PowerPoint Tutorials, Slides, Media, and Sections (Page 197)
Collection of PowerPoint tutorials on working with slides, sections, and more...
Sections can be useful not only while managing your presentation slides, but also for quickly reordering large blocks of adjacent slides. All you need to do is place all the required slides within a single Section, and then move the entire Section -- and all the slides within that Section will be moved to a new position at once. Follow these steps to learn more about reordering Sections in PowerPoint 2011.
Time is precious, and every second of every minute does count! And when it comes to presenting your slides in front of an audience, you have to make sure you don't exceed the amount of time allotted to you. How about showing the time right within your presentation slides? Like a countdown timer that shows as you progress your slides.
PowerPoint 2013's Format Painter option does an absolutely amazing job of copying all the formatting attributes from one slide object to another. For instance, you can copy all attributes of a shape (and even the text that the shape contains) to another shape, text box, or even a text placeholder. However, this is an all-or-nothing option. Sometimes, you may want to just copy the text formatting attributes, without copying the shape fill or any of the other shape attributes.
After designing your learning material and quizzes for an online course within Adobe Presenter, you would want to know how this online course will help the learners grasp the content better. Although, the LMS (Learning Management System) provides details about course completion and quiz results, it does not show the learners' progress. To overcome this issue, Adobe Presenter offers a Learning Analytics dashboard that empowers instructors with the ability to detect potential learning problems and to intervene early-improving the chances for learners to meet and even exceed their expectations.
PowerPoint does not provide any built-in tool for highlighting text -- but you can use Microsoft Word to help you with a workaround. Now imagine that you have hundreds of slides and you need to similarly highlight more text. Working repeatedly with Word for all text highlighting across so many slides can be painful. Fortunately, you can tackle this issue easily by using the Format Painter option within PowerPoint, which let you copy the highlighting for text and also helps in removing the highlight altogether.
First of all, PowerPoint 2013 or any of the previous versions do not support text highlighting. And before we explore getting over this limitation, let's ask ourselves why do we need to highlight a text? If you want to emphasize some important words within your slide, then the highlighting may indeed help. However, unlike Microsoft Word, PowerPoint doesn't have a ready-made tool to highlight text -- but you can use Word's highlighting options as a workaround!
Adobe Presenter provides an option to use Themes. These Themes enable you to customize how your presentations appear in the Presenter viewer. Themes let you add static images, colors, and sound to the presentation. A Theme can be added any time, you can select a pre-defined theme for your presentation, customize an existing theme or create a new one. Adobe Presenter provides you with many options for customizing colors, tabs, functionality, graphics, font style, and other design elements of a theme.
Molecules represent unity and diversity of life, and are often used to suggest reaction and regeneration! In this set, we bring you not one or two, but ten variations of these molecules. These molecule graphics can be used on their own, or also combined with other graphics such as a human head to create a larger concept or analogy!
Do you create many Custom Shows? Or have you never heard about it? Maybe you have heard about it, and have also used it -- but, want to learn more about this amazing PowerPoint feature? Either way, these tips will help you get more from your Custom Shows in PowerPoint 2013.
What if you are in a situation where you must give your presentation within a time constraint? Maybe you have been allowed precisely 15 or 10 minutes, and then you need to wrap up. How will you keep track of the time? One solution to this issue is to use the countdown timers in your presentation. This tutorial explains how you can add a countdown timer within your presentation in PowerPoint 2007 using a ready-to-use video file.
We bring you an amazing collection of Countdown Timers -- and then explore Adobe Presenter's Collaboration and Package options. We then then creating countdown slides with video clips in PowerPoint 2013 and 2010 -- we also explore removing Sections in PowerPoint 2010. And don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
The Comments option works well when you are collaborating on a presentation with someone else and you want to give and receive feedback without actually editing the slides themselves. In our commenting series of tutorials we already learnt how to Add, Edit, or Delete Comments within PowerPoint's desktop application -- we also explored Commenting within PowerPoint Online (OneDrive). In this tutorial we'll explain how to use commenting and at the same time collaborate between PowerPoint Online and PowerPoint 2013 (desktop application).
When you are working on a presentation with your client, or even a co-worker, you might end up in a situation where instead of working on the same copy, you both have worked on two different copies. Essentially, these copies contain changes done by both of you -- some similar and some different. Now you need to compare and merge these copies into a single, cohesive file without losing anything at all!
You have a 5 minute video or audio clip playing on your slide. And exactly after the clip has played for 30 seconds, you want some text to appear super-imposed above the video clip. It might seem difficult, but you can end up with these results quite easily using the Trigger Animation option. These Trigger animations typically happen as a result of a click on some other slide object -- but in PowerPoint 2013, you can now cause Trigger animations to also happen on media playback through a Bookmark.
Sections in PowerPoint not only help you easily manage your presentation slides, but there's so much more you can achieve using them. You can add and name Sections, move slides from one Section to another etc. And, at any point of time after creating a Section, you can also remove it -- or also remove a Section along with its content slides. You can also remove Sections altogether in a presentation.
Within Adobe Presenter, you can also enable analytics and collaboration options. When active, the analytic options provide info about how the eLearning course you have created is being used by learners. For example, you will be able to know how many learners have completed the course, what their level of completion is, and how their user engagement has been with each module. And within the collaboration option, learners will use a widget to ask questions in real-time and converse with the author and other peers. When you publish a module with the collaboration widget enabled, users can ask questions from within the module.
