Animating Slide Objects While Media is Playing in PowerPoint 2010

Let's imagine you have a 3 minute video or audio clip. Exactly after the clip has played for a minute, you want some text to appear super-imposed above the video clip, or just show on the slide while the audio clip is playing. All this while, the original audio or video clip should continue playing. It might seem difficult, but you can end up with these results quite easily using the Trigger Animation option. These Trigger animations typically happen as a result of a click on some other slide object -- but in PowerPoint 2010, you can now cause Trigger animations to also happen on media playback through a Bookmark.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Comparing and Merging Presentations

If you are working on a presentation with your clients, or even a co-worker -- then you might end up in a situation where you both did not work on the same copy, one after the other. Instead, you worked on two different copies. These copies contain changes done by you both -- some similar and some different. Now you need to compare and merge these copies into a single, cohesive file without losing anything at all! Yes, you can manually compare side by side in PowerPoint 2013 -- this option works great if there are very few changes. For anything more involved, you will want to use the Compare feature which was introduced in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows. This feature combines two presentations provided by you, and then shows you the differences between them. You can then decide which changes to include, or discard within the final version of your presentation.
