Is It, Like, OK To Say ‘Like’?

Is It, Like, OK To Say ‘Like’?

John Hamilton McWhorter V thinks that the pervasive and prolific insertion of the word “like” into daily conversations by teenagers—and increasingly by adults—is a positive contribution to spoken communication. Although Mr. McWhorter is an unimpeachable authority on language (Columbia University faculty and countless articles, papers, and books), I disagree with him; not with conversational usage, but in presentations. Given his estimable credentials, I cannot challenge his turf, only mine.

What’s normal?: by Jeetendr Sehdev

The Kim Kardashian Principle

Jeetendr Sehdev has a writing style that is not something you can call “normal,” and that’s what makes reading his book so much fun. More than fun, Jeetendr makes you introspect and explore why we are all stuck in a world where we follow norms that we don’t understand and don’t want to understand.

Working With Slide Numbers

Working With Slide Numbers in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If your presentation has many slides, it will be easy to identify the current slide in Slide Show view, as long as you have enabled slide numbers on your slides. In PowerPoint, you have to make these slide numbers visible since they don’t show by default.


Add Headers and Footers to Slides

Add Headers and Footers to Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

The terms Header and Footer typically come from word processing programs; these denote repeated elements that show at the top and bottom of every page. Headers and Footers work similarly on PowerPoint slides: the Footer is a line of text that usually appears at the bottom of a slide. Typically, the Footer area includes three placeholders: Date, Footer, and Slide number. By default, the footer with one or more of these three placeholders appears on every slide in a presentation, but you can change that as required.


Formatting Outlines (Weight/Thickness)

Formatting Outlines (Weight/Thickness) in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

In a previous tutorial, we explained the basics of formatting outline in PowerPoint 2007 using the Shape Outline gallery. You can explore more advanced options for almost all formats you can do with an outline. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can tweak the outline weight. Weight is the thickness attribute of the outline: you can change the weight all the way from a hairline thin line to a chunky thick line.


Add Headers and Footers to Notes and Handout Pages

Add Headers and Footers to Notes and Handout Pages in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Unlike slides which are primarily presented through a display device such as a monitor, TV screen or projector, the Notes and Handout pages in PowerPoint are essentially intended for printing. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can add Headers and Footers to make your printed Notes and Handout pages more professional-looking and useful.


Formatting Outlines for Shapes (Dashes)

Formatting Outlines for Shapes (Dashes) in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

In previous tutorials, we have explained the formatting of shape outlines in PowerPoint 2007 and changing the weight of shape outlines. In this tutorial, we'll show you how you can apply a dash style to the shape outline. A dashed line in PowerPoint 2007 can have plenty of variations: from a line with fewer dashes to ones with longer or smaller dashes, or even alternating small and long dashes.

Formatting Lines (and Shape Outlines)

Formatting Lines (and Shape Outlines) in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Shape fills in PowerPoint indicate something that is contained within the confines of the shape. Similarly, shapes have another attribute known as the "line" or the "outline". A line is the perimeter surrounding a closed shape or the line itself within an open shape. We will explore more about lines in this tutorial.


Formatting Outlines for Shapes (Weight/Thickness)

Formatting Outlines for Shapes (Weight/Thickness) in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

We have explained the basics of formatting shape outlines in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac. Now we take you further ahead to explore how you can change line weight to make the outlines thinner and thicker. So why would you want to alter the weight of an outline? There are many reasons. More often than not, you may want a line that's almost invisible or very thin. This lets your audience focus on other areas. At other times when you want the attention of your audience to focus on a particular line, then you can do so by increasing its weight. In this tutorial, we will also cover compound lines such as those that encompass double or triple lines.
