Thank you for all who have attended the Microsoft PowerPoint Techniques online live workshop, and here are the questions and answers from the workshop:
Question: Can I convert the PowerPoint presentation content to a Word document?
Yes, you can convert a PowerPoint presentation content to a Word document. You do so by following these steps:
- From the File menu, select Send To
- Then from the popup menu, select Microsoft Office Word
- When the following window opens, select the desired page layout and then click ok, and in a few seconds, your Word document gets generated:
<< insert picgture >>
Question: Does the "automatic date update" on the Footer update on opening or only once modified?
The automatic date update on the Footer updates the date when the presentation is opened, not just when it is modified.
Question: How do you turn on the track changes feature in Microsoft PowerPoint for individual use rather than sending to another user?
To track your changes in PowerPoint, use the save as to save the presentation under a new name, and then when you want to view your changes, use the Compare and Merge Presentations from the Tools menu to compare the two presentations. You will be warned that this presentation did not originate using the Sent To option, but you can press Continue to see the changes.
Question: When you send the PowerPoint presentation to someone else for review, does the reviewer need to save the powerpoint or simply open from the e-mail and reply?
The reviewer does not need to save the presentation. The reviewer can simply make their changes, and then press the Reply with Changes button on the Reviewing toolbar to send their changes back to the original author.
Question: Can you change the rest of the slides in a PowerPoint presentation so they have a different color from the Title page?
Yes, you can change the slides individually. For instance, to apply a specific design only to one (or selected slides), you select that slide, and then in the Task Pane (which you can open with Ctrl + F1), select Slide Design, and then when you identify the desired design, hover the mouse pointer over it so that the arrow down gets displayed on the right side, and then click the arrow down and select the Apply to Selected Slides option.
Question: If I delete a slide after creating the agenda slide in a PowerPoint presentation (using the Summary Slide feature in the Outlining toolbar), does the agenda has to be manually updated?
Unfortunately, the answer is yes. The Summary Slide is not kept up-to-date. It is only used to generate the slide in the first place.
Question: Can I send an electronic version of a custom "show" that I create in PowerPoint presentation?
You can send an electronic version by sending the presentation. The custom shows are part of the presentation, and will be embedded in it.
