Over your career, you develop expertise. But is your expertise recognized? You won’t gain the recognition you deserve until you demonstrate what you know in a compelling way. One of the best vehicles is an impressive presentation where you communicate your knowledge.

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac’s tri-paned interface has three regions: the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Notes Pane is placed right below the Slide Area. The Notes Pane provides space to add speaker’s notes that can be so helpful to the presenter while presenting. You can also write any sort of information about the presentation or individual slide.

Having trouble finding a market for your PowerPoint work? Perhaps you’re struggling to find students for your training service or clients for your design work. PowerPoint MVP Tom Howell has some great thoughts for you. Bret Freeman of Toastmasters says that his first presentation was not successful. Weeks went into preparing content. And then he explains how you can present and connect with your audience every time. And to conclude our featured stories this week, we bring back our tutorial and sample slides on creating the Star Wars style credits animation in PowerPoint.

PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn how different views in PowerPoint allow you to view and improve your slides with a differing perspective in each view. We also look at how you can reset, export, and import your Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) customizations, if you want to move to another computer, or just share your workflow with others. PowerPoint 2013 users can explore print options and PowerPoint 2010 users can identify whether they are running 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Microsoft Office; you just need to know where to look. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can read a walkthrough of the Slide Area. 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. Many sysadmins and even users run 32-bit Office within a 64-bit Windows environment because there are add-ins 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.

Find out whether your PowerPoint and Office 2010 version is 32 or 64-bit.

By Bret Freeman

My first presentation was not successful.  Weeks went into preparing content. I didn’t focus on “mindset” I needed for a great performance. Since then I have developed Communicating with P.O.W.E.R. – my own methodology.  Follows these steps and you’ll deliver successful speeches and presentations every time.

Presence: Mind, Voice and Body

Audience connection needs presence of mind

You can prime your audience for your message.  Use questions we can all respond to:  “Have you ever had to make a difficult decision?”   Or help your audience create a mental image. “Imagine the 4th of July in the blistering heat of a Southern Californian childhood. Even now I can smell the barbeque, taste the ice cream and feel my breathing as the neighborhood kids ran around playing baseball….”

This week we feature Chris Larson of Techsmith who talks about Snagit 2018, the new release of their screen capturing program. He even shares videos of his favorite new Snagit features. BrightCarbon, a UK design agency shares some amazing PowerPoint animated cards for Christmas and the New Year. Scott Wakefield talks about these cards, and why they are giving them away. Sharyn Fitzpatrick, one of our favorites talks how you can be well-prepared for a webinar. She speaks about an awesome checklist. Did you know that there can be three types of uppercase characters you can type within PowerPoint? This is one of those thoughts you have to share. And then we show you how you can use a $5000 font in your PowerPoint even though it is not installed on your system, and you don’t see it. But PowerPoint will still insist that the font is used!

PowerPoint 2016 users who followed last week’s customization tutorials now can learn to add their own commands to custom groups on the Ribbon. When you are happy with your Ribbon customizations, you can Reset, Export, and Import them. We also explore the amazing Touch and Mouse mode toggle. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users must explore the overlooked options within the Status Bar. For most Windows versions of PowerPoint, did you know that Microsoft provides STAMP, which means Sub-titling text add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint, and enables you to create captions for video and audio files within your PowerPoint presentations? 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.

Having trouble finding a market for your PowerPoint work? Perhaps you’re struggling to find students for your training service, or clients for your design work. Microsoft MVP Tom Howell says you shouldn’t throw in the towel just yet!


When we pitch to clients and run through our portfolio, there are two phrases I often hear:

I didn’t know PowerPoint could do that,” and “Do you guys do training?

So while there is a market for PowerPoint, finding it is not easy. In fact, I’d say your product (or service) is only about 30% of your journey. Most of your journey from there is finding and attracting your market. Here are some tips for finding your market:
