Is Your PowerPoint a Presentation or a Business Report?

Is Your PowerPoint a Presentation or a Business Report?

Did you know that there is an unspoken fact in the presentations’ world? This fact is that nearly half, or even more, of the PowerPoint presentations, and presentations created in other programs are not going to be projected onscreen and presented in a boardroom or a conference venue, or even used in a webinar. Really? Where did these presentations come from? The other half of all presentations created are internal business reports that contain millions of slides floating within the mail inboxes and other folders of most business, educational, and other entities.

Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs

Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

All Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint 2016 may have any number of buttons that represent commands but they are not scattered all over the tab area. In fact, they are all neatly arranged together in Groups. Each of these Groups has a name that describes what the commands within that Group do. For example, the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon has a group named Set Up, which contains all commands that help you set up your slideshow, such as changing show settings, hiding slides, rehearsing and recording slideshows, etc.

It is only sensible to imagine that you should use this Group concept while creating your own custom Ribbon tabs. In fact, PowerPoint will not let you add any command anywhere else other than within a custom Group.

Adding Commands to Custom Groups in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If you want to really benefit from customizing your Ribbon in PowerPoint 2016, then you'll certainly want to add some commands that are not placed by default within any of the Ribbon tabs. Or maybe you want a particular command available on the Home tab of the Ribbon. Whatever your intent may be, you cannot place any commands within the existing groups that are built within PowerPoint. You first need to add a custom group within any of the tabs available in the Ribbon. Thereafter, you need to populate them with commands.

No Shape Outline

No Shape Outline in PowerPoint 365 for Mac

Whenever you insert a new shape into a PowerPoint slide, you can see that it is filled with a solid color and has an outline by default (this may differ depending on the Theme applied to your presentation). You can remove the fill of the shape as well as the outline. In this tutorial, we'll learn how to remove an outline from a shape so that it only includes a fill without any outline. Whatever you do, make sure that you either remove the fill or the outline because if you remove both, then your shape will no longer be visible.
