An Update on “Safe Fonts” for PowerPoint

Julie Terberg

There is a lot of confusing, incomplete, and often misleading information out there about choosing fonts in PowerPoint. Specifically, which fonts are considered safe to use when sharing files. Safe fonts are those that are common to most users and therefore will not be substituted when your PowerPoint file is opened with an operating system or Microsoft Office version that is different from your own. This is critical information for those who build templates, especially when the templates and presentations created with them will be shared around the world.

Bing Images Search by Layout

Bing Images Search by Layout

Searching for the right picture online involves more than just entering a search term and then praying that you find a picture that works best for you! You need to do a little more, and that “little more” may be as simple a task as using a filter on the Bing Image Search site. Several common filters are available to narrow down your search results on Bing Images Search, and one of these filters is Layout. With the Layout filter, you can restrict your search to pictures which are widescreen, square, or tall in orientation.

Learn how to search images in Bing using the built-in Layout filters.

Duplicate Slide Masters in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Duplicate Slide Masters in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Duplicating a Slide Master is a little different than adding a new Slide Master from scratch. And it is a smarter option because you do not have to make the same changes all over again. Let's explain this with a scenario. Imagine you have formatted your existing Slide Master by applying a Background Style, adding a logo, or even adding your own Picture placeholder layout. And now you want a new Slide Master that's almost the same as your existing one, but you want a different Theme Colors set to be used. For such a small change, it is advisable that you duplicate your existing Slide Master and make the small changes instead of starting all over again with a new Slide Master.

Should You Create Widescreen Slides?

June 18, 2018

Should You Create Widescreen Slides?

The problem may have been the projection screen which was quite small. However, the last presenter had projected slides on the same projection screen, and the slide content was always readable. Clearly, something was amiss. The problem was that a 16:9 Widescreen slide was projected on a Standard 4:3 projector/screen, thus reducing the slide’s screen estate.

Make sure that you know whether you must create widescreen or standard slides for your next presentation.
