TJ is the founder of Media Training Worldwide and has been conducting media training workshops and seminars since 1984. TJ agreed to answer some specific questions for Indezine subscribers! So here's an exclusive podcast from TJ that addresses you!

Designs in Sway

Design is an individual preference. Something that you love may not appeal to a friend, but that does not make that person less friendly! The reverse is also true, and that's why it's so cool that at least you can change the design of your Sways with one click. You get to keep your friends and designs -- this is a win-win situation!

Hyperlinking Text

Anything that you can select within a PowerPoint slide can serve as an anchor. While all slide objects can function as anchors, text does have some characteristics that make it work as a "visible" anchor. Unlike other anchors, hyperlinked text in PowerPoint is underlined automatically - and thus visible as an anchor. We will explore the different aspects of text anchors in PowerPoint 2013 within this tutorial.
Transparent Hyperlinks

Why would you add a hyperlink to any slide object within PowerPoint? There may be many answers to that question, but if we had to choose one answer that would be true all the time, it would be to add value to your slides and enhance their capabilities. However, these hyperlinks are two-edged swords because when you create a hyperlink, you may be telling your audience that it is a link!
Automatic Text Hyperlinks

Type or paste a web URL in your PowerPoint slide, and then press either the Enter or the Spacebar key. Presto, your web URL is now a live hyperlink. Now this automatic conversion to hyperlinks can be a mixed blessing. In some ways, it can be beneficial because most of the time, this automatic conversion may just be what you need! In other scenarios, you may get offended by PowerPoint's hand holding. Luckily, there are ways in which you can control this automatic conversion. You can turn off this automatic hyperlinking for a single link, and you can also toggle on and off this conversion altogether!
Editing Hyperlinks

Once you add a hyperlink to a slide object, you will want to edit the link, or remove it altogether. Both these tasks are easy to accomplish - and as usual, there's more than one way to do the same task in PowerPoint 2013.
