Reverse Engineer Charts

Imitation is the best form of flattery - and that motto will help you create charts that are so much better! Before we proceed, let us discuss whether imitation is stealing? The answer to that question is that you must only look at imitation as a source of inspiration. And make sure that you leave your own imprint to whatever you create. You can do so by investigating the chart content well, making changes that work for you, and improvising all the time.

SmartArt is a great new feature that Microsoft added in PowerPoint -- yet many users want to convert their SmartArt graphic to bulleted text, or even to individual editable shapes that can be manipulated further. Yes, you can convert SmartArt to individual shapes, but do remember that this is a one-way process, and you lose any edit-ability for the SmartArt graphic from that point of time. However, converting to shapes does mean that you have complete control over moving, resizing, deleting, or formatting individual shapes.

More than a decade ago, someone suggested that over 30 million presentations are delivered every single day.

Nowadays slides are also created on tablets and Smartphones, and more importantly also on online presentation platforms that provide users with the tools they need without installing any program. One such platform is emaze, and in this review we will explore this platform.
