Microsoft has finally released an iOS app called Office Mobile that lets you work with Microsoft Office documents such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint - the app does have many limitations and caveats but it’s a start - the biggest benefit is that your file formats remain unchanged and the file fidelity is preserved - this probably is Microsoft Office Mobile's largest USP. So how do you install this app on your iOS device?

The Slide Master is a very important part of your presentation that influences the appearance of everything you see on the slide -- from the slide background to the fonts used for text. All slides in your presentation may have different layouts -- and each of these layouts may have different placeholder arrangements. However, they all share a common look -- that look is provided by the Slide Master. Every presentation has at least one Slide Master. However, if you constantly keep adding slides from other presentations, you may have inadvertently added more Slide Masters to your presentation. So how do you know how many Slide Masters your presentation contains? And how do you add another one? In fact, why do you need another Slide Master at all?
Welcome to another issue – this time, we have conversations with Harman Singh of authorSTREAM and Motti Nisani of emaze – both discuss different directions in the world of online presentations. And Claudyne Wilder explains how to use dialogue to enhance your story. We cover picture placeholders for Mac users of PowerPoint 2011 – and Windows users can learn more about the various views in PowerPoint 2013. From this issue onwards, we will provide links to popular discussions on our LinkedIn groups – and also provide you with information about our new PowerPoint templates. Have a great week!
The Outline view in PowerPoint 2013 essentially brings up the Outline pane on the left side of PowerPoint 2013 interface -- note that this now replaces the Slides pane that shows up in Normal view. Also, any changes you want to make to your outline can be made through right-click options -- and we'll show you how you can do so.
You may have observed an omnipresent company logo on many slides in a presentation -- and that raises a question: do you really need to have a company logo on all your slides? First, it takes a fair amount of space. Secondly, the audience knows which company the speaker belongs to since that information is almost always placed on the first slide. Also speakers do introduce themselves and their companies -- so, why do all slides need that extra branding? All these questions are fair, and there are equally honest answers for them. You should certainly add a company logo to your first slide, and then place a more subtle or watermarked logo on the rest of the slides -- or even no logo at all.
More pushpins for you! A pin on a board that lets you place a paper note or a picture is something that holds attention of the viewer. Of course, a pin can also make a statement. Now do the same with content on your slides - hold your audience's attention and make a statement by using our ready-made pushpin graphics. This new set of pushpin graphics in 5 colors has been added to our existing collection of pushpin graphics on your slides! All pushpin graphics are contained within the PowerPoint slides that you will download. Just copy them and paste them on the edges of pictures in your presentation.

Handmade Slides: Using Scanned Pictures
Using pictures in your slides does not mean that you are limited to using photographs from stock photo houses. You can certainly use your own camera -- either a digital camera or even the camera built within your phone to source your own pictures. You can also look at some unconventional sources, such as a scanner. A scanner? Yes, that's a device that several of us have not used for many years now -- but if you have one of these devices attached to your computer, do consider it as a source of visual content.
