Install Office Mobile on an iPhone
(or iOS Device)
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?

Office Mobile: Which iOS Models are Supported?
Now that Microsoft has released Office Mobile for iOS, the next question is
which iOS devices are essentially supported? As such,
Microsoft only claims support for the iPhone - but that does not mean that other
iOS devices are not compatible with Office Mobile.
On this page, we will explore which iOS devices can work with Office Mobile - do check
if your device is on this list!

Handmade Slides: Pushpins for PowerPoint – 10
Adding a pin to your picture or shape on a slide just emulates the way you “pin”
something onto a board. These digital pushpin graphics work the
same way so that your picture, shape, or anything else appears as
if it has been “pinned”! This tenth 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 presentation you will download –
all you need to do is copy the pushpin you need and then paste it on the edges of
pictures or shapes within your presentation slides.

Outline Pane Options
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.
Slide Sorter View
Most of the time, you are working on a single slide in your PowerPoint presentation --
but there are times when you want to copy,
duplicate, reorder, or even delete a bunch of slides. It's in scenarios like these
that you will encounter PowerPoint 2013's Slide
Sorter view. Among the various views available in PowerPoint 2013 to play and edit
your presentations, we have already covered both
Normal view and Outline view. Although Slide Sorter view does not let you edit
individual slide objects, but it does let you work with
the whole slide itself -- any edits made will influence one or more slides, depending upon your

Add Your Logo or Graphic to the Slide Master
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.
Add and Rename Slide Masters
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?
Duplicate Slide Masters
Duplicating a Slide Master is different from adding a new Slide Master. And
it's a time saving option because you don't have to make the
same changes all over again -- let's explain this with a scenario. Imagine
you have formatted your existing Slide Master by applying a
Background Style, adding a logo, or even adding your own Picture placeholder
layout. And now you want a new Slide Master that's almost
the same as your existing one -- but you want a different Theme Colors set
to be used. For such a small change, it is advisable that you
duplicate your existing Slide Master and then make any more changes
instead of starting all over again with a new Slide Master.

Word Clouds in Slides?
If you use word clouds in any of your presentations, what do you use to create them?
Audio files in converted videos
When I try to convert my slides that contain audio to a video, the audio shows as a link vs embedded.
Any suggestions how to coax it to embed and accept it?
Choppy MP4 Playback
I have an MP4 video. When played outside of PowerPoint it's smooth. Inside PowerPoint (2010 PC) it gets jumpy.
