PowerPoint and Presenting News: March 13, 2018 | PowerPoint Concepts | Scoop.it
We first look at how insecure a slide can make people! Is that because as human beings, we like to believe we are perfect and always look out for excuses that may cover our mistakes? Also, do we use PowerPoint exactly the same way as we use Word or Excel? Is that the reason why people end up with dumb slides? We look at this aspect too. We then look at the various Office 365 subscription options. This for all of you who are so confused by the many options that Microsoft provides, and don't know where to begin exploring the differences. PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about the types of animations. We also look specifically at Entrance and Emphasis animations. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can learn about keyboard sequences and Guides.

Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac | PowerPoint Concepts | Scoop.it

Guides in PowerPoint 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. These guides are two dotted lines, one horizontal and the other vertical. They span to intersect exactly at the center of the slide.

PowerPoint Is Not Word or Excel

PowerPoint Is Not Word or Excel | PowerPoint Concepts | Scoop.it
Many bad presentations are a result of not using PowerPoint as a slide creation tool at all. Does that sound like a cryptic statement? Then let me encrypt it for you: many PowerPoint users just think of PowerPoint as an extension to Word and Excel, the other program that Microsoft included free of cost in the Office box. It gets worse. Not only do some users believe that PowerPoint is like Word or Excel, they even use it that way. Imagine approaching PowerPoint with a Word or Excel approach? Since Microsoft has kept the interface in all these three programs so similar, Word and Excel users are comfortable with PowerPoint from the minute they start using it. In fact, some of them don’t even notice that they are not using Word or Excel!

Millions of presentations are created, and you may have seen at least hundreds of presentations in your lifetime. Yet, how many of them do you remember a few days or weeks after you have seen them? You may see the occasional, amazing slide that you remember, but for most of us who are not PowerPoint designers, the bad slides are similar to what a Google Images search for the same term shows up.
