July 16, 2014

Setting a Recording Audio Device in Windows 8 or 7There are many applications, including PowerPoint that allow you to record your voice using a connected microphone. Such recorded voice-overs work amazingly well as slide narrations. However, if your connected microphone does not work using the recording options in PowerPoint or another application, then you may have to first find if the microphone hardware was detected or not by your Windows operating system. Also if detected, has it been selected as the default recording device? In this tutorial, we will discover how you can take care of these concerns in both Windows 8 or Windows 7.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Motion Path Animations

July 14, 2014

Motion Path Animations in PowerPoint 2013 for WindowsThe three basic animation types in PowerPoint: Entrance, Emphasis, and Exit animations are something we have already explored. The fourth animation type is called Motion Path animation, and this is something more advanced in nature than the basic animation types explored so far. Motion Path animation determines the route (path) and the direction in which the animated slide object moves across or around on the slide. For example, you can move the slide object up, down, right, or left -- and even on a preset or a created motion path.

Format Cells as Text in Excel 2013

July 14, 2014

Format Cells as Text in Excel 2013

In Excel, the cell type for most of the stuff you type is set to General by default. What does this General mean? This means that the content within the cell is generic and has not been identified as a number, some text, or a date. Depending upon what you are doing with the Excel sheet, it may really not matter if Excel just treats the cell content as General. However, your Excel content may be used to create a chart in PowerPoint, and the chart data may contain some labels that are all digits with no alphabets.

Learn how to change the cell type to Text in Excel 2013.


Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Exit Animations

July 11, 2014

Exit Animations in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Exit Effects determine how the animated slide object leaves the slide area. For example, the slide object can fade or fly out the screen area, or use any of the many other Exit Effects available within PowerPoint. Typical Exit Effect animations are Disappear, in which an object just vanishes or Float Down, in which a slide object mimics the setting sun. You can also apply Exit Effects to text objects so that words Spiral out of the slide. There are plenty of Exit Effect animations that PowerPoint provides -- however, make sure you use animation sparingly to emphasize rather than to distract.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Vary Colors by Point Option for Charts

July 11, 2014

Vary Colors by Point Option for Charts in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

When a Column chart in PowerPoint contains only one Data Series and several Categories, then, by default the individual chart columns may use the same fill color. If your chart uses the same colored series in all of the categories, it can make your chart look dull (see Figure 2 later on this page) -- it also does not provide a proper way for your audience to compare elements within the individual series.

Learn how to show different categories in different colors within a chart.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Emphasis Animations

July 10, 2014

Emphasis Animations in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Emphasis Effect animations determine how the slide object calls attention to itself while it is on-the-slide. Entrance and Exit effect animations allow a slide object to enter or exit the slide area, whereas slide objects with Emphasis Effect animations are already there on the slide area before they start animating, and will be there even after they have finished animating. Typical Emphasis Effects are Spin and Grow/Shrink. You can also apply Emphasis Effect animations to text objects so that the fonts or the text colors change.

Explore Emphasis animations in PowerPoint 2013.

 Changing Color for Negative Data Series within Charts in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

In PowerPoint charts, when you choose to invert the fill for any negative option in a series of a chart, you end up seeing those negative series in the default white color. This is not a great option if your slide background is white or if you want negative series to show in red. In this tutorial, let us explore how to get over this limitation in PowerPoint 2013 using a workaround.

Learn how to change the default white color for negative values within charts in PowerPoint 2013.
