Learn PowerPoint 2010: PowerPoint File Formats

August 23, 2010

Quick -- how many file formats (types) can PowerPoint save to? If you count every single format from the necessary to the irrelevant (and forget the missing ones), then the number is 26 formats for PowerPoint 2010, the latest Windows version of this program! Some of these could be genuinely helpful (such as the new WMV export in PowerPoint 2010) and others such as GIF, JPG, PNG, WMF, and EMF ensure that you get good graphic outputs. And RTF outlines can be a boon sometimes.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Backstage View and Save Options

August 21, 2010

It looks like PowerPoint 2010 is getting more mainstream every day. More users are upgrading from PowerPoint 2003 to 2010 and skipping version 2007 in the bargain. It's strange that when I think I about this, I see them moving from the File menu to another File menu, and they will never work with the Office Button in PowerPoint 2007. Yes, PowerPoint 2010 brings back the File menu -- yet the new File menu is something entirely different than what you may have seen before because it is the gateway that reveals the Backstage view -- that again is a new feature in PowerPoint 2010.

Learn PowerPoint: Format Chart Legend

August 19, 2010

Charts in PowerPoint can be customized by changing the appearance of various chart elements. The legend is also a chart element and typically it is a box or area that codes via color or pattern all the series in a chart. The legend can be formatted to be placed at various locations within the chart area, and you can hide it altogether.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Chart Elements

August 19, 2010

Charts in PowerPoint comprise several elements that we call chart elements. Typical chart elements include series (and this could be one or more series with values), categories (again this can be one or more categories), Axes (horizontal, vertical, and in some cases a third axis as well), plot area (the active chart area), legend, chart title, etc. In this tutorial we'll learn more about these individual chart elements.

Office Tab 6

August 19, 2010

If you find it difficult to access the Window menu in Office 2007 and 2010 applications, then you will want to look at Office Tab. I use PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 often and find it difficult to navigate between multiple, open presentations -- and Office Tab makes life a lot easier in that type of scenario. In addition, Office Tab also works with Office 2003 versions of PowerPoint, Excel, and Word.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Chart Styles

August 18, 2010

Long time PowerPoint users will remember the difficulties of charting -- it was so painful, time-consuming, and repetitive a task changing the fills of all the series one after the other -- and if your presentation had more than one chart slide, then you also had to ensure that all charts looked the same. PowerPoint 2007 made things simple and PowerPoint 2010 takes it further by makes this sort of repetitive formatting easy and consistent with the Chart Styles option.

PowerPoint Repurposing

August 12, 2010

Today, billions of electronic presentations inhabit millions of hard disks in every corner of the world, and more than 90 percent of these presentations were created with Microsoft PowerPoint. Unfortunately, most have a short life span. Typically these presentations are used only once or twice, then filed and forgotten — an enormous waste of time and valuable information. Yet this content can be repurposed, redistributed and reused in a number of different ways.

Concept Slides: Fading Squares

August 10, 2010

Squares can be animated like any other shape to appear and build up but that looks conventional -- so I cooked up this different style that combines squares filled with pictures and other shapes that just have gradient fills to animate together in sequence. The end result is an animation style that's simple, yet different. All the gradients used are Theme aware -- so your squares will always look coordinated in any presentation. Feel free to download this slide and use it in your presentations.
