Presenter View in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

December 26, 2017

Presenter View in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint 2016’s Presenter View is a purpose-built view that accompanies Slide Show view. This view is beneficial in an environment that has at least two displays such as a laptop and a projector. The projector then shows the actual slides – that is what we commonly call Slide Show view. However, you see the Presenter view on the laptop. In Presenter view, you get to see much more than just the slide — rest assured that the audience viewing the projector output see only the slide!

Identify 32-Bit or 64-Bit in PowerPoint and Office 2010 for Windows

Sometimes, you want to know whether you are running a 32 or 64-bit version of PowerPoint or Office. Yes, if you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, then there’s no ambiguity in the fact that you have to be running a 32-bit version of Office. But if you are running a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows, you may be running a 32 or a 64-bit version of Office. Many sysadmins and even users run 32-bit Office within a 64-bit Windows environment because there are add-ins that may not work in a 64-bit version of Office. Or you may have another reason. Luckily, it’s easy to identify 32-bit or 64-bit if you know where to look.

Find out whether your PowerPoint and Office 2010 version is 32 or 64-bit.

My first presentation was not successful. Weeks went into preparing content. I didn’t focus on “mindset” I needed for a great performance. Since then I have developed Communicating with P.O.W.E.R. – my own methodology. Follows these steps and you’ll deliver successful speeches and presentations every time.

Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

December 20, 2017

Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Your slides remain the same, yet the various views in PowerPoint make exploring those same slides a little different. This approach makes sense because viewing slides in Slide Show view gives an entirely different perspective than editing them in Normal view. Further, it’s easier to reorder and work with multiple slides in Slide Sorter view and make changes to individual slides in Normal view.

All put together, PowerPoint 2016 provides you with ten different views. Eight of these views can be accessed from the View tab of the Ribbon.

Learn about various views that allow you to edit and show slides in PowerPoint 2016.

Use Non-Installed Fonts in PowerPoint

You all know that you can easily change the font for any selected text in PowerPoint, by choosing any installed font on your system. But did you know that you can use fonts that don’t exist on your system! This is either a trick or a bug and is similar to the analogy of a glass, half full. Some would complain about the glass being half-empty while others would be satisfied with the glass being half-full! In other words, this is a two-edged sword.

Difference Between UPPERCASE and All Caps

December 13, 2017

Difference Between UPPERCASE and All Caps

This has been a frustrating issue for many PowerPoint users, and also users of other Office programs. You type some text that is sentence case, but the results are all capital case! Yes, you can use the Change Case option, but why should you have to do so for each slide? The answer is not too obvious, and to understand why this happens, you must know that there are two ways to add capitalized text in Microsoft Office programs.

STAMP - Accessibility Add-in for PowerPoint

December 13, 2017

STAMP - Accessibility Add-in for PowerPoint

Microsoft has made available STAMP (Sub-titling text add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint), a free add-in for PowerPoint that enables you to create captions for video and audio files within your PowerPoint presentations. In addition to manually adding captions, you can also work with any media files that have associated Timed Text Markup (TTML) files. This add-in lets you import the TTML files directly into your presentation. If you don’t have a TTML file, you can still add captions directly in your presentation. Having said so, TTML captions allow some extra niceties since they can be easily formatted to use text color, text alignment and other styling elements for the captions.

This add-in works in PowerPoint 2010, 2013, and non-Office 365 versions of PowerPoint 2016. All these are versions that run on Microsoft Windows.

Learn about STAMP, a PowerPoint add-in that enables you to create captions for video and audio files.
