Bucket diagrams are so expressive, useful, and direct in the message they provide. Yes, these diagrams have everything to do with buckets
and the money they contain. While the buckets themselves represent a source or destination, the money represents the financial liquidity.
Buckets show items in distribution, they represent the flow of things or display collections of items. An empty bucket can indicate the
capacity to which it can be filled. A bucket pouring money in another could represent the distribution. You can have buckets that are full,
empty, or somewhat full. And you can move the money from one bucket to another!
Download and use these bucket graphics.
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.

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.
