Live Preview in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Editing slide objects works almost the same way, irrespective of what you are actually editing -- you select the object you want to edit and change some attributes -- you then get to see what your changes have caused -- and then you either undo your changes (if you are not too happy with them) or just accept them and start working with another object. What if you could see/preview how an actual change will look on the slide object before you decide to accept or decline that change? PowerPoint 2016's Live Preview allows you to do just that -- this feature was first introduced in PowerPoint 2007 and continues being available in newer versions.

Change Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Each PowerPoint presentation contains several slides which many users believe are akin to a blank canvas or an empty sheet of paper! You can thereafter add content to the slides in much the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint to color a canvas. For example, do you want some text -- you add a text box. Want a picture -- just insert a picture and place it anywhere on your slide! Wait -- this is not really the way that you work with PowerPoint!

Text Placeholders vs. Text Boxes in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint has three types of text container: text placeholders, text boxes, and shapes -- we explain Shapes in our comprehensive section on Shape tutorials -- let us now look at the other two text container types. Aren't text placeholders and text boxes the same? Are they different? Moreover, why should we bother even if they are different? All these are valid questions, and the answers to them form one of the most important foundations in learning to create more structured presentations.

Default Behaviors for Action Buttons in PowerPoint 2013

Once you place Action Buttons on your slide in PowerPoint 2013, you can make them do all sorts of actions when clicked. What sets Action Buttons apart from other shape types in PowerPoint is the iconography they contain. For most users, an icon such as a leftwards arrow indicates moving to the previous slide and a rightwards arrow does indicate progressing to the next slide. Another advantage of these icon-equipped Action Buttons is that they are language independent, and can work very well in multi-language and international presentations. In this tutorial, you are going to explore the different types of Action Buttons, and their default behaviors.

Shapes may look basic or even primitive, but they are the building blocks of almost anything you create on your PowerPoint slides. Fortunately, you are not deprived of choices because PowerPoint provides plenty of shapes, neatly categorized into nine types. Among all the shape types, Action Buttons behave differently -- these are essentially rectangular shapes that are used as navigation aids to navigate between slides, or even another presentation, document, or a web URL.
