Making edits to your slide objects quickly can be an asset for your time — but awesome slides are created painstakingly, and use a large amount of time. Slide designers often play around with different fill options to make their slides look awesome — or even make umpteen changes to how their text appears. PowerPoint 2013 does provide most editing options to make these alterations within the Ribbon tabs, and you can also populate your Quick Access Toolbar with frequently used commands. Yet, all of these involve moving your cursor above the Slide Area and back continuously. While this may not really result in Carpal tunnel syndrome for your palms, it helps to know that PowerPoint 2013 also includes the Mini Toolbar, a floating toolbar that spawns right next to the cursor — and it is also available instantly with a right-click!
