PowerPoint Infographics: Bucket Diagrams
PowerPoint Infographics: Bucket Diagrams

Bucket diagrams are so expressive, useful, and direct in the message they provide. Yes, these diagrams have everything to do with buckets and the water they contain. While the buckets themselves represent a source or destination, the water represents the financial liquidity. Buckets show items in a distribution, they represent the flow of things, or show collections of items. An empty bucket can indicate the capacity to which it can be filled. A bucket pouring water in another could represent distribution. You can have buckets that are full, empty, or somewhat full. And you can also pour the water from one bucket to another!

Uploading PowerPoint File to OneDrive

OneDrive is a cloud offering from Microsoft that at its basic level, is completely free for anyone to use. The only requirement is that you need to have a Microsoft account. Thereafter OneDrive allows you to share your files with anyone or everyone. Having said so, you first need to upload the file to OneDrive.
Open PowerPoint File from OneDrive within Desktop Application

All your PowerPoint files which are uploaded, created, or saved on OneDrive can be edited anytime -- right within the PowerPoint Online web app that runs within your browser. But that's not the only way you can edit these PowerPoint files. Yes, OneDrive also provides you the option to edit it within PowerPoint desktop applications. In this tutorial we'll first explore how to open a file in your PowerPoint desktop applications from within OneDrive. You will need to have the latest versions of PowerPoint installed on your Windows or Mac operating systems.

While collaborating on a presentation with someone else, there will be times when you want to give and receive feedback without actually editing the slides themselves. In situations such as these, the Comments option works very well. We earlier learned how to Add, Edit, or Delete Comments within the PowerPoint 2010 (desktop application). In this tutorial we'll explain how to use commenting and at the same time collaborate between PowerPoint Online and PowerPoint 2010.

Open and Close Paths

The Shapes Gallery in PowerPoint consists various shapes, both open and closed. Most of the shapes in this gallery are closed shapes, for example, a Rectangle, an Ellipse, and a Triangle. There are also a few open shapes such as the straight point to point line. Also, there are some drawing tools let you draw both open and closed shapes -- these are the Freeform Line, Curve, and Scribble tools. In addition, you can convert any closed shape into an open shape and vice versa, as you will learn in this tutorial.
