The Presentation Lab: Conversation with Simon Morton

May 12, 2014

Simon MortonSimon Morton's career as an executive for a technology company exposed him to more PowerPoint than was good for him. In 2004 Simon founded Eyeful Presentations with two aims; ridding the world of 'Death by PowerPoint' and enjoying a relaxing, family future. Unfortunately for Simon (but great for businesses everywhere), his design and storytelling skills made a real impact. Ten years, two children, thousands of satisfied customers and six international offices later, it's going rather well (if not exactly to plan on the relaxation front). In this conversation, Simon discusses his new book, The Presentation Lab.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Creating Anchor Points for Connectors

May 12, 2014

Creating Anchor Points for Connectors in PowerPoint 2013

While PowerPoint 2013 lets you attach a connector to any slide object, these connectors can only be attached to wherever you see an anchor point on the slide object. Most of the time, the location of these anchor points may work well for you -- however, in certain scenarios, you may need an additional anchor point at a particular location. The good news is that you can add new anchor points for shapes and text boxes using the technique explained on this page. For text placeholders though, you cannot add new anchor points.

Learn how to create additional Anchor Points for connectors in PowerPoint 2013.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Text Effects for Chart Area

May 9, 2014

Text Effects for Chart Area in PowerPoint 2013PowerPoint provides you with various text fill and outline options for your chart text. Additionally, there are some text effects that can be applied to your chart text. The available Effects for chart text are very few -- this may be because the chart text has its roots in Excel. So effects such as 3-D Rotation thankfully cannot be added to chart text! More importantly, if you make all changes to your text appearance within the Chart Area element, this influences all the text within your chart at one go, as we explain in this tutorial.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Reroute Connectors

May 8, 2014

Reroute Connectors in PowerPoint 2013Many times when you draw connectors between shapes, the connector may use the shortest path to link between two shapes. This might mean that your connector overlaps other shapes, text boxes, or any other object that is positioned between the connected objects. You might have another reason to use a longer connector between two shapes as well. Whatever your reason may be, the good news is that you can easily reroute your connectors, either automatically or manually.

Learn how to reroute connectors automatically and manually within PowerPoint 2013.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Text Fill & Outline Options for Chart Area

Text Fill & Outline Options for Chart Area in PowerPoint 2013

Text used within a chart is not really formatted by default, and looks very simple. Note that the font style used is derived from the information available within the Theme or template used for the slides. Now you really should not change the text formatting within your chart unless you have a compelling reason to do so. Even though this default format looks consistent, at times you may want to change the text formatting.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Detach, Re-attach, and Delete Connectors

May 6, 2014

Detach, Re-attach, and Delete Connectors in PowerPoint 2013

When a connector is drawn to link two shapes together, it gets attached to a certain point on each of the shapes. On each shape, this point is one of those blue circle handles that appear when you are attaching the shape to a connector. Sometimes you may attach your connector to the wrong handle, and may need to detach it from that point, and attach it somewhere else. Or maybe you connected to the wrong shape altogether, and now want to detach the connector from one shape and attach it to another.

Learn how to detach, re-attach, and delete connectors in PowerPoint 2013.

Size & Properties Options for Chart Area in PowerPoint 2013

When you insert a chart, the position of the Chart Area on the slide depends upon the layout of the slide. If your slide layout is Blank, then the Chart Area is located at the center of the slide. If the chart is inserted within an existing placeholder on the slide, it occupies the entire placeholder. To reposition the Chart on the slide, you can either just select and drag it to the new position on the slide, or reposition it accurately as explained in this tutorial. This tutorial will also teach you to how to add alternative, supporting text to the chart to help people with visual disabilities.
