Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Emphasis Animations

July 10, 2014

Emphasis Animations in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Emphasis Effect animations determine how the slide object calls attention to itself while it is on-the-slide. Entrance and Exit effect animations allow a slide object to enter or exit the slide area, whereas slide objects with Emphasis Effect animations are already there on the slide area before they start animating, and will be there even after they have finished animating. Typical Emphasis Effects are Spin and Grow/Shrink. You can also apply Emphasis Effect animations to text objects so that the fonts or the text colors change.

 Changing Color for Negative Data Series within Charts in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

In PowerPoint charts, when you choose to invert the fill for any negative option in a series of a chart, you end up seeing those negative series in the default white color. This is not a great option if your slide background is white or if you want negative series to show in red. In this tutorial, let us explore how to get over this limitation in PowerPoint 2013 using a workaround.

Learn how to change the default white color for negative values within charts in PowerPoint 2013.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Entrance Animations

July 9, 2014

Entrance Animations in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Among the several types of animations that PowerPoint 2013 provides, Entrance Effects are probably the most popular. By applying Entrance Effect animations, you can make your hitherto invisible slide object appear on the slide almost magically! You make them appear in the fraction of a second, or get them to fly in from any direction. You can also do a zoom in, or even better, just make it subtle with a simple fade in. Whatever Entrance Effects animation you choose, make sure to go for something that is in sync with the subject of your presentation.

Learn how you highlight the negative values in a chart by using the Invert if Negative option.
