Perfect squares and rectangles everywhere, all neatly lined up! Yes, that looks clean, but also monotonous! What if you could make all these shapes curved, slanted, and natural looking – like waves in the sea? Won't that look more organic? If you agree, then you will certainly love these new irregular shapes for PowerPoint.
You might have seen these types of arrow segments that form a circle -- they are frequently used in slides that show processes, continuous sequences, and cycle diagrams.

There's more to text animation than just adding some movement to your selected text. By default, when you animate a text placeholder or text box, all the text contained animates at one go unless your text content is within a bulleted or numbered list -- in that case, all text animates as sequenced paragraphs. Even then, the animation is sequenced to first level paragraphs (first level bullets) -- and any sub-bullet levels contained in your text placeholders or text boxes animate along with the parent level.
After recording narrations within Adobe Presenter, or even after importing audio files for your slides, you do not hit a road block. There's so much more that you can do with your narrations, and Adobe Presenter lets you edit the timing of PowerPoint animations to synchronize better with audio files. For instance, let us imagine that you are working on a slide with bulleted text that has entrance animations. You can use the Sync option to adjust animation timings so that the narrative matches the text being animated.
First of all, look at these awesome Irregular Shapes, that you can get for next to nothing. Then we explore 3 of our favorite and free stencil fonts. We then look at the Preview options in Adobe Presenter, one of the most full-featured PowerPoint add-in products. We also have an exclusive interview with Dr. James Smith about his amazing new book, Meaningful Graphs. PowerPoint 2013 users can learn about animating tables without actually animating them! We also look at motion path animations, editing them, and the new position previews introduced in PowerPoint 2013. You will also learn about animation events, animation speed, and removing animations. We also explore switching series and categories for charts.
We have already explored how you can animate any slide object, and then tweak the animation speed and animation events. Although you add animation to a chart in the same way as you animate any other object, PowerPoint provides some extra animation options that are applicable only to charts. For example, you can animate series and categories individually as required. If your example chart is a column chart, then you can individually control the animation of every single column!
Once you have installed Adobe Presenter, the first thing you possibly want to do is to open your existing PowerPoint presentation and start adding voice narrations to the slides. You could of course use PowerPoint's built-in Record Slides option to add narrations, but Adobe Presenter has many more options, which we will explore within this tutorial.

While Google may have the largest and most up-to-date search index, other search providers like Microsoft's Bing need to up the ante by providing more usability options so that visitors can get more optimum and narrowed-down results.
