Learn how insert online pictures and videos with PowerPoint.
Desktop versions of PowerPoint let you choose where you want to save your files. They also prompt you to save your files if you close PowerPoint without saving your changes. Well, there is no such Save option within PowerPoint for iPad. Why? That's because most of the time, PowerPoint on the iPad will continuously auto-save your file as you make changes. It will also push these updated, saved versions to your cloud location. So essentially you open a file, make changes, and then open a second file. You may not be aware, but the first file is saved on its own when you open the second file! Would you like a more conventional approach where you are prompted to save your file? You can do that by turning off the AutoSave option that is enabled by default.
If someone wants a visual to express a bright idea, chances are they will use a picture of a light bulb!

OK - now one has to wonder -- does a bright idea concept even visualize as something other than a light bulb? On the other hand, does a light bulb represent anything other than a bright idea?

Bucket diagrams are so expressive, useful, and direct in the message they provide. Yes, these diagrams have everything to do with buckets and the water they contain. While the buckets themselves represent a source or destination, the water represents the financial liquidity. Buckets show items in a distribution, they represent the flow of things, or show collections of items. An empty bucket can indicate the capacity to which it can be filled. A bucket pouring water in another could represent distribution. You can have buckets that are full, empty, or somewhat full. And you can also pour the water from one bucket to another!
