Presentation properties are the details about a presentation such as title, author name, subject, and keywords that identify the document’s topic or contents etc. It’s important to specify relevant values for the presentation’s Property attributes, because they help to identify the presentation. Populating the fields for various Properties also helps you search for particular slides more efficiently later.

You might have experienced this scenario: you have created a presentation within PowerPoint 2016, but you are not sure whether your client, boss, friend, or colleague, who has an earlier version of PowerPoint will be able to view and edit this presentation using the same options that you have used? And, if you save this presentation as a file compatible with an earlier version of PowerPoint, there are chances that you could lose some attributes of the presentation that are not available in previous versions. Or worse, your editable content could just change to flat, non-editable pictures!

An understanding has grown over the years to make all kinds of computer-generated content available to people with disabilities. PowerPoint is no stranger to this accessibility concept and has many options up its sleeve that help your slides be more relevant to those with accessibility impairments. PowerPoint’s built-in Accessibility Checker works similar to the spell checker. It highlights potential accessibility issues in your presentation so that you can fix these potential problems and make your content accessible to everyone.

There are various reasons why you would want to encrypt your PowerPoint file with a password. There are two password levels you can implement within a PowerPoint file: a password to open and a password to edit. However, even if you add a password to your presentation, there may come a time when you want to remove it. Or, you may want to change the password.

When you share your PowerPoint presentations with other people, you may want to protect or lock your content so that the slides may be accessed by only the people whom you permit to open the presentation. Or perhaps you have no problems with the recipients viewing slides but do not want them to be able to edit the presentation. PowerPoint 2016 provides an Encrypt with Password option to protect your presentation. However, let us ponder about why anyone would need to password-protect their PowerPoint presentations.

Using the different Slide Layouts in PowerPoint, you can create good looking slides. For example, you can use the ready-made layouts available that contain pictures or charts or you could use a separate layout for the opening slide. These layouts can be edited or duplicated/renamed within Slide Master view to create even more Slide Layouts. While duplicating and editing Slide Layouts is a great way to make small changes, it’s not the same as creating a Slide Layout from scratch. As an analogy, duplicating and editing a Slide Layout is more like using a coloring book to fill color between the lines of pre-drawn art, but creating your Slide Layout from scratch is more like starting with a blank sheet of paper and drawing your art before you start coloring between the lines.
