AutoRecover and AutoSave Options

AutoRecover and AutoSave Options

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 crash may happen due to a power outage, instability of the system or even PowerPoint itself may crash due to a bug or glitch. You then realize that you had not saved the presentation for a long time and 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.

Add and Remove Proofing Dictionaries for Foreign Languages

Embed Fonts

Embed Fonts

Have you ever been in a situation where your presentation looked so awesome with some amazing typography, but when you opened the same presentation on another computer, the text looked positively terrible! This behavior may happen if the font you used is not available on the other computer. The best solution to this problem is to use safe fonts that are available on most computers, or you may also explore the option to embed fonts in your PowerPoint presentation.
