Manage and Remove Connected Services

Manage and Remove Connected Services

We already showed how you can add connected services in PowerPoint 2016. Although it may seem that you are adding these services to PowerPoint, you are essentially connecting them to all programs and platforms connected with your Microsoft account, including OneDrive, all of Office 2016, even your Windows operating system. Wherever used, these connected services help you access your settings and recent files or templates across all your devices, including laptops, tablets, and even smartphones. Additionally, some services allow you to access media and document files.



General Program Options

General Program Options

The General tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box contains basic, yet some very important 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 as explained in our Backstage View: Program Options in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows tutorial. In this tutorial, we will explore the various options within the General tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box.



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 as explained in our Backstage View: Program Options in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows tutorial.



Setting Spell Check Options

Setting Spell Check Options

Has it ever happened that you know that a particular word is misspelled, but PowerPoint's spell check doesn't seem to think so! That may be because your word may be in all CAPS, or it may contain some numbers. In these cases, and in several other instances, PowerPoint just ignores any misspellings. Fortunately, you can turn off the options that instruct PowerPoint to ignore these misspellings. Remember though that changing these options will apply to all Microsoft Office 2016 applications you have installed on your computer including Word, Excel, and Outlook.



Adding New Shape(s) to Existing SmartArt Graphics

Adding New Shape(s) to Existing SmartArt Graphics

Once you insert a SmartArt graphic within PowerPoint (or convert some bulleted text to SmartArt), you may want to add more shapes to your SmartArt graphic. Fortunately, you can make these additions and later edit them too. You can add more shapes to your existing SmartArt graphics either from within the SmartArt graphic itself or through the Text Pane. Note that adding a new shape to a SmartArt graphic entirely depends on the SmartArt variant that you are using; some variants offer more options than the others.
