Slide Layouts within Slide Master View

While changing the Slide Layout of any given slide(s) in PowerPoint 2016, you typically access the Home tab of the Ribbon and click the Layout button. This brings forth the Layout drop-down gallery. The number of Slide Layouts that you see within this gallery may differ depending upon the Theme of your active presentation -- but with PowerPoint's default Office Theme applied, you may see 9 layouts.

Create a Hyperlink to a New Email Message

We have learned about gazillion ways to work with hyperlinks in PowerPoint 2013 - but why would anyone want to create a new email with a hyperlink in PowerPoint? First of all, it is quite acceptable that you do not wish to create an email via a hyperlink. However, you sure must be curious about why this feature exists? This works best in presentations that are sent to others via email, or via a download. Once the recipients view your slides, you might want some feedback from them. And that's precisely why you can add an email hyperlink on your slides (typically your last slide) so that recipients of your presentation can click a link to open a new email!
Adding Iconography to Action Buttons

You know that Action Buttons are helpful because they at least look like buttons! But choices are limited to what PowerPoint provides - and let's face it, choices for Action Buttons have remained unchanged since the last 20 years. What has changed in those 20 years? There was no Facebook, almost no social media, and the internet was in its infancy. Given this scenario, it is no surprise that the Action Buttons are limited to VCR style buttons - those were probably in vogue 20 years ago! Now times have changed, and fortunately you can tweak Action Buttons to create your own variants, as we will show you in this tutorial.

Adding Authors in Sway

Once you create a Sway, you can share it with others who can view your Sway. However, did you know that you can also share your Sway with others and also allow them to edit your Sway! Imagine that you could create a Sway that you share with several others and provide them with edit access. They could then add more content such as text, pictures, or anything else. This approach makes Sway a very powerful media sharing and editing platform. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can share and invite others to edit your Sway.

Co-Authoring in Sway

Once you have added an Author to an existing Sway, you will find that more than one Author can work on the same Sway, even if they are editing at the same time! In this tutorial, we will explore how this Co-Authoring option works.
