Six Ways to Win With Words

Six Ways to Win With Words

“Words, words, words! I get words all day through,” are the exasperated lyrics exclaimed by the title character of My Fair Lady, the classic musical play and film. Her exasperation is with the speech professor who is drilling her in word skills as part of an effort to elevate her social status from flower girl to an upper-class lady. Henry Higgins, the play’s fictional professor, is also exasperated—and so are countless real speech teachers and coaches, writers, and editors—with the decline of the English language. The drive for status in the play is a perfect parallel with the drive for career advancement in business; and one of the primary means to both ends is the same: a person’s speech.

Shape Subtract Command

Shape Subtract Command in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

PowerPoint lets you change the appearance of merged shapes. However, don't assume that just because this is so easy-to-use, the end results won’t be seriously impressive. Together, there are five options that let you merge shapes, and we have already explored four of them. In this tutorial, we'll show you how you can use the Subtract option to subtract one shape (or even multiple shapes), from the first selected shape.


No Fill for Shapes

No Fill for Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Whenever you insert a new shape into a PowerPoint slide, it is filled with a solid color by default (or the default fill may be different depending on the Theme applied to your presentation). Most of the time, you may leave that unaltered, but there may be times you want just the outline to be visible. This sort of outlining focuses the part of the picture that has to be highlighted. It is in scenarios like these where it can be useful to learn how to remove any fill.
