Among all the Shape Effects in PowerPoint, the 3-D ones stand apart. For any of the 3-D effects to work, you must understand two important 3-D parameters. These two parameters are 3-D Rotation and 3-D Depth. Although you can rotate any shape that has a Depth of zero, you really cannot see any Depth within a flat object. Thus you must first rotate your object and then add Depth.
We begin by exploring Morph, a transition in PowerPoint that is more than a mere "transition." In coming weeks, we have planned to bring you more Morph-specific content. In an exclusive conversation, Chad Jardine talks about GoReact, a "game film for presenters." In the Tutorials section, PowerPoint 2016 users can learn about Shape Effects, such as Glows and Soft Edges. Finally, do not miss the new press releases and templates of this week.
3-D Options in PowerPoint enable you to format the bevel style of a shape with many more options than those available in the conventional Bevel gallery. And when we say more, we actually mean a whole lot more! You can customize 3-D options such as contour, contour color, depth, depth color, materials, and lighting, almost like a full blown 3-D program.
Why would anyone want to duplicate slides? There are many reasons to do so; you may want to such as to create another slide that is similar to what you already have. You may also want to use the same slide twice, or create a slightly edited chart than what you already have on an existing slide; duplicating and editing is easier than redoing it again.
DataPoint is the PowerPoint add-on to display real-time information on your information screens. What more do you need? You can display information in real-time. Change the information on a second computer, and the data is updated on your screen. Want more attention? Set a notification sound when the data changes. Play a ping when a train is approaching the platform. Want even more attention? Just say that the train is arriving at platform 4. With DataPoint, you can now choose a voice (male or female) and use text to speech functionality to announce data changes.
By default, PowerPoint shapes that you insert on your slide are flat and two-dimensional. And this indeed works well most of the time. Yet, there are situations that may benefit from a 3D graphic. It is times like these that you can apply a plethora of Shape Effects that PowerPoint provides, or just use the Bevel shape effect that makes it stand apart by making your shape look embossed, like a button, or even a pillow.
The Soft Edges effect adds an eaten-up, feathered edge to a selected shape. PowerPoint does provide you with some ready-to-use pre-set Soft Edges, but you may want to edit the applied Soft Edges effect to be less or more pronounced. Whatever your reasons for customization, you can certainly edit the properties for the Soft Edges effect in PowerPoint 2016. For instance, you can change the soft edge size parameter.
Among the various Shape Effects available in PowerPoint, probably the most subtle one is the Soft Edges effect. This effect adds an eaten-up, feathered edge to a selected shape. Soft Edges work best with larger shapes, especially if you use some of the larger Soft Edge variations available. PowerPoint provides some ready-to-use Soft Edge presets.
Few, if any transition effects have generated a buzz like Morph! Morph technically may be a mere transition, but it adds capabilities to PowerPoint that redefines the way you work with slides altogether.
Applying a Glow effect adds a nice halo around a selected shape or most other slide objects. You may find that the Glow effect defaults just do not work for you all the time, especially since the default glow options are limited only to Theme Colors. So if you want to make some changes, you have to step outside these defaults and change the glow color, alter the spread or transparency, etc.
We first bring you a complete synopsis of Nancy Duarte's amazing keynote at the Presentation Summit. Next, we feature Jon Schwabish in an interview, where he talks about his new book that's already receiving rave reviews. The book is named Better Presentations. We then explore a fascinating service called Beamium that lets you share your PowerPoint slides in a unique way. We also explore how you can identify the file type of a font in Windows 10. This is helpful if you want to know if your font is OpenType, TrueType, or some other type. In the Tutorials section, PowerPoint 2016 users can learn about working with Slide Numbers. You can also learn so much about Shape Effects, such as Shadows and Reflections. Finally, do not miss the new press releases and templates of this week.
A Glow effect adds a hazed color perimeter outside the shape area, and by default, the Glow colors emanate from the active Theme. These default Glow colors work most of the time, but of course, you can change the Glow color to something entirely different. In this tutorial, you'll learn how you can change this Glow color to any color you want.

As part of our series on PowerPoint effects for shapes, we will explore the Glow effect. This effect adds a hazed color perimeter outside the shape area. This effect is an Outer Glow surrounding the shape, and not an Inner Glow effect. You can choose from various glow colors such as Theme colors or even any other color of your choice to match the look of the slide content.
A lot of work goes into creating slides with PowerPoint. But what happens with your presentations after creating them? Sometimes they are used for presentations at events, some other time you simply share the documents as marketing white papers. Mostly, there is not much information which you receive after sharing the document, and only a fractional number of the viewers will get in touch with you afterward. Instead of neglecting the presentation sharing process, you should invest adequate effort into marketing your presentations effectively.
