Learn how you can use presets in Shape Styles in PowerPoint and Microsoft Office.

In the first two tutorials in this series, we showed how you can get started with Presentation Companion, and set the connections. You also learned how to start the PowerPoint presentation from the mobile device on the desktop version of PowerPoint. Now we show how you can control the presentation from the mobile device and view Presenter Notes:

  1. Start your presentation on both the desktop version of PowerPoint and the mobile version.
  2. Your view on the desktop version will be the same as you have been used to all the time. If you have dual displays set up to use Presenter View, those will work too. The changes you see now will happen on PowerPoint Mobile, as you can see in Figure 1, below.

  4. Compare the notes you see in Figure 1 with the notes for the same slide in PowerPoint 2010's Normal view as shown in Figure 2, below. You'll notice that these notes are now accessible to you on your mobile device when you are presenting!

  6. You can also use the Previous and Next buttons shown previously in Figure 1 to navigate your slides, and the OK button stops Presentation Companion and disconnects the connection between the mobile device and your computer. You'll use this option to end your presentation.
  7. To end the connection from your computer, click the Stop button in the Add-Ins tab of the Ribbon as shown in Figure 3, below.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
