Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

December 14, 2015

Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Your slides remain the same, yet the various views in PowerPoint make exploring those same slides a little different. This approach makes sense because viewing slides in Slide Show view gives an entirely different perspective than editing them in Normal view. Further, it's easier to reorder and work with multiple slides in Slide Sorter view -- and make changes to individual slides in Normal view. All put together, PowerPoint 2016 provides you with ten different views.

Learn about various views that allow you to edit and show slides in PowerPoint 2016.

Adding More Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

December 8, 2015

Adding More Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you have made Guides visible on your PowerPoint slides, they show up in the same position on all other slides within the presentation. You'll find that only two Guides -- one horizontal and one vertical Guide are visible at first, and these two Guides intersect at the center of the slide. Most of the time, this might work for you, but you can actually add more Guides since these can help in positioning slide objects better across successive slides.

Learn how to add more Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.


Working with Guides in PowerPoint 2016

December 7, 2015

Working with Guides in PowerPoint 2016

Let's start with the basics -- what are Guides? Consider Guides as a Grid on your slide that you create -- each single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on -- once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you.

Learn how to work with Guides in PowerPoint 2016.

December 4, 2015

Office 365 or Office 2016?

By now, most of us who are not living under a rock have heard about Office 365. But we have also heard about Microsoft Office versions for the desktop, such as the ones for Windows and Mac. Are the desktop versions the same as Office 365? And even if the answer is yes or no, does it matter because many people can't even understand all these new terms that Microsoft is talking about.

Explore the differences and similarities between Microsoft Office 365 and desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

Working with Snap to Grid in PowerPoint 2016

Making gridlines visible on your slides in PowerPoint 2016 is only a good idea if you use the Grid feature to attain some results. If you are serious about using Grids to position slide objects with more precision, you must first visit the options available for changing Grid settings. Once you have played around with the grid settings, you are better equipped and prepared to explore how the Snap to Grid feature can help you accurately position and move slide objects such as pictures, shapes, or anything else you can select and move on a slide!

Learn how the Snap to Grid option works in PowerPoint 2016.


What is the Outline?

December 3, 2015

What is the Outline?

An outline within a PowerPoint presentation is all the text content of the presentation that's inserted within any of the text placeholders. Although visuals, multimedia, and other slide objects can play an important role within a presentation, a proper outline is still the main skeleton on which the body of a presentation can be sustained. Without a cohesive outline, everything else is akin to a movie that has the best photography, great music, talented cast but no story to put it all together. So how do you create a structured outline -- and does PowerPoint provide sufficiently robust outlining tools?

Learn how you can use the outline to create a better presentation in any version of PowerPoint.

Snap to Grid Settings in PowerPoint 2016

Once you make Gridlines visible on your slide in PowerPoint 2016, you may wonder if there's any benefit using the Gridlines other than the obvious benefit of possessing a visual grid that lets you place slide objects? The answer can be both Yes and No. Yes because you may believe that is all that happens on the surface. Moreover, no because unless you explore how the Snap to Grid option works, you will not realize the real benefit. Worse, this incredible option is not active by default!
