Gear Graphics for PowerPoint - Series 1 of 5

Gear Graphics for PowerPoint - Series 1 of 5

Gears are amazing as graphics, and even more amazing when they are animated in unison with each other. Gears denote that things are moving, something is happening, and it is happening concurrently as part of a team effort. Yes, gears mean action. Have you ever wanted to use animated or non-animated gear graphics in your PowerPoint slides? For many people, using gears and animating them in PowerPoint can be challenging! Why? That’s because gears come in all sorts of sizes, and even the size of teeth in your gears can differ! And more importantly, the teeth of your gears may not move with each other well. You may spend hours trying to sync gears with each other. Fortunately, we solved all these problems for you! We created these special gear graphics for you that animate perfectly all the time. What’s more, we animated each of these gears, so that you have a painless ready-to-use solution.

Download and use these gears in your slides.

TTML XML Files for the STAMP Add-in in PowerPoint 2016, 2013, and 2010 for Windows

We already showed how you can use the STAMP add-in for PowerPoint to manually add captions for videos right inside PowerPoint. While manually adding captions is a great way to get easily started, professional organizations use TTML files. TTML files are markup files, not too different in structure from the HTML web pages, and typically they have the XML file extension.

File Formats in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Quick, how many file formats (types) can PowerPoint 2016 save your slides to? If you take count of every single format from the necessary to the irrelevant (and forget the missing ones), then the number is 28. Some of these could be genuinely helpful, such as the MPEG-4 Video export and others like GIF, JPG, PNG, WMF, and EMF ensure that you get good graphic outputs. And RTF outlines can sometimes be a boon.

You can use many webinar options, but did you know that Microsoft included a basic, free option right inside PowerPoint? This option is known as Present Online.

Handout Master View

Handout Master View in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Handouts are documents you can print from within PowerPoint that include slide representations from your presentation. PowerPoint lets you include as many as 9 slides on each Handout page. Of course, with 9 slides on a page, your slides will look more like thumbnails. You can also choose to print just one slide on every handout page, so then your Handout pages will look like individual slides printed on a page. Most Handouts are created to be printed, and the look and feel of these printed Handouts is determined by the Handout Master. To access and make edits to the Handout Master, you need to get to the Handout Master view in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.
