Add and Remove Menus
Customizing of a program interface is always desirable for power users -- yet even if you are not a power user, you can still benefit from some basic customizing -- this is akin to rearranging your office desk to whatever makes you more productive and comfortable. Within PowerPoint 2011 for Mac, you can customize the interface to a large extent based on your requirements -- the ability to add and remove custom Toolbars is one such customization option. Additionally, you can also add or remove entire Menus to/from your Menu Bar, as explained in the following steps.

Add and Remove Menu Commands
Customizing your PowerPoint Interface is something that lets you place your favorite commands at a position that is easily accessible to you -- PowerPoint lets you customize in various ways including adding custom Toolbars and then populating them with commands. In the same way, you can add your own menus -- you then populate those menus with your favorite commands. In this tutorial, we will learn how you can add and remove menu commands in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.

File Formats
Quick -- how many file formats (types) can PowerPoint 2013 save your slides to? If you take count of every single format from the necessary to the irrelevant (and forget the missing ones), then the number is 28. Some of these could be genuinely helpful (such as the new MPEG-4 Video export in PowerPoint 2013) and others such as GIF, JPG, PNG, WMF, and EMF ensure that you get good graphic outputs. And RTF outlines can sometimes be a boon.
File Types that can be Opened
Programs such as PowerPoint are a very significant part of our workflows not just because of their vast abilities but also because they can understand content from so many file formats. These include file types that PowerPoint can save and open -- we already explored file types that PowerPoint 2013 can save to -- but when you go and look at the file types that PowerPoint 2013 can open, you'll find that the list of file types is not exactly the same - there are several omissions and additions compared to that list. When you access the Open dialog in PowerPoint 2013, you can choose the file type you want to open.

Getting Started with Flowcharts
A flowchart is a diagram that explains a process visually and sequentially in a series of steps -- each such step is represented visually by a flowchart symbol. Common flowchart symbols look no different than your regular oval, diamond, or rectangle shapes. Each of these shapes can be connected to another with lines that have arrows on one end indicating the direction of a flowchart process.
