What does "Hole in the Paper" mean? This is a name for a graphic treatment that gives an appearance of something being visible from a frame of
torn paper. Typically it is difficult to create a graphic of this sort in PowerPoint. So we decided to create something so easy. In fact, this
ended up being so simple that anyone can now build this "hole in the paper" visual effect in just under one minute! How did we do that? We created
everything other than the picture you want to use. All you need to do is insert your own picture, send it behind everything else in your "slide"
and you are done.
Download and use these graphics in PowerPoint.
VBA Code: Remove Underlines from Descenders -- First a little history -- look at our Stop Underlining Your Descenders! article -- of course, as per that article you can manually remove underlines from all characters such as g, j, p, q, and y that sport descenders. However, the task of individually selecting characters to remove underlines is fine if you need to do so for an important slide title or just your opening slide. What if you want to do the same task for an entire presentation? You can do this task in PowerPoint super-quickly using some simple VBA code, as Steve Rindsberg of PowerPoint FAQ explains.

Prezi Notes for PowerPoint Users 01: Change Fonts -- OK, for all of you (and me too!) PowerPoint users, Prezi is not so easy to understand. That's not because Prezi is a difficult tool to use -- rather that's because we all have been so used to doing tasks in a certain way and expect the same workflows in Prezi, and that does not always happen! Clearly some unlearning is required. Read more.
Turn Off Animation Preview -- Animation previews can be irritating, especially if you add timed animations of longer duration -- maybe a 20 second animation. You will then have to wait until PowerPoint shows you the preview you did not ask for. Make a small change and you get another 20 second preview. Fortunately, it is easy to turn off these previews.

Keith Bortoluzzi partnered with Olivier de Saint Louvent to create Power-user, an add-in for PowerPoint. They are both strategy consultants, who work on a daily basis using PowerPoint.
