INSCALE's PowerPoint Showcase

INSCALE's PowerPoint Showcase

We explored INSCALE's Morph presentation a while ago. This time, the folks at INSCALE share their showcase presentation in which their designers combine composition, aesthetics and artistic vision. Again, the folks at INSCALE have pushed PowerPoint's abilities to another limit. I asked INSCALE's Dominic Späth: How do you approach presentations that can be saved and shared as Youtube videos? Also, is there a market for such showcase decks?

Explore Fonts: Arial

Explore Fonts: Arial

There is a tale that Microsoft commissioned Arial because they wanted something similar to Helvetica as part of their Windows 3.1 operating system in 1992. The latter part may be true, but Microsoft did not commission Arial. Arial was already in existence, ten years prior in 1982 as a bitmap font for IBM printers. It evolved from a 1920s typeface called Monotype Grotesque. However, it won't be diluting the truth to state that Arial owes its omnipresence to Microsoft Windows.

Explore Arial, a font that's so omnipresent that you may have grown up using it!

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations -- one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!

Find and Replace Words

Find and Replace Words

If you created a long presentation for a particular event or concept and then realize that you used the wrong terminology across the presentation, then what would you do? Yes, you can manually find the problem word and replace its each occurrence. But what if you have more than a few slides? Or even then, you might miss out locating the problem word in some occurrences. Your best choice is to do replace using the Find and Replace option in PowerPoint 2016.

Language Options on the Status Bar

Language Options on the Status Bar

In PowerPoint 2016, when you select any text container such as a text placeholder, shape, or text box, then you may (or may not) see the language specified for the text container on the Status Bar. However it is quite possible that you may not be seeing any language specified on the Status Bar, and this can happen for one of two reasons.

Recovering Unsaved Presentations

Recovering Unsaved Presentations

Imagine this situation: you started working on a presentation, saved it couple of times, then got so much involved in your work that you spent an inordinate amount of time working on it without saving it. Then, your computer unexpectedly crashes or just shuts off due to some unexpected crisis. Or maybe just PowerPoint crashes for some reason. Does it mean you are now left with your presentation in the status when you last saved it and lost all your work? Not really because you can restart PowerPoint, and one of two occurrences may happen.

Research Tools

Research Tools

Creating a slide deck, and you suddenly want to authenticate a figure or double-check a fact? Well, there’s no need to open a web browser or even access a conventional dictionary. Research, a less explored option available is available within most Microsoft Office applications, including PowerPoint. This option connects with various online and offline reference sources such as translations, dictionaries, and news services.



Do you quickly need to translate your slides from English to French or some words from English to Hindi? The best option available to you is to get a professional translator but did you know that PowerPoint includes rudimentary translation skills? This translation is not something that you could use without checking the results, but this is still a great start.
