An outline in PowerPoint has two meanings, that are related yet different.

Such outlines are needed for all presentation programs, and also for video editing and playwriting programs. Secondly, an outline of a PowerPoint presentation has another specific meaning. It is all the text content of the presentation that’s inserted within any of the text placeholders.

Add Headers and Footers to Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

The terms Header and Footer typically come from word processing programs; these denote repeated elements that show at the top and bottom of every page. Headers and Footers work similarly on PowerPoint slides: the Footer is a line of text that usually appears at the bottom of a slide. Typically, the Footer area includes three placeholders: Date, Footer, and Slide number. By default, the footer with one or more of these three placeholders appears on every slide in a presentation, but you can change that as required.

Are You Violating Copyright Laws?: by Alex Leopold

September 7, 2017

Alex Leopold

“I pulled it from Google images so it’s okay.” If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone developing a presentation, proposal or template say this I wouldn’t need a paycheck. I equate finding and using images similar to passing one’s driving test. If you were never taught the rules of the road, you’re naturally going to use your best judgment based on your experience and knowledge at hand. Alex Leopold shares a chart that details how to ascertain whether or not you are infringing on someone else's intellectual property (IP).

Viewing Sections in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If you have a presentation with a large Section, containing many slides, then you may find that this one Section makes it difficult to see all the other remaining Sections. This is because these many slides cover up so much screen real estate making it difficult for you to see other stuff, such as slides in other Sections. And if you want to drag a slide from one Section to another, you may be at a loss to comprehend what you will end up with.

Viewing Sections with many slides requires a different approach in PowerPoint 2016.
