 In PowerPoint tips

Office 2016

Today we take a look at some of the new features in Microsoft PowerPoint 2016*

Morph transition

PowerPoint 2016 has a new transition type named Morph.  A tool that can help you make smooth animations, transitions, and object movements across the slides in your presentation. In order to use the morph transition effectively, you’ll need to have two slides with at least one object in common.  This feature is only available to Office 365 subscribers.

New chart types

We all know that visualisations are critical to effective data analysis as well as compelling storytelling. In PowerPoint 2016, there are six new charts types to select from.  These include: Box and Whisker, Treemap, Sunburst, Histogram (including Pareto), and Waterfall.

Ink equations

Math equations can be included in your presentation simply by going to Insert > Equation > Ink Equation, and if you have a touch device, you can use your finger or a touch stylus to write math equations by hand (PowerPoint will convert it to text).

Improved video resolution

When exporting your presentation as a video you can choose to create a file with resolution as high as 1920 x 1080, which is great for presentations on larger screens. This feature is also available in PowerPoint 2013.

Improved smart guides

Smart Guides no longer turn off when you insert a table, you can now use them to make sure everything (tables included) is aligned properly on your slides. This feature is also available in PowerPoint 2013.
