Once in a while, or quite frequently, you may discover a surprising new feature such as the Morph transition effect in PowerPoint. Maybe your colleague, George had the same Morph transition effect available months ago? And Cally, your friend is complaining because she has no Morph transition effect although she seems to be running the same version of PowerPoint! Is this normal? And if yes, why does this happen? The answers to all these questions can be found by understanding how Microsoft updates Office applications.

As a presentation designer, do you need to buy stock photos to use in your client presentations? But did you know that you may be breaking the rules, without being aware—even if you are paying to license the photos?

Locate PowerPoint

Locate PowerPoint

Are you unable to locate PowerPoint 2016 on your computer? Sometimes, such a question can be embarrassing! Or are there other versions of PowerPoint on your computer -- maybe older versions? Yes, we know that this can happen, although it does sound a little strange. However, there are perfectly valid excuses for you to be unable to locate PowerPoint, mainly in scenarios such as these.

Recovering New Unsaved Presentations Manually

Recovering New Unsaved Presentations Manually

Have you ever created a new presentation in PowerPoint and then closed it without saving it for even once? This scenario seems to be little strange and impossible since even if you accidentally close your presentation, PowerPoint prompts you whether you want to save your presentation. Yet, you can be in a similar scenario if you lose all your file changes to a system or PowerPoint crash. Fortunately, there are chances that your unsaved presentation is safe in some state! Most of the time, PowerPoint will salvage your file and offer to open it for you the next time you launch the program. Alternatively, even if you don't see any files being offered for recovery, you can set the process in action manually.

Recovering Unsaved Presentations

Recovering Unsaved Presentations

Imagine this situation: You started working on a presentation, saved it couple of times, then got so much involved in your work that you spent an inordinate amount of time working on it without saving it. Then, your computer unexpectedly crashes or just shuts off due to some unexpected crisis. Or maybe just PowerPoint crashes for some reason. Does it mean you are now left with your presentation in the status when you last saved it and lost all your work? Not really because you can restart PowerPoint, and one of two occurrences may happen.

Just like many other users of PowerPoint, you might have also faced this situation: you have been working on a presentation for hours and suddenly PowerPoint or even the computer crashes? This may happen due to a power outage, instability of the system, or even PowerPoint itself may crash. You realize that you had not saved the presentation for a long time and you may have lost most of your work! Although you can keep your programs updated, system secure, and even save your file often, there is no guarantee that you will never see a crash again and lose all or some of your work.

Properties of a Presentation

Properties of a Presentation

Presentation properties are the details about a presentation such as a title, author name, subject, and keywords that identify the document's topic or contents etc. It's important to specify relevant values for the presentation's Property attributes because they help to identify the presentation. Populating the fields for various Properties also helps you search for particular slides more efficiently later.
