PowerPoint Tutorials: Working with Charts (Page 189)
Collection of PowerPoint tutorials on working with Charts, followed by PowerPoint conversations.
We begin with an interview with Germán Viera about why he creates so many pre-designed slides that you can use – and then we have a full review on iSpring’s Presenter 7 add-in for PowerPoint. And then as part of our mind graphics series, do try using our Crossword and Maze graphics in your slides! PowerPoint 2013 users can learn about charts and text. And don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
This tutorial is about moving text boxes rather than text placeholders. Typically text placeholders for regular text content or even slide titles are located in the same position on successive slides -- so if you really do need to move a text placeholder, do it within the Slide Master so that this change of position happens on all slides, providing a consistent look to your presentation. This will also prevent you from repeatedly moving the placeholders on each and every slide on your presentation.
Here is a collection of ready to use Hanukkah clip-art graphics for PowerPoint that you can use within your presentation slides. These editable clip-art graphics are perfect for the festive season. These graphics are available in both black and white and are contained within two separate sample presentations you can download. Just copy the clip art graphic you like and paste into another PowerPoint slide, or even a Word document or Excel worksheet.
PowerPoint includes proofing tools (spelling dictionaries, thesauri, and grammar rules) for more than one language. If you use English as your main language, then Spanish and French dictionaries may be already installed -- this enables you to spell check Spanish and French words. Want to know which languages are available for proofing for your version of PowerPoint?
In PowerPoint there are some differences between text placeholders and text boxes. As far as formatting for text placeholders and text boxes is concerned, almost everything else does work in the same way. However, there is one more vital difference between a text placeholder and a text box – and that’s related to how you insert them.
Crosswords can indulge your mind, and minds of others. That's because they represent more than some words to discover – they symbolize potential, thought processes, intelligence, perspective, etc. In this collection, we provide 10 crossword graphics. These crossword graphics can be used on their own, or also combined with other graphics such as a human head to create a larger concept!
Germán Viera is an entrepreneur with a background in Software Engineering and Business Administration. He has been involved with Microsoft Office products as a developer. As a professional user building PowerPoint presentations for project management, marketing and sales, he found himself several times facing the need of professional PowerPoint templates and decided to join SlideModel as part of a solution to this pain. As Director and Lead of Customer Support, he divides responsibility into defining new content and generating an engaging customer experience through the platform and support.
The chart templates you save within PowerPoint 2013 are saved into a default folder location which you do not have to worry about, as far as you are using those templates on same computer where they are saved. However, if you need to share these CRTX chart templates with other users, or if you received a CRTX chart template from someone else, then you need to make sure that these CRTX files are placed in the default location where PowerPoint 2013 looks for them.
You can tweak your chart in PowerPoint as much as you want so that the resulting chart follows your specifications. Once you met a standard that you may want to replicate often, PowerPoint 2013 makes it easy to save the chart you create as a template. Saving a chart as a template saves all the tweaks you made -- and you can use the template as a starting point when you insert another chart.
Mazes are more than just mazes! That's because they represent so much more – from hidden treasures to getting lost, and from discovering something to complications – a maze can symbolize all this and more! In this collection, we provide 10 mazes – (4 circles, 3 squares, and 3 semicircles). These mazes can be used on their own, or also combined with other graphics such as a human head to create a larger concept!
This week we bring you the amazing Organic Shapes collection. Plus explore our new Female and Male Heads silhouette graphics. We also explore the interface of the new Haiku Deck option within SlideShare, that lets you create slides. We also have a bunch of tutorials on creating charts in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. And don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
Even though charts are a visual medium, they still contain plenty of text in the form of data labels, titles, legend, axis labels, etc. Whenever you insert a new chart (or any other slide element), the default colors and fonts used are based on the active Theme of the presentation. In this tutorial you are going to learn how you can change the font and use other text options for charts in PowerPoint 2013.
iSpring Presenter 7 is a PowerPoint add-in which enables you to create media-rich courses and presentations with quizzes in HTML5 and Flash. This add-in helps you create course content within PowerPoint, enhance it with video narrations, create branching scenarios and quizzes, thereafter publish it to mobile-ready formats, e-learning platforms, and as distributable standalones.
Unlike conventional 2D charts, 3D charts have distinct walls and a floor. Also, by default, these walls and floor show no fill and not even a border. The lines you see within the walls are Gridlines, and not borders. If your slide background is a solid color, these defaults could work best for you -- however you may want to play a bit with changing the fill or line attributes for the wall and floor elements. Do remember though that you should leave these elements in their default state unless you have a compelling reason to change them!
Have you tried drawing a line or a circle with just holding a pencil or marker in your hand? If you do, you’ll end up with a shape that may not comply with the absolute geometrical standards but it still looks human, different, and sometimes a good substitute for a regular shape -- just like these organic shapes. Each of these 8 shape types has 10 variants – so you end up with 80 hand-drawn shape options! Again each of these 80 shapes have 12 brush stroke styles! Plus you get the lines and arrows in 12 brush stroke styles too. Combine all variations to end up with more than 3000 possibilities.
In a 3D chart, when there are columns of various heights, it's possible that some of the taller columns hide other shorter columns placed behind them. This is especially true with 3D charts that have a Z axis. One of the ways to make the columns placed behind visible is to make the taller columns transparent. The other way to solve this issue is to rotate the 3D chart a little so that you end up with a better view where the shorter columns become clearly visible.
