Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Toggle Visibility of Table Borders

There are a number of ways to create a table in PowerPoint -- from inserting them with a specified number of rows and columns, to something as intuitive as drawing your own table. Most of the tables you create using either of these two methods will show borders between individual cells. These borders make the segregation between cells obvious. Yet, at times you may not want to see the border altogether -- probably for design reasons.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Cookie Cutter Shapes

There is this video clip that Bruce Gabrielle posted on his blog, which shows how you can create a triangular table in PowerPoint by either creating a picture of the table itself (which makes the table non-editable) or by creating a picture of the table with just empty cells so that you can place a transparent table with figures or words over it. While both techniques are amazing, we wanted to use a process whereby not only is the table editable, but the ending shape need not be limited to just a triangle.

Learning PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Hiding Chart Series and Categories

Learning PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Hiding Chart Series and Categories

In PowerPoint, the entire chart data that shows up in the form of series and categories is actually stored within an Excel sheet. These series and categories may show up on your chart in different ways depending upon the chart type. Almost any chart type, even if it is not a column chart, compares one set of values with another. Once you delete any of these values, they no longer show on your chart -- so the level of comparison reduces. However deleting is not always the best option, especially if you want to retrieve those values later whenever required. The solution is to temporarily hide values you no longer need, and then unhide them as and when you want to expose those values.

PowerPoint provides an extensive array of built-in shapes which help you create great looking graphics for your slides.
