Video Shape in PowerPoint 2013

When you insert a video clip within a PowerPoint slide, you'll find it placed as a traditional rectangular shape. And while that's exactly what most users expect, it does seem safe and conventional. However, PowerPoint 2013 does allow you to have your video playing in different shapes such as a circle or oval, or a wave, a triangle, or any of the shapes that PowerPoint includes. Just the fact that a video can be placed within a shape is no reason to forego the conventional rectangle -- do remember that most other shapes may crop out important parts of your video clips.

Once you have inserted an organization chart (org chart) within PowerPoint 2013, you might need to change the layout of the org chart. The "layout" means how the subordinate levels in the hierarchy branch out from top to bottom -- probably you want all subordinates flushed to the left, hanging to the right, or distributed evenly across a horizontal plane -- you will learn more about how this works in this tutorial.

Consider Tables

Did you read the title of this page correctly? Are we really suggesting that you should consider using a table rather than a chart? You might have heard the reverse more often -- about using charts rather than tables but like for everything else in life, there's not one glove that fits all hands -- or in this case, there's not one solution that can work with all sorts of data.

Explore how a simple table can sometimes show data better than a chart.
