The situation is familiar: you or someone else uses a non-standard font (not a PowerPoint safe font) in your presentation. You then open this same presentation on another computer, and PowerPoint uses another font to display the same text. Why does it do so? The reason is simple enough: the font originally used is not available on the other system. The end user has no idea that PowerPoint substituted one font with another. There is no information provided at all. The font that is used as a substitute cannot be identified. If you have 500 fonts on your system, there’s no way to understand why PowerPoint used a certain font as a substitute.

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.
Add-ins are mini-programs that add new capabilities to PowerPoint. Some of these add-ins blend so seamlessly within PowerPoint; they almost appear to be PowerPoint-native options! At other times, you may have installed a new add-in but see no indication of any new, expected abilities within the program interface. Fortunately, PowerPoint provides a listing of all installed add-ins.
Adding a busy, multi-colored picture background to your slides is one of the worst things you can do to your PowerPoint presentation. People do so all the time, and in the process, they compromise the subtlety and contrast of any content on their slides. So why do they do so? As a picture, their chosen content may appear awesome. However, placing the same picture as a backdrop for text, charts, shapes, or other slide objects just work. Fortunately, you can reduce the visual noise in any picture by using the Recolor option within PowerPoint.
Let's admit that coins can look beautiful, especially if they are golden! Add an interesting light source and a stack of gold coins does appear warm and secure. However, what was once interesting can soon become boring; and then you may no longer like pictures that contain neat stacks of properly arranged coins.
