File Types That Can be Opened

File Types That Can be Opened in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Programs such as PowerPoint are a very significant part of our workflows not just because of their vast abilities but also because they can understand content from so many file formats. These include file types that PowerPoint can save and open. We already explored file types that PowerPoint 2016 can save to, but when you go and look at the file types that PowerPoint 2016 can open, you’ll find that the list of file types is not exactly the same. There are several omissions and additions compared to that list.


File Menu and Backstage View

File Menu and Backstage View in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If you explore how people use PowerPoint, you will discover that people are successful finding options that are intuitive and easy-to-discover. They fail when options are hidden in drop-down menus or dialog boxes. Fortunately, Backstage view is from the former category of options. Let us explore existing features within Backstage view. You access Backstage view from the File tab. The File tab is placed at the left extreme of the Ribbon.


Adding Animation

Adding Animation in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint allows you to animate any slide object that can be selected on your slide. Such objects include pictures, shapes, text, bulleted lists, SmartArt graphics, charts, etc. You can tweak the way objects on your slides appear, move, and disappear by adding animation.

Rulers

Rulers in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

When working with multiple slide objects, you should have a visual cue about where you are placing slide objects. You can get exact coordinates of your slide objects using the positioning options in PowerPoint, but most of the time, you just need an approximate idea of where your objects are placed, and this can be easily obtained by using the Rulers option available in PowerPoint. Turning on this option shows you the rulers in PowerPoint. These rulers are located on the top and left parts of the active slide.
