Learn PowerPoint 2010: Arrowheads

February 7, 2011

I have already explained the basics of outlines in PowerPoint 2010 and how you can change their weight and dash types. In this tutorial we'll learn about adding arrowheads to some of these outlines. So why do I use the term "some" rather than "all " outlines? That is because arrowheads can only be added to outlines within open shapes.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Shape Styles

February 7, 2011

PowerPoint's fill, line, and effect attributes enable users to customize the look of the presentation, but sometime it may take ages to get that perfect color coordination and even after spending time the final look may not match the Theme of the presentation. To end up with a coordinated color combination for the slide objects in your presentation, you can use the Shape Styles gallery that contains a collection of prebuilt styles. These styles are all Theme-specific, so if the presentation Theme is changed - you'll end up with new Shape Styles.

Learn about applying Shape Styles in PowerPoint 2010 to impart Theme coordinated fills, outlines, and effects.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Add Slide Background Fills to Shapes in PowerPoint

February 1, 2011

You have already learned how to add different fills for shapes in PowerPoint 2007. As you have seen in those shape fill tutorials, the Shape Fill gallery displays only 4 fill options: solid fill, picture fill, gradient fill, and texture fill. There is one more shape fill option, the Slide background fill which you can't access from Shape Fill gallery. The Slide Background fill option is different from other shape fill options because instead of filling something into the selected shape, it makes the slide background area behind the shape visible into the selected shape.

Jamie Garroch

A client asked us recently "can I use the PowerPoint content you’ve developed for us on an iPad?" The answer we gave was "what a great question, can we get back to you"! We like our gadgets at ActivePresentation so this gave us a great opportunity to learn about a new one, even if at the core it should be familiar to any designer due to its Apple heritage. So we eagerly set out to test the experience of using PowerPoint presentations on the iPad.
