Did someone say that pictures show what words can tell? Yes, it is true that both pictures and words are important, and they both play complementary roles. If you had to choose just one of them; then seeing is a much more important part of presenting. Presentations, by their very nature, are meant to be seen since they evoke actions such as project, display, or broadcast; and all of these actions represent visual media. Text and speaking are important too, but you can be more effectively heard and remembered if your content includes both text and pictures.

Advanced Program Options

Advanced Program Options

The Advanced tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box contains advanced, and some not-so-advanced options related to the appearance and working of the PowerPoint interface. Changes to these options can result in a very different and more efficient workflow. The PowerPoint Options dialog box can be accessed in multiple ways, as explained in our Backstage View - Program Options in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows tutorial. In this tutorial, we will explore the various options within the Advanced tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box.


Add and Rename Ribbon Tabs

Add and Rename Ribbon Tabs

The Ribbon that you see within the PowerPoint interface was designed to solve a problem. Older versions of PowerPoint that were populated with menus and toolbars ended with so many submenus and toolbars that many users did not know if a specific feature even existed in PowerPoint. Even worse, the toolbars could occupy so much screen real estate that you would be left with a much smaller area for your slide! Enter the Ribbon which did help resolve some of these problems, but it came with a problem of its own: it did not provide customization options when first introduced in PowerPoint 2007. This was quickly rectified in PowerPoint 2010.


Quick Access Toolbar

Quick Access Toolbar

Although the entire concept behind the Ribbon interface in PowerPoint 2010 was to do away with menus and toolbars, one toolbar still exists, and this entirely customizable toolbar is called the Quick Access Toolbar, or the QAT for short. Even without any customization, this toolbar contains the Save, Undo, and Redo icons, but you can use it to store many more of your often used commands.
