Prepare the presentation for printing

If you plan to print your presentation in black and white (sometimes it is cheaper and even more informative than printing in color), you can instantly check its appearance without color.

Automatically show your presentation

Instead of opening the 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.

Turn off red, wavy underlines for spelling errors

By default, the PowerPoint spelling checker checks the spelling in all text elements in the presentation: slides, outlines, note pages, and handout pages. Like other Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel, PowerPoint underlines all words that it cannot find in its dictionary and might be misspelled with a red wavy underline.

Header and Footer on slides

The Header and Footer blocks usually display duplicating information, such as the presentation or event title, the company logo, name, slide number, etc. The Header shows the information at the top, and the Footer shows the information at the bottom of each slide.

Protect presentation

Suppose your presentation contains sensitive or confidential data, or you might want only certain people to be able to open and modify a presentation. In that case, you can encrypt the file and protect it with a password. Generally, to ensure that no one can change the presentation, it is better to save the presentation as images or as a PDF file.

Embed fonts to view presentation on different PCs

If you transfer or share a presentation file with custom fonts to another computer or even a tablet and plan to demonstrate it there, you cannot be sure that the other device has all the fonts installed on your PC or laptop. To display the presentation correctly on every possible device, you should embed the fonts into your presentation to make the required fonts available on other PCs, laptops, tablets, etc.

Generate random text in PowerPoint

You may need to create a slide with random text for some reason. For example, to demonstrate some features, to create templates, etc. PowerPoint has two hidden formulas to generate text.

How to make a splendid circular flow chart

Iterative processes are the core of any business, and Microsoft PowerPoint provides several templates for cyclic processes: basic cycle, text cycle, block cycle, etc. Cyclic diagrams provide an easy way to illustrate a circular flow of money and goods of the buy, product, and sell process; or steps of iterative decision making of the marketing process.

How to insert Greek symbols very quickly

When you create a presentation for a graduate thesis or dissertation, often, you need to insert Greek letters into the slide. Mathematical symbols and Greek letters are pervasive today and used everywhere, from physics to social science. You may use the equation block for inserting those symbols, but this block will have different format settings than the rest of your text, and you will not be able to edit it in older versions of Microsoft Office.
