Multiline typefaces typically have several parallel lines and are best suited for heading text. Even better, these work well when the text is placed above a picture or textured background, as long as the visual is not too crowded. Prisma, one of such fonts was created in the last century by Rudolf Koch, a German type designer.

Slide Sorter View

Most of the time, you may work 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 2016's Slide Sorter view. Among the various views available in PowerPoint 2016 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 selection.
Mini Toolbar

PowerPoint 2016 does provide most editing options to make alterations within the Ribbon tabs, and you can also populate your Quick Access Toolbar with frequently used commands. Yet, all these tasks involve moving your cursor to the Ribbon, located above the Slide Area and back continuously. While this movement may not result in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it helps to know that PowerPoint 2016 also includes the Mini Toolbar, a floating toolbar that spawns right next to the cursor, and it is also available instantly with a right-click!
Reading View

The repertoire of various views available in PowerPoint 2016 ranges from some views that you use all the time to others that you may have never bothered to explore. The latter category probably includes Reading view. Reading view is similar to Slide Show view in some ways because, in both views, the slide is shown in full-screen mode. However, in Reading view, you also see the PowerPoint title bar and the Status Bar at the top and bottom of the interface respectively. Additionally, you can also view the Windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen.
Slide Master View

Slide Master view is an important view within PowerPoint 2016. Why? Because, if you make any changes or edits within this view, these modifications will influence all slides within your presentation. For example, if you want to make your company logo appear on all the slides, you will have to add the logo within the Slide Master -- or if you want the font size of your slide titles to be a little larger or smaller, then those edits also need to be made in the Slide Master.
