Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Change the Numbered List Style

PowerPoint allows you to choose from several styles for your numbered lists -- there are variations in digits, alphabets, and Roman numerical styles. By default, PowerPoint 2013 uses the 1, 2, 3 style for numbered lists. And since you can change bulleted list styles, it is only natural that you expect some changes to be allowed for numbered list styles too.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Change Bulleted List to Numbered List

In PowerPoint when you type text within a placeholder, the default result is that you create a bulleted list. Also, when you import an outline, all the content other than the slide titles ends up becoming bulleted text. While this may work in some situations, at other times you may want to either remove the bullets altogether, or convert it to a numbered list.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Import Pictures for Bullets

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Import Pictures for Bullets

PowerPoint enables you to use picture bullets rather than the conventional symbol bullets, and while you can choose from an impressive collection of ready-to-use picture bullets available, you can also import your own pictures to create a unique bullet for your text lists. So why would you want to import your own picture bullets? Probably because you want their color to match your company branding, or you want to use a stylized bullet that matches your logo -- whatever your reason may be, do remember that detailed graphics don't work well as bullets -- the more closer your graphic looks to the conventional dot-shaped bullet, the better it will appear for consistency and visual reasons.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Transparency for Shape Outlines

January 14, 2015

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Transparency for Shape Outlines

Shape Outlines such as solid colors and gradients have a transparency attribute that lets you reduce the opacity of a line so that the slide object or background behind shows through. Transparency is calculated in percentages and you can change its value all the way from 0 to 100%. Changing this transparency is useful when you want to show a line that represents something different than a line that has no transparency. For example, you could connect two shapes with a line that’s not transparent to represent an existing relationship – and then use a semi-transparent line to link between two shapes that represents a non-existent or upcoming relationship.

We begin with our new graphics collection of Bulbs -- something that you can use as an analogy in so many ways. We then bring you Jigsaws, and these will help you create your own slide visuals too. And many times, both bulbs and jigsaws may appear clichéd, unless you use them as just one part of your entire graphic? To give you an idea, put a bulb within a human head graphic, and it has another meaning. Add it within a book, and the significance changes. We then explore recording video in Adobe Presenter, an eLearning add-in for PowerPoint. And then we bring you some tutorials on working with fonts, themes, and bulleted lists within PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. And don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Use Dingbats and Other Characters as Bullets

PowerPoint provides you with umpteen options to change the appearance of your bullet points -- you can change the bullet styles, format the bullet size and its color, and use pictures as bullets. In addition, you can use a character from any font, including dingbats as a bullet. So what are dingbats? Dingbats are fonts which contain decorative symbols rather than alphabets and numbers. Wingdings is a good example of a dingbats font since it is installed by default on all computers.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Picture Bullets

January 12, 2015

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Picture Bullets

PowerPoint provides several bullet styles that you can choose from -- but they do look a little canned since almost every PowerPoint slide these days uses the same bullet styles! You could get rid of bullets altogether and use small sentences/paragraphs instead, or maybe you could explore picture bullets -- to insert any picture as your bullet. Of course, for picture bullets to work, your picture needs to be small, no larger than a medium-sized dot. And it helps if it has transparent areas. If all this talk about the size and transparency of a picture bullet makes you curious, don't worry because we explain it all!

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Customize the Bullet Size and Color

While it is a great option to change bullet styles, sometimes you don't want to really change just the bullet characters themselves. You might want to alter the size of the bullet character so that it is somewhat smaller or larger than the text before which it is placed. Or maybe you need a particular color to be used? Most of the time, the defaults actually work best -- but just in case you want to make these changes, this is how you will go about the whole process in PowerPoint 2013.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
