Snap to Grid Settings in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you make Gridlines visible on your slide in PowerPoint 2016, you may wonder if there’s any benefit using the Gridlines other than the obvious benefit of possessing a visual grid that lets you place slide objects? The answer can be both Yes and No. Yes because you may believe that is all that happens on the surface. Moreover, no because unless you explore how the Snap to Grid option works, you will not realize the real benefit. Worse, this incredible option is not active by default!

Smarter Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Smarter Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Do you notice that any object you move, resize, or align in PowerPoint 2016 actually helps make your task easy! Move it a little closer, resize a wee bit, or even try spacing slide objects and the screen shows all sorts of helpful indicators in the form of dotted lines. The red, dotted lines that show up and then disappear are Smart Guides. These made their debut in PowerPoint 2010 and allowed you to position objects easily. More improvements were added in PowerPoint 2013 that enabled you to see how much further you need to drag so that one object on the slide is as wide as another adjacent object. In fact, you can also evenly space out objects without accessing any Ribbon tabs or typing a number within a dialog box!

Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Like Gridlines, Guides also allow you to position and snap your slide objects in place. For most professional slide designers, creating slides without guides would be very worrisome! When guides are enabled for the first time within PowerPoint, you can just see two guides by default. These guides are two dotted lines, one horizontal and the other vertical. They span to intersect exactly at the center of the slide.

In Silicon Valley, the Eleventh Commandment is Build a Better Mousetrap.

Rulers in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When working with multiple slide objects, you should have a visual cue about where you are placing them. You can get exact coordinates of your slide objects using the positioning options in PowerPoint, but most of the time, you just need an approximate idea of where your objects are placed, and this can be easily obtained by using the Rulers option available in PowerPoint. By default, the Rulers may not be visible, but when made visible, they are located on the top and left parts of the active slide.

Reuse Slides Through Drag and Drop in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

We explored previously how reusing your existing slides can be a great help, since it saves so much of your time. While bringing up the Reuse Slides Task Pane enables you to add selected slides to the active presentation, there is another easier and more intuitive way to reuse your slides. You can drag selected slides from the source presentation and drop them within the newer presentation. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to reuse slides through this drag and drop process within PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.

Analog Storyboards

June 28, 2018

Analog Storyboards

These days we are cocooned in a virtual world, a world where our minds are encircled by new touch devices of all sorts. So does touch translate to some texture? Some grain? No, not at all. In today’s world, touch means glass, metal, or plastic—and all of them have flat, non-textured, and non-grainy surfaces. Other senses such as sound are absent too. There’s no scribble of the pencil or the sound of paper being torn or turned.

Learn why we humans are more in tune with analog storyboards rather than electronic ones.


Reuse Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Reuse Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Reusing your existing slides can be a great help: first you need not recreate stuff you already have and secondly you are saving so much time that you can use more effectively to practice your presentation! Having said that, always start by creating an outline of your presentation. This is important because it gives you an opportunity to plan your slides all over again. Thereafter, reuse any existing slides. PowerPoint provides a quick command that locates specific slides, and enables you to add it to the active presentation. While this process works the same way in all versions of PowerPoint, there are small interface changes — in this tutorial, we’ll show you how to reuse slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.

Changing Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

June 27, 2018

Changing Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Each PowerPoint presentation contains several slides. Let’s compare each slide to a blank canvas or an empty sheet of paper! You can thereafter add content to the slides in much the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint, or a pen to write. For example, do you want some text? Then you must add a text box. Want a picture? Just insert a picture and place it anywhere on your slide! Wait, this is not really the proper way to work in PowerPoint!
