Never the Paint Brush -- Always the Artist
The presentation process, if it's to be meaningful and effective, will always be a highly unique and
creative one. And to that end, the role of the serious design professional with some keen insight into the personal communication
process will be irreplaceable. Although the makers of many presentation graphics packages will tout "anyone can be a
presentation designer" now, it's simply not true. They can certainly help people avoid some design pitfalls and make more
features accessible to the masses, but the "common sense" wizard will never be a reality in our lifetime.

Add or Delete Points (Vertexes) for Shapes
The Edit Points option gives you control over how you want a shape to look, but sometimes you might find it difficult to edit
a certain segment in a shape because there are no points available to manipulate -- or maybe there are far too many points!
PowerPoint provides a simple solution for this problem -- you can add and delete vertexes from a shape.
Shading and Effects for Tables
Tables in PowerPoint help you to make your numerical data or other content look organized. They also make it easy
for your audience to quickly comprehend the data. You can make this task even more effective by selecting particular
cells in the table, or the entire table, and then changing their shading and applying some effects to them so that
they are highlighted.
Determine if SP1 is Installed
In our Update Office 2013 to Service Pack 1 tutorial, we showed you how to install the Service Pack 1 update for Office 2013. There
are chances that the SP1 update can be installed automatically on your computer without notifying you -- or your company's IT
department could have rolled the SP1 update for you. Whatever the case may me, it is important to first find out whether your
version of Office 2013 already has the SP1 installed or not.

Apply Fills to Plot Area of Charts
The Plot Area for a chart is the layer or a backdrop upon which the chart itself is placed. This layer has axes on its
perimeter and also, the Data Series and Gridlines are placed above this layer. By default, the Plot Area has no fill
attributes, and thus it shows the slide's background. This may look plain, and that by itself is no reason to change the fill of
the Plot Area. However, there are times when the slide background itself is busy -- and adding a different fill to the Plot
Area can then make the chart appear more clear.
Apply Solid Color Fills to Plot Area of Charts
You can apply any fill to your chart's Plot Area. Typically, the Plot Area possesses no fill attributes, and thus shows the slide's
background. The reason why you would like to change this attribute is to highlight the Data Series and Gridlines that populate your
chart's Plot Area, especially if you have a busy slide background. There are various fills that you can apply to the Plot Area,
such as a solid color, a gradient, a picture, a texture, or a pattern. In this tutorial, let us learn how to apply a solid fill to
the chart's Plot Area.
Learn PowerPoint 2007 for Windows
Microsoft Office 2007 is one of the most popular Office suites released so far by Microsoft.
Even after so many years, it continues to be one of the major programs still in use.
However, after years of use, your installation of Office 2007 may not run too well. You may encounter
crashes or even some corrupted files. Additionally you may see some error messages when you launch PowerPoint
2007 or some of the other Office 2007 programs. As a result, you may feel frustrated and might want to do
something magical that will solve these issues.
Change the Default Template or Theme
When PowerPoint is launched, it opens with an empty presentation of just one slide. This one slide typically
has placeholders for a title and a subtitle -- and any text you type shows up in black over a white slide
background. Why do you have to live with these defaults? Can you change this blank presentation so that you
get a slide that's part of your custom PowerPoint template or Theme? Or even any of the other templates / Themes
built within PowerPoint?

Preserving Slide Masters
Have you ever applied a new Slide Master to existing slides in PowerPoint - and then found that the old Slide Master just
disappeared! Poof - how did that happen? The typical answer to that question is your existing Slide Master was not
"preserved", and since no slides used it anymore, PowerPoint just decided to clean it up altogether. So if you don't want this to
happen again, then you must preserve your Slide Masters.
