Motion Path Animations

Motion Path Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

The three basic animation types in PowerPoint: entrance, emphasis, and exit animations are something we have already explored. The fourth animation type is called Motion Path animations, and this is something more advanced in nature than the basic animation types explored so far. Motion Path animations determine the route (path) and the direction in which the animated slide object moves across or around on the slide. For example, you can move a slide object up, down, right, or left, on a preset or created motion path, or possibly anywhere you want.

PowerPoint's export options come into play after you have created your slide decks, and are looking for ways to share your slides with others in the most effective way possible. PowerPoint allows you to save your presentation in different forms, that allows you to view and share your slides on almost any device. Did you know you can create a PDF from your presentation, or export all slides to a video? If you need an old-fashioned way to share, you can burn your slides to a CD. You can also create Word document handouts. Finally, PowerPoint lets you save in so many other file formats.

Change Slide Layout

Change Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

A PowerPoint presentation comprises a bunch of slides and we like to think of these slides as akin to a blank canvas. You add content to the slides in almost the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint to color a canvas. However unlike a canvas, in PowerPoint, you don't have a non-structured freedom, and this can be good in many ways. Primarily, PowerPoint categorizes each slide type into one of its prescribed layouts.
