PowerPoint Tutorials on drawing Hyperbola and Curved shapes, inserting new slides and PowerPoint Conversations (Page 170)
Collection of PowerPoint tutorials on drawing Hyperbola and Curved shapes, inserting new slides and PowerPoint Conversations.
There are a number of ways to create a table in PowerPoint -- from inserting them with a specified number of rows and columns, to something as intuitive as drawing your own table. Most of the tables you create using either of these two methods will show borders between individual cells. These borders make the segregation between cells obvious. Yet, at times you may not want to see the border altogether -- probably for design reasons.
Public Domain pictures, or anything within the public domain is content that you can freely use, and as the words indicate they belong to all mankind. But that's just the simple, plain English description. There are certainly some other nuances of Public Domain content that you must be aware of, and it is also a great idea to attribute any Public Domain content you use.
There is this video clip that Bruce Gabrielle posted on his blog, which shows how you can create a triangular table in PowerPoint by either creating a picture of the table itself (which makes the table non-editable) or by creating a picture of the table with just empty cells so that you can place a transparent table with figures or words over it. While both techniques are amazing, we wanted to use a process whereby not only is the table editable, but the ending shape need not be limited to just a triangle.
Being on vacation does mean that I can get you some content that we have revamped recently due to changes made at Microsoft. Some of the most popular pages we have had to update involve getting a cheaper copy of PowerPoint and explaining the Office 365 concept in plain English. PowerPoint 2013 users can learn this about adding and hiding chart series and categories. Then we exploring inserting new slides, drawing trees, and creating curved shapes. We also show how you can use RGB color values within PowerPoint and explore text alignment in table cells.
You can manually draw tables and then divide your tables into numerous rows, columns, and cells as we have already explored in our Draw Tables in PowerPoint 2013 tutorial. Similarly, PowerPoint allows you to erase segregations (borders) between cells and thus merge cells. Follow these steps to learn more.
PowerPoint is a ubiquitous presentation program that also works great as a simple drawing program. We have already done an extensive series of tutorials on shapes, and in this tutorial you will learn how to use simple techniques already explained in other tutorials to draw a shopping bag in PowerPoint 2013. No, you need not go back to those older tutorials since most concepts are drop-dead easy – yet if you want to know more, we have linked to all technique tutorials in the relevant parts of this page. So let’s start creating our shopping bag!
As far as the content or even appearance is concerned, an individual cell within a Table in PowerPoint acts just like any other text box. Therefore, various text alignment options used for text boxes work with Table cells too apart for a few exceptions. Once a cell is selected, the Text alignment options for that cell can be found within the Table Tools Layout contextual tab of the Ribbon -- you can find them contained within the Alignment group.
Although most people think of PowerPoint as a slide program, it's also a great drawing program that can in many ways be more easier to use than full-fledged illustration programs. Agreed, PowerPoint is not that full featured as far as drawing goes, but sometimes quick and easy is all you need! In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a tree with just two simple shapes in PowerPoint 2013.
In PowerPoint, the entire chart data that shows up in the form of series and categories is actually stored within an Excel sheet. These series and categories may show up on your chart in different ways depending upon the chart type. Almost any chart type, even if it is not a column chart, compares one set of values with another. Once you delete any of these values, they no longer show on your chart -- so the level of comparison reduces. However deleting is not always the best option, especially if you want to retrieve those values later whenever required. The solution is to temporarily hide values you no longer need, and then unhide them as and when you want to expose those values.
We already explored what Color Models are, and we then looked at the RGB color model that uses three primary colors: Red, Green, and Blue to mix and create almost 16 million colors. All RGB colors have values for all the three option: R, G, and B. Assuming someone has provided you with an RGB value, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed?
Nancy Duarte speaks to Indezine in an exclusive feature about her new Persuasive Presentations online course. We discuss RGB as part of our new series on Color Models. In a version independent tutorial, learn how you can create a column chart that spans the columns across a single picture! And Claudyne Wilder interviews Thomas Hayes on how we all can refocus our nerves while presenting. PowerPoint 2013 users can learn this week about inserting videos, and also about the missing option to insert video clips from the Clip Art task pane. We also look at Chart plot areas, and editing the data on which your chart is based. And then we teach you how to draw parabolas and hyperbolas.
PowerPoint provides an extensive array of built-in shapes which help you create great looking graphics for your slides. You can manipulate these graphics by dragging their yellow squares or combining them -- but at times, you may not achieve the exact appearance you want. For instance, you might want a little curve in your shape edges rather than conventional straight lines. PowerPoint does allow you to tweak and make your shape look more organic than geometric curved lines.
When you add a new chart in PowerPoint 2013, you will see that it has its roots in Excel -- all the chart data is also stored within an Excel sheet. When you edit chart data within Excel, the process may not be limited just to changing the values. You many also need to add a new Series or Category. If we use a column chart as an example, Series within your Excel sheet show up as the columns. Categories on the other hand are essentially a set of series.
Like many other tasks you do in PowerPoint, inserting a new slide can be done in multiple ways. You just need to find a way that works best for you -- the following steps show you how you can do this simple task in PowerPoint 2013.
Color in electronic devices is made up from light, as already discussed in our Color Models article. The three primary colors of this electronic color model are red, blue, and green -- thus this model is called the RGB color model. RGB is essentially an abbreviation for Red Green Blue.
A Hyperbola is essentially composed of a smooth curve that is not too different from a parabola, but this smooth curve also has a mirrored image of itself so that the finished shape looks like two infinite bows. In thus tutorial we'll show you how you can draw a hyperbola using the drawing tools available in PowerPoint 2013.
Unlike in PowerPoint 2010, there is no direct option to insert video clips from online sources such as Microsoft’s clip art collection in PowerPoint 2013! What’s more, Microsoft has removed its online clip art collection from its Office Online web site – so there’s no way you can get those video clips from within a web browser and insert them in PowerPoint 2013 easily.
