VBA: Change UPPERCASE To Normal Case

VBA: Change UPPERCASE To Normal Case

When you add slides to a presentation based on some of PowerPoint’s built-in Themes, you may find that all titles (headings and/or subheads) scream out in UPPERCASE letters, no matter what you do! In some cases, this behavior may happen because the chosen font contains only uppercase letters. Alternatively, and more likely, the presentation’s Theme has placeholders set to produce all uppercase (aka capital) letters. The Circuit and Integral themes that come with some versions of PowerPoint are examples of such Themes.

How to Disagree Constructively: by Ally Yates

How to Disagree Constructively: by Ally Yates

Disagreement is nothing to be fearful of – it’s an inevitable part of working within a business team. However, it’s essential it is done constructively. When teams are working together effectively they use disagreeing and supporting verbal behaviors in equal amounts.

Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

All Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint 2016 may have any number of buttons that represent commands but they are not scattered all over the tab area. In fact, they are all neatly arranged together in Groups. Each of these Groups has a name that describes what the commands within that Group do. For example, the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon has a group named Set Up, which contains all commands that help you set up your slide show, such as changing show settings, hiding slides, rehearsing and recording slide shows, etc.

Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

View your same slides in different PowerPoint views, and you will see them from another angle. This approach makes sense because viewing slides in Slide Show view gives an entirely different perspective than editing them in Normal view. Further, it's easier to reorder and work with multiple slides in Slide Sorter view and make changes to individual slides in Normal view. All put together, PowerPoint 2016 for Mac provides you with nine different views. Seven of these views can be accessed from the View tab of the Ribbon.

Learn about various views that allow you to edit and show slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.

Touch/Mouse Mode in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Touch/Mouse Mode in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Look closely at the interface within PowerPoint 2013, particularly the Customize Quick Access Toolbar drop-down menu, and you’ll find the Touch/Mouse Mode command. This essentially is a toggle button that alternates between touch and mouse modes. Touch mode is the default mode when using PowerPoint on a touch device such as the Microsoft Surface or other tablets, and lets you use the program even without a mouse. And Mouse mode is the default mode for PowerPoint 2013 when working on a non-touch enabled desktop or laptop. The larger question though is why you can toggle to the Touch mode in a non-touch device. If you are using PowerPoint on a desktop, why you need the Touch mode?
