Character Spacing in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Character Spacing in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Font size does make a difference for the aesthetics of your slide, but what do you do if the text itself uses more or less space than you may want? Sometimes, you may want the text to take just a wee bit lesser space so that all content can fit within two lines rather than three. If you would like to alter the spacing between text characters, you can do so by using PowerPoint’s Character Spacing option, which affects the appearance and readability of both title and body text. Essentially Character Spacing is the amount of space in-between individual letters.

Explore Character Spacing options in PowerPoint 2013.

Creating Slide Backgrounds in Photoshop

If PowerPoint represents something more than anything else, it is the slide – and while you can use a white slide bereft of any graphic treatment, more often than not you will want to use something else. That’s because the background elements of a slide are a representation of the brand of your company, or even an expression of your personality.

Adding Commands to Custom Groups in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

If you want to really benefit from customizing your Ribbon in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, then certainly add some commands that are not placed by default within any of the Ribbon tabs. You’ll notice that all commands are placed within Groups. Whatever your intent may be, you cannot place any commands within the existing Groups that are built within PowerPoint. You first need to add a custom Group within any of the tabs available in the Ribbon. Thereafter, you need to populate them with commands.

Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

All Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint may have any number of buttons that represent commands but they are not scattered all over the tab area. In fact, they are all neatly arranged together in Groups. Each of these Groups has a name that describes what the commands within that Group do. It is only sensible to imagine that you should use this Group concept while creating your own custom Ribbon tabs. In fact, PowerPoint will not let you add any command anywhere else other than within a custom Group.

Handout Master View in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Handouts are documents you can print from within PowerPoint that include slide representations from your presentation. PowerPoint lets you include as many as 9 slides on each Handout page.

You can also choose to print just one slide on every handout page, so then your Handout pages will look like individual slides printed on a page.
