Slide design depends so much on visual layouts, and Connie Malamed discusses this vital topic in this exclusive conversation this week. She also talks about her new book, Visual Design Solutions. Now that the Morph transition is available in some releases of PowerPoint, why not see what design houses are doing with this exciting new feature? And Damjan Haylor of POPcomms, a UK based design house talks about how they are using Morph so effectively. We then feature Maurizio La Cava, who talks about his MLC add-in for PowerPoint that lets you accomplish your tasks rapidly. Fred Miller is inspired by Apple’s old slogan, “Think Different” — and he finds that it is so valid even today. We also get you a presentation on St. Patrick’s Day and show how you can add your Dubsmash videos to PowerPoint slides on the iPad.
PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about using custom backgrounds for Slide Masters and Layouts, and also how you can duplicate, rename and edit existing Layouts. You will also explore adding new Slide Layouts. PowerPoint 2013 for Windows users can find out about the under-explored Screen Tips option for hyperlinks. And Sway users can find out about removing and revoking Shares. Finally, do not miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
