Why do I need Office 365 to run Office Mobile?OK – you are used to installing apps on your iPhones and iPads – first download, and then run the app. You may have to pay for the app – and most of the time, your money gets into the pockets of Apple’s App Store even before you actually download the app. However, things are a little different with the Office Mobile app that lets you run Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on an iPhone – you will soon realize that although the actual app was free to download, you will need to pay for an Office 365 subscription to run the program.

When is Smiling Appropriate to the Audience?

July 3, 2013

Claudyne Wilder"Did you know that in social encounters women smile 87 percent of the time versus 67 percent for men, and that women are 26 percent more likely to return smiles from the opposite sex?" These are just a few statistics from The Definitive Book of Body Language by Allan and Barbara Pease (who also wrote Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps). The authors go on to provide even more statistics on the importance of smiling -- and not smiling. "The lessons here," they conclude, "are for women to smile less when dealing with dominant men in business or to mirror the amount of smiling that men do. And if men want to be more persuasive with women, they need to smile more in all contexts."

PowerPoint and Presenting News: July 2, 2013

July 2, 2013

Geetesh Bajaj In this issue, we first look at Google's fantastic reverse image search, and how indispensable this option can be when you want to be sure about the copyright status of any pictures you use in your slides. We continue our series about PowerPoint (Office) Mobile on iOS devices. Right now, everyone seems to think that Microsoft's Office offering for iOS is too little and too late -- and the fact is that you cannot install it on more than half of the iOS devices and even then it's an expensive app although the actual download is free! Sounds confusing and contradicting? Yes -- it is -- our coverage will make you understand these complex topics in plain English. In our tutorial series, PowerPoint for Windows users can learn about views. We cover Notes Page, Reading, and Handout Master views. PowerPoint 2011 for Mac users will explore more about Slide Masters. And finally, do look at discussions and templates of this week!

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Notes Master View

July 2, 2013

Notes Master View in PowerPoint 2013

Each slide in your PowerPoint deck can have some notes associated with it -- and these are placed in the Notes pane area. Do you want to print all these slide notes? Yes, you can -- however very few people realize that you can print these notes in the form of a properly structured Notes Page. This might be among the least used PowerPoint options -- but this certainly is among the most useful ones! Incidentally, even the small number of people who print Notes pages never realize that the look of their printed Notes pages can be modified within the Notes Master. Any changes you make within the Notes Master view affects the look within Notes Page view, and the layout of printed Notes pages.

You can see which slide number an active slide is within both Normal and Slide Sorter views. However, the same requirement becomes a challenge during Slide Show view, especially if you also want your audience to be able to see the slide numbers. To do so, you must enable slide numbers on the slides -- here are the steps required to do so in PowerPoint 2011.

Google's Image Source Search

June 29, 2013

Google's Image Source Search

Do you have a picture somewhere that's been with you for years -- and you have the perfect opportunity to use it in next week's big presentation? And then you just realize that you have no clue about where this picture came from? Did you buy it from a stock photo site, was it a free picture from some other site, is it even part of any Creative Commons license that allows you to use it legally? Or worse -- did you just get this from Google's Images Search? We know -- this is a very strange scenario to be in -- you don't know if that picture can be used without breaking some law -- and the last thing you want to do is start searching for an alternative picture that can be legally used. The solution to this problem is actually quite simpler than it sounds -- just use Google's image source search!

Handouts are documents you can print from within PowerPoint that include slide representations from your presentation -- you can opt to include as many as 9 slides on each Handout page. Of course with 9 slides on a page, your slides will look more like thumbnails. You can also choose to print just one slide on every handout page -- then your Handout pages will look like individual slides printed on a page.

But as you explored in our Install Office Mobile on an iPhone (or iOS Device) tutorial, you paid nothing on the Apple App Store to download and install Office for Mobile -- so does that make it a free app?

PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Changing Location of Slide Numbers

When you insert Slide Numbers on your slides, you may discover that the location of the Slide Number changes depending upon the active Theme of your presentation. Some Themes (or templates) may display the Slide Number at the bottom right -- with other Themes, it may be located at the top right, or even the bottom center. As you can observe, the location of the Slide Number may seem to be influenced by the Theme or template -- and that's almost true. However it's only the Slide Master within your Theme or template that's influences the position of your Slide Numbers.

Learn how to change the location of slide numbers in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
