Animate 3D Models in PowerPoint Without Morph

We begin by exploring how you can animate 3D models in PowerPoint without using the Morph transition effect. This can be done via the new 3D animations. We also explore the topic of finding fonts that PowerPoint substituted without asking you. And if you changed your slide size to end up with a deck that loses fonts, backgrounds, and colors, you'll want to read how you can avoid this problem.

We look at creating PowerPoint Outlines in Notepad for Windows, and using Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can explore Smart Dynamic Guides and Inserting a Text Box. PowerPoint Online users can find out the differences between Text Placeholders and Text Boxes. And if that wasn’t enough for this week, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates released in the last week.

Stay informed about updated tutorials and happenings related to PowerPoint and presenting.

Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Microsoft Excel

Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Excel

Typically, the last thing I would want to do is create my presentation outline in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel. In one of my training sessions, I was showing participants how they could create presentation outlines for PowerPoint in Notepad or Microsoft Word, and one of the attendees wanted to know how he could create an outline in Excel! To understand why anyone would want to create an outline in Excel, you probably need to be an Excel junkie. Rather than go and discuss what an Excel junkie means, I’ll show you how an outline can indeed be created in Excel. This technique works on all versions of Excel for Windows and Mac OS X.

Inserting a Text Box in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

October 12, 2018

Inserting a Text Box in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

In PowerPoint, there are some differences between text placeholders and text boxes. As far as formatting for text placeholders and text boxes is concerned, almost everything else does work in the same way. However, there is one more vital difference between a text placeholder and a text box. You cannot insert text placeholders on a slide since they are part of the layout for your slide and already exist when you insert a new slide. Text boxes on the other hand need to be inserted manually.
