Transparent Pattern Fills in PowerPoint

Transparent Pattern Fills in PowerPoint

Did you know that PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions provided an option to create pattern fills for shapes that had transparency? For example, you could end up with horizontal lines that were 50% transparent, 20% transparent, or transparent with any percentage value. We show you a solution that helps you get back these transparency options in newer versions of PowerPoint.

He began his professional life with a degree in Political Science. Armed with that, and little else, he’s spent his career as a photographer and multi-image slide show producer; doing computer graphics and service bureau work; and for the last ten years writing add-ins for PowerPoint. From developing film to developing software. Some day, perhaps, he’ll find a use for the degree.

Creating PowerPoint Outline in Word

An outline encompasses the text content within your presentation slides. In some ways, this text is the story of your presentation. In a less poetic description, you may just describe the outline as the sequential structure of text content that you use in a presentation. Whatever description you prefer, the outline does form an ideal starting point for a bunch of slides! PowerPoint can import outlines created in many applications such as Word 2016, Word 2013, Word 2011, and Word 2007.

Rename Files in PowerPoint Online and OneDrive

Rename Files in PowerPoint Online and OneDrive

Unlike PowerPoint programs that run on your computer devices, PowerPoint Online provides you with an option to rename an open presentation. When you create a new presentation, PowerPoint Online uses a default name such as Presentation 1, Presentation 2, etc. This mimics the desktop experience. But did you know that you can provide a new name to the presentation while you are editing? Additionally, you can also rename within OneDrive, and this is similar to renaming your files in Windows Explorer. We look at both approaches in this tutorial.

Share PowerPoint Presentations on Social Sites (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn) using OneDrive

Microsoft has some amazing options for sharing Office documents online. We have explored sharing PowerPoint presentations using the Microsoft Office Web Viewer and OneDrive. There is a third option also on OneDrive that lets you share presentations on social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. You share these presentations via a link with your friends, colleagues, and family.
