Why would anyone want to duplicate slides? There are many reasons to do so. For example, you may want to create another slide that is similar to what you already have. Or you may need to use the same slide twice. Or perhaps create a slightly different table or chart than what you already have on an existing slide. Duplicating and editing slides is easier than redoing it from scratch. Whatever your reasons may be, it is easy to duplicate slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac in both the Slides Pane and Slide Sorter View.

As per Indian traditions, Sankranti is the day that denotes the transmigration of the sun from one zodiac constellation to another. Thus, Sankranti happens twelve times a year. However, most people refer to Makar Sankranti, a day when the sun transitions into the Capricorn constellation as Sankranti. Sankranti, which is also known by many other names in various parts of India is a popular harvest festival that symbolizes prosperity and the change of seasons.

Kites fly in the skies, and are almost an analogy for upliftment and looking upwards towards progress and success. We bring you PowerPoint-ready kite shapes in four variations.

These Kite shapes are already placed within slides and are available in both black and white. Do remember though that they can be recolored using PowerPoint’s native options for fills, lines, and effects. Just copy the Kite shape you like and paste into another PowerPoint slide, or even a Word document or Excel worksheet. All these Kite shapes are vector shapes, so you can easily edit them within your Microsoft Office program, and resize them without losing sharpness or clarity.

Welcome to the first issue of our newsletter this year, and wish you all an amazing 2018. Try using the awesome Replace Font feature in PowerPoint, and you may see the double-byte font warning. Or you may not see all fonts installed in your system in the ‘Replace With’ area. Not to worry, because this is like a snake bite that you can escape from! Successful leadership has an often overlooked characteristic; the need for leaders to be able to flex their style, dependent on the situation. Ally Yates explains more in her post. And that leads us to another problem that some presenters face. Over your career, you develop expertise. But is your expertise recognized? Laura Bruce has some thoughts to tide over that problem.

PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about the fabulous options available in Presenter View. We also explore Print options. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can understand the Notes Pane better, and PowerPoint Online users can benefit from the various views that the browser-based version of PowerPoint provides. 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 seven days.

Sometimes, you want to know whether you are running a 32 or 64-bit version of PowerPoint or Office. Yes, if you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, then there’s no ambiguity in the fact that you have to be running a 32-bit version of Office. But if you are running a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows, you may be running a 32 or a 64-bit version of Office. It is not uncommon for sysadmins and even users to run 32-bit Office within a 64-bit Windows environment. Why? That’s because there are add-ins for Office products that may not work in a 64-bit version of Office. Or you may have another reason. Luckily, it’s easy to identify 32-bit or 64-bit if you know where to look.
