Thoughts and impressions of happenings in the world of PowerPoint and presentations, continuously updated since 2003.
We explored the General tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box earlier. For more options, you can visit the Advanced tab of the same dialog box that contains some advanced, and some not-so-advanced options related to the appearance and working of the PowerPoint interface. Changes to these options can result in a very different and more efficient workflow.
We look at the concept of Content Organization, specifically for presentation slides in this post by AlexAnndra Ontra and James Ontra. Next, we share some general options available in PowerPoint that most users are not aware of, but they should be because understanding these options can result in a very different and more efficient workflow. We also look at Logo Toggle, a free PowerPoint add-in from BrightCarbon that lets you hide and unhide logos with one click in a video tutorial.
We also bring you quotes, press releases, and templates from the last few days.
The General tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box contains basic, yet some very important options related to the appearance and working of the PowerPoint interface. Changes to these options can result in a very different and more efficient workflow.
In today’s video, we will look at a scenario where you have a company logo placed in your PowerPoint presentation. This logo shows up on all sides. In addition to the company logo, you also have a product logo on some slides. This profusion of logos makes some corporate bosses very happy but there’s a downside. What if you have slide content that’s large and fills up the entire area? Or what if you have a detailed chart and the logo covers up the chart legend?
We first look at how you can send feedback to Microsoft about something you like or don’t like in PowerPoint from right within the application. We then explore how you can attribute Creative Commons Pictures in PowerPoint slides. We also look at attributing multiple pictures on one slide.
We feature two more speakers from the upcoming Presentation Summit conference being held this September. They are Ilene Bergelson and Rick Altman. We also bring you quotes, press releases, and templates from the last few days.
