Beyond being just a program to create slides, PowerPoint is also a great illustration program with tools and options that rival top end graphic programs. There has always been the ability to create shapes from scratch such as circles, rectangles, triangles, hearts, smileys, etc. Additionally, you can find Line options within the Shapes gallery. The following introductory tutorials show you how to draw a simple line; please choose a version from the listing below:

Windows:

Drawing Lines in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Drawing Lines in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

Drawing Line in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

Mac:

It’s been observed that most of the time, users may remove an animation and apply another one rather than changing one animation into another. This may be because in PowerPoint there is no particular option within the interface that changes the animation. But there is still a very easy one-click operation to change an existing animation to another one, as you will learn in the following tutorials.

Windows:

Change an Animation in PowerPoint 2013

Change an Animation in PowerPoint 2010

Changing an Animation in PowerPoint 2002, 2003, and 2007

Mac:

Removing an animation in PowerPoint is a simple select-and-click option, but even before you remove any animations, do ascertain why you want to remove them. If the animation is there for a particular reason, you may want to look at other options first, as explained below.

  • Do you want to remove the animated object altogether? In that case, you can select the object and delete it. Do be careful about deleting though since you may not be able to get your deleted object back!
  • Or do you want to apply another animation, or even change the existing movement?
  • Finally, do you want to remove the animation from the slide object, and leave that object on the slide without any movement? If that’s what you want, explore the process in the following tutorials, depending upon which version of PowerPoint you are using.

If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use:

Microsoft Windows

Removing an Animation in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Removing an Animation in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

Removing an Animation in PowerPoint 2002, 2003, and 2007 for Windows

Apple Mac OS X

Removing an Animation in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac

Tip: Do you want to remove all animations from your slides? Is there a magic button somewhere in PowerPoint that can get rid of all animations all together? Yes, you can do this easily in PowerPoint using some simple VBA code, says John Wilson — read more.

Often, you might want to convert your PowerPoint slides, handouts, or notes to a PDF that can be distributed. The biggest advantage of creating a PDF is that it can be viewed on any platform: Windows, Mac, or Linux — and it can also be password protected. Additionally, fonts can be embedded too. There are some disadvantages too because animations and transitions are not normally supported.

Most versions of PowerPoint now include built-in conversion to Adobe’s Portable Document Format. Explore more in the following tutorials:

Once you place a Shape on a PowerPoint slide, you may format it by changing its fill or outline — or you may add animation to it. Later if you realize that you used a wrong form — maybe you used a Star in place of a Triangle, you may be tempted to delete the original Shape altogether and start from scratch by adding a new one, and change its fill and add animation to it. Fortunately, you can replace shapes in PowerPoint. Explore more in the following tutorials.

Do you have a fancy font used in your slides that won’t show up on other computers? You can convert any such PowerPoint text to shapes!

There are two methods of converting textual content into forms in PowerPoint. One is the Intersect method, in which the entire text is converted into a single shape — think of each paragraph or multiple paragraphs as a separate shape. And the other method is Fragment which results into converting the textual content to multiple individual shapes — think of each alphabet as a separate shape. Explore more in the following tutorials.

Did you know that PowerPoint allows you to embed fonts in your presentations? OK, this actually may not work most of the time because of some limitations–and you must be aware of these limitations. On the other hand, when this option does work, it can be very beneficial.

Here are some tutorials and other content on Indezine related to embedding fonts:

March 16, 2016 — Presentation Font Embedder: Conversation with Ari Leviatan

September 6, 2004 — This presentation cannot be edited because it contains a read-only embedded font
