When you prepare your presentation, you should adapt it to the device, which will be used for
projecting it. Some devices or even laptops can have different sizes, so you can need to change
the sizes of your presentation.
In contrast to other Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Outlook, and Excel, PowerPoint
doesn't have the option that changes how to open hyperlinks by clicking with pressing or holding
Ctrl or without Ctrl.
PowerPoint is using local Windows settings to show grid spacing, figure sizes, etc. This can be an issue if
you prepare the presentation for different or multiple locales. Fortunately, you can temporarily change the
measurement units if you have strict style guide requirements.
If you plan to print your presentation in black and white (sometimes it is cheaper and even more informative
then printing in color), you should check how it will look like without color.
Instead of opening your PowerPoint presentation file and then clicking F5 or using other ways to start the
presentation, you can save your PowerPoint file in the PowerPoint Show format. Also, this format prevents
changes in the presentation.
PowerPoint is rarely used by the average Microsoft Office user, but those who use it frequently might find
these simple time-saving tips helpful.
By default, all files in PowerPoint (and all of the Office applications) are saved to Documents
folder or library (or My Documents under Windows XP) for the current user.
Each user has his or her own version of this folder, so that each person's documents are kept separate
depending on who is logged in to the PC.
Sometimes you want to show your presentation on a different computer, and that computer does not have the same
fonts as your PC.
To display that presentation correctly, you should embed the fonts in your presentation so that the desired
fonts will be available on the other PC.
