PowerPoint at 25: Conversation with Robert Gaskins

Aug 13, 2012

Robert GaskinsRobert Gaskins invented PowerPoint, drawing on ten years of interdisciplinary graduate study at Berkeley and five years as manager of computer science research for an international telecommunications R&D laboratory in Silicon Valley. Gaskins managed the design and development of PowerPoint as a startup where it attracted the first venture capital investment ever made by Apple Computer. It was released for Macintosh in April 1987; soon after, it became the first significant acquisition ever made by Microsoft, who set up a new business unit in Silicon Valley to develop it further. Gaskins headed this new Microsoft group for another five years, completing versions of the PowerPoint product through the explosive initial growth of Microsoft Windows and the creation of the Microsoft Office bundle. In this conversation, Robert discusses how PowerPoint evolved, and how it was named.

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Character Spacing

Aug 13, 2012

Character Spacing PowerPoint 2010Increase or decrease the font size of text in your slides, and you'll discover that not only does this make a difference in the aesthetics of your slide, but the text itself uses more or less space than you may want. Sometimes, you may want they text to take just a wee bit lesser space so that all content can fit within two lines rather than three. If you would like to alter the spacing between text characters, you can do so by using PowerPoint 2010's Character Spacing option, that affects the appearance and readability of both title and body text. Character Spacing is the amount of space in-between individual letters. You can easily adjust this spacing for a cleaner look or to make more or less text fit within any text object. Let us now explore how you can choose different Character Spacing options for the selected text on your slide.

What Do You Add To The Talk?: by Claudyne Wilder

Aug 10, 2012

Claudyne WilderIt is the day of your talk. You're ready. You stand up and reel off all the statistics on the slides you so carefully created. As you point out the numbers, you begin to feel uneasy. You don't know what's wrong, but your audience seems a bit detached. What's the problem? You're telling them the information on the slides -- what more could they want? What they want is something that is not on the slide. Because they see the information faster than you can read it, they need some extras. Otherwise, why listen to you? Remember, do not read every word and number on each slide. Highlight and discuss the key points using the PowerPoint features at your disposal (shapes, callouts, colors behind the numbers, animations). What else should you tell your audience?

Aug 7, 2012

Geetesh BajajPowerPoint 2013 is our topic of discussion again this week -- and there's so much information to share with you that we created a separate section below on all PowerPoint 2013 related topics. At this point of time, we are helping you install the Customer Preview version of Office 2013 -- this includes PowerPoint 2013 and corresponding versions of other Office programs such as Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, etc. The installation itself is one big new feature for this version of Office -- in fact, most users need not download an installation file since the install actually streams off Microsoft's servers in a way that you would expect a YouTube movie or something from Netflix to play!

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Format Font Styles

Aug 7, 2012

Format Font Styles

The appearance of text makes a huge difference to any presentation. The font typeface used in your slides is dictated by the active Theme or Theme Fonts set of your presentation -- you can certainly override these defaults and choose another font typeface and also change the font size. However, there are times when you need to highlight a word or a phrase contained within your text so that it stands apart and commands attention. To do so, you can apply font styling options that let you make your text bold, italics, underlined, etc. Often, slide titles in PowerPoint are formatted bold to attract attention; italicized text is mainly used to add emphasis or to mark foreign words. And you can underline text, add shadows, and even strike through any selected text. Read more to learn more about these font styles.
