Learn PowerPoint 2003: Reuse Slides in PowerPoint

October 14, 2010

Reusing slides from an existing presentation (or several presentations) is a great way to add some common slides that you end up using in most presentations. I always suggest you to first create and import an outline so that you have a structured presentation in place -- thereafter do use the Reuse slides option to add more slides or even replace existing ones. Finally you can add any new slides that you need to create from scratch.

Learn PowerPoint: Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Microsoft Excel

October 06, 2010

Typically, the last thing I would want to do is create my presentation outline in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel.

To understand why anyone would want to create an outline in Excel, you probably need to be an Excel junkie -- but rather than go and discuss what an Excel junkie means, I'll show you how an outline can indeed be created in Excel -- this works on all versions of Excel for Windows and Mac OS X.

Embedding PowerPoint from SkyDrive on your Blog or Web Site

October 04, 2010

Animated Slides: Flow of Electricity

October 01, 2010

Flow of Electricity

A participant in one of my training sessions wanted to create a simple animation that shows the flow of electricity through a thin tube -- this presentation was created as a result of that question. Each animated tube is actually a long rectangle placed one over the other -- and only the top one is animated with a wipe animation. A small shape such as a circle or rounded rectangle was animated simultaneously on a Motion Path to sync with the wipe -- you could even use the lightning bolt shape within PowerPoint's shapes instead of a circle!
