Here is a very useful collection. I am sure you have noticed the PowerPoint Icons – 450+ beautifully created SVG graphics. The problem is that you need to select and download icons on demand. Two problems. Firstly, it requires an internet connection and second problem is the need for inserting the same icon again and again.
I solved both problems by manually downloading each and every icon available today (7 Nov 2017). You can download this presentation (5 mb) and get offline access to all icons. Remember, SVG format allows these to be scaled without any loss of resolution. SVG support is available only with Office 2016 and upwards and of course Office Pro Plus.
Small little feature, but extremely useful if you edit lot of complex PowerPoint slides. Make sure you are editing a single slide. Adjust zoom to make sure that you can see the whole slide. The PowerPoint Editing Magic button is in the View tab – New Window. This creates two windows for the currently open presentation. Move between these windows using View tab – Switch windows. It will show you the same slide in both windows.
In one of the windows, zoom in to the slide so that you can see it in more detail. Edit whatever you want to and then go to the other window. (Alt – Tab also works). Here you can see the same slide at regular size. This eliminates repetitive zoom in and out activity and helps you get the desired results faster.
The same concept of new window can also be used when you are editing a layout or slide master and want to see the results instantly.
Good question. One Click Answer. Click on the File menu. Look at the Inspect Presentation area. If even a single slide has notes, the item Presentation Notes will appear automatically. Simple, Useful, Efficient.
