Imagine this situation: you started working on a presentation, saved it couple of times, then got so much involved in your work that you spent an inordinate amount of time working on it without saving it.

Explore Fonts: Arial

Explore Fonts: Arial

There is a tale that Microsoft commissioned Arial because they wanted something similar to Helvetica as part of their Windows 3.1 operating system in 1992. The latter part may be true, but Microsoft did not commission Arial. Arial was already in existence, ten years prior in 1982 as a bitmap font for IBM printers. It evolved from a 1920s typeface called Monotype Grotesque. However, it won't be diluting the truth to state that Arial owes its omnipresence to Microsoft Windows.

Explore Arial, a font that's so omnipresent that you may have grown up using it!

Creating and Editing Custom Dictionaries in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Although PowerPoint provides a spelling dictionary which contains a list of all common words, you might be working on a particular project that uses uncommon words not found in everyday language. You could edit a custom dictionary or load a ready-made third-party dictionary within PowerPoint. But you can actually create your own dictionary that includes a set of words for a particular project. So, if you need to do a legal presentation for a client once a year, you could create a separate dictionary for just this one project, and then edit it as required within a text editor such as Notepad.
