Working with the Ribbon in PowerPoint 2011 is intuitive to a very large extent -- and it certainly involves a little more than just learning to minimize and maximize the Ribbon tabs. In fact, you can customize to the extent of hiding the entire Ribbon altogether -- or changing the Ribbon tab color from orange and a more muted gray. You can also show or hide group headings within individual tabs etc.
In this issue, we first look at three fonts that can add a cool, handmade look to your slides! We then bring you two more sets of map pins -- you can now get over 300 map pins in one combo offer.

There are many dedicated programs that only do flowcharts, and even Microsoft creates another program called Visio that’s more flowchart savvy than mainstream Microsoft Office programs – even then, we highly recommend that you create your flowcharts within your Office program such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint! Why do we put forth such a recommendation? That’s because Microsoft Office programs already have all the abilities and options you need to create almost any type of flowchart you need.
Do your animations appear a little jerky in PowerPoint 2010 or 2013 compared to how they played in PowerPoint 2007? There could be any number of reasons why the animations may not play smoothly -- you may have too many applications using resources in the background or your graphics system may not be able to cope up. However, when the same animations play well on PowerPoint 2007 -- and do not on 2010 and 2013 (sometimes, even on the same computer) -- then this easy trick may help!
The Ribbon made its debut in Office 2011 versions of PowerPoint, and other programs such as Word and Excel -- as such, it is a new interface component that replaces the Elements Gallery in Office 2008 for Mac.

The problem with handwritten fonts is that most of them are not too readable, especially when you use a smaller text size. We searched through all web resources to find these 3 free, handwritten fonts -- enjoy using these fonts in your slides or anywhere else -- do remember though that some of these fonts will not travel with your slides -- so use only if you are presenting your slides on the same computer where these fonts were installed.
Slides are virtual – and that makes them great candidates to add all sorts of virtual stuff that looks “real”! Just like these hand crafted “map pin” graphics – these map pins are easy to use. This complete collection that you will find in the downloaded ZIP file contains more than 300 map pins – not only the 10 that are shown on this page. The map pin graphics are already placed in PowerPoint slides you will download – just copy the individual pin you want, and then paste the pin within your own slides that already contain a map. Beyond maps, you can also use these map pins like regular push pins so that a picture, shape, or anything else appears as if it has been pushed onto a surface, board, or wall with a pin!
A flowchart is a diagram that explains a process visually and sequentially in a series of steps -- each such step is represented visually by a flowchart symbol. Common flowchart symbols look no different than your regular oval, diamond, or rectangle shapes. Each of these shapes can be connected to another with lines that have arrows on one end indicating the direction of a flowchart process.

Programs such as PowerPoint are a very significant part of our workflows not just because of their vast abilities but also because they can understand content from so many file formats. These include file types that PowerPoint can save and open -- we already explored file types that PowerPoint 2013 can save to -- but when you go and look at the file types that PowerPoint 2013 can open, you'll find that the list of file types is not exactly the same - there are several omissions and additions compared to that list. When you access the Open dialog in PowerPoint 2013, you can choose the file type you want to open.
