PowerPoint Concept Slides: Segment Square,
Pentagon, and Hexagon
These Segment graphics are part of our Segment Polygons
series -- this week, we bring you a Square
, and a Hexagon
divided into four, five, and six equal segments respectively.
Each individual segment is a separate shape that can be filled in with a picture, a gradient,
a solid fill, or any of the other PowerPoint fill types.
Animation is movement -- and nothing captures attention of the human eye like a 'little' movement.
More movement does not get more attention -- in fact too much animation results in distraction.
Even if you decide to use just a wee bit of animation, that can still be an approach that will go
astray if your animation is not relevant to your slide content. Also animation needs to be part of
your story -- something that you plan from the moment you develop your slide content -- and not
something that you add at the last moment to bring in some pizzazz! Clearly there are a few
guidelines that you must be aware of before using any animation in your slides -- here are some
thoughts to get you started.
Explore guidelines that will help you use animation more effectively in your slides.
Learn PowerPoint 2013: Change Presentation Aspect Ratio from Widescreen to Standard (and Vice Versa)
Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Set Standard 4:3 Aspect Ratio as Default
In previous tutorials, we explored and complained about how PowerPoint 2013 has made widescreen (16:9) as the default
aspect ratio for new presentations. Although you can change all these new presentations from widescreen (16:9) to
standard (4:3) aspect ratio quite easily, it can be a pain to remember doing so each time you create a new presentation!
Of course, if you are happy with 16:9 slides, then you need not read the rest of this tutorial -- for everyone else, we'll
show how you can set your default aspect ratio to standard (4:3).
