You learned what Edit Points in PowerPoint are and how this option influences the look of shapes in PowerPoint. Even though the Edit Points option edits vertexes and give you control over how you want a shape to look, sometimes you might find it difficult to edit a certain segment in a shape because there are no points available to manipulate? Or there may be far too many points! PowerPoint provides a simple solution for this problem -- you can add and delete vertexes (points) from a shape.
The next option in our Insert Online Video in PowerPoint 2013 series is inserting video from a Video Embed Code. Here you can use embed code from any site and paste into Insert Video dialog box to insert the video clip into your slide. Technically, this option should work with YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and most other sites. In reality, this option seems to only work with YouTube! And with YouTube, you don't even need code since PowerPoint 2013 allows you to directly search and insert video clips from YouTube.
PowerPoint 2013 provides various sources which allow you to insert online video within your slide. We have already covered how to insert video from OneDrive. In this tutorial we'll cover how you can insert video from YouTube. Follow these steps to learn how to use the YouTube option to insert a video within PowerPoint 2013.
Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 11 enables you to edit photos and vector drawings. It allows you to perform text handling at a minute level. Photo & Graphic Designer is used by many illustrators and includes a set of really easy to use vector line and shape drawing and editing tools. Version 11 Premium is the newest one. When compared with Xara Designer Pro X v8 (or earlier), you'll find plenty of new features and content in Photo & Graphic Designer 11.
We start by looking at Dynamic TIME, a PowerPoint add-in that lets you do all sorts of fancy stuff with live clocks and countdown timers on your slides. We then bring you a synopsis of Patti Sanchez's amazing keynote session at the Presentation Summit. Jerry Weissman looks at Andreessen Horowitz's slides and finds a way to avoid the worst Death by PowerPoint! PowerPoint for iPad users can learn about running PowerPoint for the first time, and about saving files to iCloud Drive and other cloud locations. PowerPoint 2013 for Windows (and 2011 for Mac) users can learn about annotations, and PowerPoint 2007 users can explore the Edit Points option. Finally, don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
Our next option within the Insert Online Video series is inserting video from OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive). OneDrive is an online service which allows you to store files online – it also allows you to work on Microsoft Office web applications such as PowerPoint Online, where you can create and edit presentations. Remember that you will have to first sign in with your Microsoft account. Learn more in our Sign In to a OneDrive Account tutorial.
The Online Video option in PowerPoint 2013 has been greatly enhanced. This feature is very helpful as you are not limited to just the video available on your system. You can choose from a variety of other video sources. And all this happens within PowerPoint -- there's no need to open your web browser.
When you select an audio clip in PowerPoint 2013, you will see two extra contextual tabs on the Ribbon. One of these tabs is the Audio Tool Playback tab that provides options to configure properties that define how your inserted audio will play. Whether it will play automatically, or will it play audio across slides? Let's assume that you want your audio to play as a background score across multiple slides -- typically you would have to make four separate choices -- but PowerPoint 2013's new Audio Styles feature lets you automatically apply these four settings at once!
When you insert a shape within PowerPoint, you are not limited to what their default appearance looks like. You may want to change a rectangle to a rhombus, or even edit a curved or freeform line differently. The good news is that you can do this using the Edit Points option -- this almost makes PowerPoint a drawing program that provides you the option to play with vertexes (points), handles, etc. -- very similar to what you would do in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
Let's imagine that you want to show a clock on your slides -- or, do you want to show a countdown or even counters of seconds, minutes, hours, or even days? Or if your countdown gets to zero, you may want something to happen after that, such as moving to another slide? Of course, this is possible to achieve in PowerPoint. All you need is a thorough knowledge of programming, and even better -- a programmer sitting next to you all the time so that you don't have to worry about setting it all up! We found a better solution, and it does not need a full time programmer -- it only needs a one-time investment of a few dollars. And it's an add-in called Dynamic TIME that plugs right within PowerPoint.
While you can access your PowerPoint files saved on a cloud location such as iCloud Drive – or even from a saved Place such as OneDrive or Dropbox, there’s a little known option that also lets you access your PowerPoint files from other cloud services such as Box, Google Drive, etc. within PowerPoint for iPad.
Patti Sanchez is from Duarte, and works as Senior Vice President of Strategic Services. Her keynote on Wednesday morning at the Presentation Summit was on the topic of "Memos, Memes, and Movements." She began by saying that "the biggest changes have nothing to do with technology, but with people. Our attention is shrinking. And retaining attention is becoming a challenge since media and smartphones give us information in smaller and smaller bytes."
Unlike OneDrive and Dropbox which you add as a Place to access and save files in PowerPoint for iPad, Apple’s iCloud does not work the same way. To access and save files on your iCloud Drive, you will have to work a little differently as explained within this tutorial.
We first explain all the Office 365 subscriptions available. We then explore how a quick Gaussian Blur effect in Photoshop can make cool PowerPoint slide backgrounds. PowerPoint for iPad users can learn about installing PowerPoint, the Ribbon, and adding Places. PowerPoint 2013 users can learn about the Pen and Highlighter tools in Slide Show view. You can also learn about applying the Slide Master to individual slides, and changing the location of Slide Numbers. Finally, don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!
While presenting, annotation can play a large role in how you interact with your audience. In PowerPoint 2011, you can use the Pen tool that can change your static slide into a whiteboard upon which you can doodle and write! In this tutorial, we will learn how to use Pen tool in PowerPoint 2011 -- follow these steps to learn more.
Of all the many bad raps against PowerPoint—TMI (Too Much Information), MEGO (My Eyes Glaze Over), Data Dump, Show up and Throw Up, and "Just mail me the deck!"—the worst is The Laundry List, in which the slides in a presentation have all the continuity of a deck of cards shuffled by a Las Vegas dealer. We've all been there: "First, I'd like to talk about…then I'd like to talk about…then I'd like to talk about… then I'd like to talk about…and last, but not least…"
