Sticky Tape for PowerPoint – 01
These "sticky tape" graphics are already placed in PowerPoint slides -- just copy them and
paste within your slides to create a look that makes a picture, shape, or anything else appear as if it has been stuck
on a surface, board, or wall with tape! These ready-made sticky tape segments are already within PowerPoint slides --
and have been provided in 10 colors -- all colors have various transparency variations. All these sticky tape segments
can be rotated and resized, as required. Since they are essentially pictures, all types of edits that you can do with
pictures work with them too!
Download these sticky tapes, and use them in your slides
Keyboard Sequences: PowerPoint 2013 for Windows
Many users are familiar with keyboard shortcuts -- yet there are no real
shortcuts for tasks users need to perform all the time -- this includes changing PowerPoint's views or
even aligning or reordering slide objects. Thankfully, there are many keyboard sequences that work for
these tasks. Most sequences entail that you press two buttons -- and then press a third button after a
moment. So if the keyboard sequence is listed as Alt+S > H -- then you must press the Alt and S keys
together -- let go those two keys and then press the H key.

Change The Pace -- Keep Your Audience's Attention
There is a belief floating around out there about presenting that goes
something like this: "We've got to be consistent. Act consistent. Look consistent. Talk in the same consistent
voice. Show the same slides. This will brand our company." Yes, that will certainly brand your company with
your audience. They'll think of you as the company that makes boring presentations. We will talk about the
slides another time. Today let's talk about the presenter.

Align Shapes to Center of Slide
We have already shown you how to align shapes in PowerPoint 2013 -- however for alignment to work, you need
to have more than one shape (or any other slide object) selected so that they can align to each other.
However, you may want to align just one shape (or even a single group of shapes) to the exact center of
your slide. Fortunately, that is easy to achieve, as explained in the following steps.
The placement of the slide objects on your slide can make so much difference. And proper spacing in-between
the slide objects plays an important role in making your slides look aesthetic. Although distributing shapes
is a simple concept it make a big difference to the symmetry of your slide content. Most of the time,
distribution is used along with alignment.

Setting Proofing Language for Text
English is spelled and pronounced differently in various parts of the world. For example, color is perfectly valid spelling
in the US, but not so in the UK. And PowerPoint works different too depending upon which language settings have been specified
-- if your proofing language is set to English (UK), then the spell checker will suggest that the word color needs to be changed
to colour. Clearly, the fact that PowerPoint adds red squiggly underlines to properly spelled words can be a nuisance -- but
that's something you can rectify. In such situations you first need to have proofing tools installed for all or any of the
languages that you need to work within PowerPoint.
Guidelines on Changing Proofing Language for an Entire Presentation
While it is easy to change proofing language for selected text containers, that happens to be a great time waster
if you need the language changed across all content in all slides! There are two ways to set the proofing language
for your entire presentation -- and you can use any of these approaches. Make sure you have the proofing tools
installed for all or any of the languages that you need to work within PowerPoint.
Edit Chart Data
When you insert a chart in PowerPoint 2011, you might notice that Excel pops up with some dummy data for
your chart -- you then change the data within the Excel sheet to auto-update the chart within PowerPoint.
However, this Excel instance that stores your data has no separate existence -- there's no separate Excel
sheet that contains your data. In fact, this Excel sheet is stored within your PowerPoint presentation itself.
Now, what do you do when you want to edit the underlying data?
