Keyboard Sequences: PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Many users are familiar with keyboard shortcuts for PowerPoint 2016 -- 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.

Storyline in Sway

Sway has a three pane interface. The leftmost area typically sports the All Cards pane, and that can be turned off by clicking the Close button on its top-left area. The rightmost area is reserved for the Preview pane. Right in between these two panes is Sway's Storyline area. All Cards you create and edit within Sway live within the Storyline.
Media Cards in Sway

Cards in Sway are containers for various types of content - and are available in one of three Categories. These three Categories are Text, Media, and Group. We have already explored the Text Cards category - and now we will start exploring the various types of Media Cards. To view the types of Media Cards available, you will first need to insert a Card in your Sway Storyline.
Picture Cards in Sway

Sway is an amazing tool that lets you play with disparate objects such as text, pictures, charts, multimedia, and even social media - all in one cohesive platform! Each object in Sway needs a home of its own - and Sway calls these "container" homes Cards. Let us now explore how you can work with Picture Cards in Sway.
Video Cards in Sway

We've already explored quite a bit within our Microsoft Sway tutorials, but we will reiterate that you cannot just add any content to your Sways without first adding a Card that will hold that content. So these Cards are essentially containers for your content. To place your video content in Sway, you will first therefore need to insert a Video Card, and that's precisely what we will learn within this tutorial.
