Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Transparency for Shape Outlines

Jan 28, 2015

Transparency for Shape Outlines in 2011 for Mac

In PowerPoint you can set various attributes for shapes -- adjusting Transparency for Shape Fills is one of such tasks. Similar to the shape fills, shape outlines such as solid lines and gradient lines also have transparency attribute. This attribute lets you reduce the opacity of the outline (also known as the border or line), so that the slide object or background behind shows through partially. Transparency is calculated in percentages and you can change its value all the way from 0 to 100%.

Gradient Stops in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac

After adding gradient fills to shapes you may want to make some changes to the gradient fill. Or, you may want to change the colors comprising your gradient outlines. To do so, you must be familiar with gradient stops. A gradient stop is the point where a new color is introduced within the gradient blend. Unlike PowerPoint versions on Windows, PowerPoint 2011 for Mac does not really use the term "gradient stop" - in fact no term is used and probably, this version just refers to these stops as 'colors'. However, we will call them stops within this tutorial.

Ask Help, Read Books

Ask Help, Read Books

Learning is a process that never ends. You may be a charting expert, but there's always more to learn. Two of the best ways you can stay up to date is by reading books and participating in forums. Let's first look at books. Most charting books fall into two categories – about charting design and charting techniques. Books within the first category look at charting, so as to how a particular chart will help people understand a difficult concept. They also look at design principles and best practices.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Start or Restart Numbering for Lists

Start or Restart Numbering for Lists in PowerPoint 2013

Imagine that you have a long numbered list that forms the content within your PowerPoint slide. Now, it is not uncommon for slides to have numbered lists that comprise twenty lines, and that is singularly unfortunate because even if members of your audience have perfect eyesight, they won't be able to read the teeny-weeny sized text! And let us face the fact that too much text is downright boring, and nowadays any sort of bulleted or numbered lists seem to signify a poorly designed slide. One approach you can take to combat this problem is by dividing your list across multiple slides -- but even then PowerPoint may default to numbering your lists at 1 on each slide -- even when you want it to start at 6, 11, or 16! Luckily, that is an easier problem to resolve, as explained in this tutorial.

Learn how to start or restart the numbering for numbered list in PowerPoint 2013.
