Designs in Sway

Design is an individual preference. Something that you love may not appeal to a friend, but that does not make that person less friendly! The reverse is also true, and that’s why it's so cool that at least you can change the design of your Sways with one click. You get to keep your friends and designs -- this is a win-win situation!

Learn how you can use the Design options in Sway.

Automatic Text Hyperlinks in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Type or paste a web URL in your PowerPoint slide, and then press either the Enter or the Spacebar key. Presto, your web URL is now a live hyperlink. Now this automatic conversion to hyperlinks can be a mixed blessing. In some ways, it can be beneficial because most of the time, this automatic conversion may just be what you need! In other scenarios, you may get offended by PowerPoint’s hand holding. Luckily, there are ways in which you can control this automatic conversion. You can turn off this automatic hyperlinking for a single link, and you can also toggle on and off this conversion altogether!

Transparent Hyperlinks in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Why would you add a hyperlink to any slide object within PowerPoint? There may be many answers to that question, but if we had to choose one answer that would be true all the time, it would be to add value to your slides and enhance their capabilities.

Hyperlinking Text in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Anything that you can select within a PowerPoint slide can serve as an anchor. While all slide objects can function as anchors, text does have some characteristics that make it work as a “visible” anchor. Unlike other anchors, hyperlinked text in PowerPoint is underlined automatically – and thus visible as an anchor. We will explore the different aspects of text anchors in PowerPoint 2013 within this tutorial.

Learn how you can use text as an anchor to create links in PowerPoint 2013.

Linking from within PowerPoint allows you to use your slides as a jumping point to provide even more content! We all know that the internet is a storehouse of so much content, and sometimes you may want a click on your slide to open a web page. Show the web page to your audience, close it and you are back on the slide you clicked. You can now seamlessly move on to your next slide. This sort of activity is easy to recreate.

Learn PowerPoint: Anatomy of a Link

January 11, 2016

Anatomy of a Link

Linking (or hyperlinking) makes objects and documents "connected" to each other. To provide an analogy, consider each slide or presentation to be an individual computer on a network. Individual computers do some awesome work, but the network is much more useful, and increases the worth of each individual computer. In this case, the linking adds the "network" to your PowerPoint files. Linking can happen from one slide to another, or even to another file or a website from within PowerPoint presentations. In each of these linking scenarios, you will find that three factors are always present.

Learn about the prerequisites for linking in PowerPoint.
