Visual cliché is an area that deserves more attention, and we bring you a new installment of our PowerPoint Cliché series. This time we explore pictures with Stacks of Coins. We also look at one of PowerPoint's weak areas; it has never complained about a missing font and substitutes any fonts not found with no logic explained. Worse, there's no way to identify a substituted font. We explore how you can report to Microsoft, and also we look at a workaround. In the Tutorials section, PowerPoint 2016 users can learn about inserting online pictures and resizing, rotating and flipping pictures. We also look at recoloring picture backgrounds to improve text legibility. PowerPoint 2010 users can explore ways to view and manage add-ins. Finally, do not miss the new press releases and templates of this week.

Later, in subsequent tutorials of this series, you will learn more about the individual options we discuss in this tutorial.

When PowerPoint 2016 is launched, you see the Presentation Gallery. You will notice the bright orange section on the left side of the Presentation Gallery.

PowerPoint add-ins are awesome, small mini-programs that patch inside PowerPoint to extend abilities. While most add-ins automatically show up inside PowerPoint, some of them need to be loaded manually. And there may be times when you want to disable an add-in rather than completely uninstalling it. It's possible to view, load and manage add-ins manually within PowerPoint, as we will show you in this tutorial.
