picture placeholder layout. And now you want a new Slide Master that’s almost the same as your existing one, but you want a different Theme Colors set to be used. For such a small change, it is advisable that you duplicate your existing Slide Master and make the small changes instead of starting all over again with a new Slide Master.

In your presentation, a Slide Master is the element that influences everything, be it the slide background or the fonts used for text. Despite having different layouts, all slides in a presentation share a common look, which is provided by the Slide Master. There will be at least one Slide Master in every presentation. However, while adding slides from other presentations, you may end up adding more Slide Masters inadvertently to your presentation. So, how do you know how many Slide Masters your presentation contains? And, how do you add another one? In fact, why do you need another Slide Master at all? Whatever your opinion may be, it’s actually quite easy to add a new Slide Master.

Does this automatic hand-holding by PowerPoint interrupt your work? Well, you really don’t have to worry because you can control this default behavior of PowerPoint.
