Data Labels Show [CELLRANGE] Rather Than the Expected Value or Number in PowerPoint Charts

August 9, 2018

Data Labels Show [CELLRANGE] Rather Than the Expected Value or Number in PowerPoint Charts

Do you see charts with data labels that read [CELLRANGE] rather than a real value or number? Do you see this behavior more in PowerPoint slides you receive from others, rather than the slides you create yourself? This is a known bug, and can effect users of PowerPoint 2010 and older versions if they open slides with charts created in PowerPoint 2013 and newer versions.

Select and Deselect Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Before you change or format something, PowerPoint expects you to first to make a selection, and then do something such as clicking a button to perform an action for the selected slide objects. If you cannot select an object, then you cannot modify it at all. Although this tutorial explains how you can select shapes on a slide, the process works the same way for any other slide object.

Reset Slide in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Sometimes we come across slides that can be hazardous to our vision! One look at such a slide, and it really doesn’t matter if the content is great or not. The reason why it no longer matters is because such slides have nothing understated about them, and they seem to ensure that audiences get distracted. You might end up with a similar slide for no fault of yours, because someone else prepared them for you! You now need to eradicate all the formatting on the slide to make it look more simple and clean. You may need to change the position, size, and text layout for the placeholders on the slide too. Fortunately, there is an easy, one-click process to restore some sanity in such slides.

File Menu and Backstage View in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

File Menu and Backstage View in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Backstage view is not akin to other PowerPoint views such as Slide Sorter view or Normal view that relate to working with slides. In fact, Backstage view is not a view in those terms, because you can be using Normal view (to work with slides) and Backstage view (to work with options) at the same time. Consider Backstage view as an over-sized menu that gives you access to many options. In PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, Backstage view and Presentation Gallery are one and the same for most purposes, except the way they are accessed. Let us explore existing features within Backstage view.

Six Ways to Win With Words

Six Ways to Win With Words

“Words, words, words! I get words all day through,” are the exasperated lyrics exclaimed by the title character of My Fair Lady, the classic musical play and film. Her exasperation is with the speech professor who is drilling her in word skills as part of an effort to elevate her social status from flower girl to an upper-class lady. Henry Higgins, the play’s fictional professor, is also exasperated—and so are countless real speech teachers and coaches, writers, and editors—with the decline of the English language. The drive for status n the play is a perfect parallel with the drive for career advancement in business; and one of the primary means to both ends is the same: a person’s speech.

Ten Easy Topics for Pecha Kucha

We have so many interactive and communicative visitors on Indezine.com. One question that has come up often is about topics for Pecha Kucha presentations. Let’s start with wondering about why do readers ask for topic ideas? Why not choose something that’s close to their heart or something that inspires them? That’s because Pecha Kucha presentations are not your typical PowerPoint slide decks. The second reason people ask for topic ideas is that this might be their first Pecha Kucha presentation, and they are not sure what will work, and what won’t.
