PowerPoint Transitions are extremely useful in emphasizing the change from the previous to the next slide. We have already seen how to learn all the transitions quickly. In this article, we discuss how to apply transition to multiple slides and see the results.
Amazing presentation with few clicks using PowerPoint Morph
PowerPoint Morph is a revolutionary feature. It eliminates the need for complex animation. Technically speaking, PowerPoint Morph is a transition, but in reality it can be widely used a subtitute/enhancement for complex animation. At the time of publishing this post, only Office Insiders have access to this feature. But no harm in learning the concept anyway. It will be released soon for all Office 365 customers.
Watch this 12 minute video to know all about it.
Here is an example of how PowerPoint Morph can be used.
I posted this blog article about flying a plane using PowerPoint few days back.
Just realized that all the effort I put in to animate that thing is not necessary!
The new Morph feature makes it possible with few clicks.
This feature is a part of Office Insider program. It is like the beta version of next update to Office.
Even if you may not have this feature right now, it is worth seeing how much Microsoft is trying to make our lives easier. It is just a video this time. No detailed steps (because most customers do not have it yet).
Just finished a one-week tour of New Zealand. Covered 20 customers and 1100+ users. During the session for Air New Zealand, I promised them that I will write a blog about how to make a plane fly using two simple yet powerful PowerPoint features: Remove Background and Motion Path. Watch the video. I have also put detailed instructions below.
In the earlier post, we saw how boring text can be converted into interesting and high-impact slides. The only pending problem was that splitting text into words or characters needed to be done manually. That is a tedious process. Therefore, I wrote a macro to simplify this activity. Read on to find out how to download and use this macro.
Most presentations are boring. Let them be. Make your presentations stand out. One simple method of creating high impact slides to use the text to your advantage. Here is a an example. Watch the video (4 min)
Agenda slide is usually the second or third slide. During the course of the PowerPoint presentation, we may have to refer to that slide frequently, especially when the next agenda item is taken up. Most of us copy paste that slide multiple times. This may work, but if the agenda slide changes, we may forget to update other slides.
The same method can be used to refer to any key slide or slides during the presentation. The key thing expectation is that you may show this slide at any point during the presentation. After showing the slide, how do you come back to the slide where you were? Here is how you do it.

Yours is the fifth presentation in a conference. You have a one hour time slot. By the time your turn comes, things are severely delayed. Just before you go on stage, you are told that you have only 30 minutes. Your presentation is already copied to a common laptop which is on the podium. You have absolutely no chance of editing the presentation on time. You try to speed up the presentation initially, but soon, you will fall back to your regular speed. You are doomed for an imcomplete presentation dilemma.
You are half way through the presentation. The time allotted (which is now 30 minutes) is getting over. The organizers are showing you placards like 5 min, 3 min, 0 min, end now…
At this point you are really in a fix. The audience knows that you are nowhere near the end of the presentation. But you must finish you now. Otherwise some bouncer is going to take you off the stage in few minutes.
You also know that you have not done justice to the incomplete presentation. It is a hopeless situation. But you still want to salvage it in a professional and elegant manner.
How do you do that? .. THAT is the real problem. Read on to find out the solution to this problem.
