2. The images in the album can be selected from the image file on the disk (click on the "File/Disk" button), as well as from external devices such as scanners and digital cameras (click on the "Scanner/Camera" button).

Clicking on the drop-down list to the right of "Frame Shape" can specify the shape of the frame for each image in the album, but the function must be effective when the "Fit to Slide Size" option is not used in "Picture Layout". Assuming we can choose "Rounded Rectangle", which requires professional imaging tools to achieve the desired effect. Finally, you can specify a suitable template for the slide and click the [Browse] button on the right side of the "Design Mode" box to make the corresponding settings.

PPT, execute the "Tools>Compare and Merge Presentations" command, select other presentations to compare in the pop-up dialog box, such as VPN product introduction (modified). PPT, and click the "Merge" button. Subsequently, a prompt box often pops up stating that one or more presentations were not sent using the 'Mail Recipient (Review)' command on the 'File' menu. Simply click the 'Continue' button here.

Set up programs

Users can open any other program during the slide show, such as Microsoft Excel or Internet Explorer. And the program is opened outside of Microsoft Office PowerPoint and will not be embedded in the presentation. The specific method is:

Firstly, in the slide show, select the text or object used to open the program and execute the 'Action Settings' command from the' Slide Show 'menu.

If the user wants to open the program by clicking on the selected object during the slide show, please use the "Click Mouse" tab; If you want to open the program when the mouse moves over an object, click the 'Mouse Over' tab. Click 'Run Program' and then type the path or click 'Browse' to find the program you want to open. After completing, click 'OK' to close the dialog box.

Make symbols

Firstly, please ask the user to select the text or list to add image bullets to. Click on "Format>Bullets and Numbering", and in the "Bulleted Items" tab, click "Image" to bring up the Clip Manager, where users can select image bullets. In the Picture Bullets dialog box, click a picture, and then click OK.

Tip: To add your own picture to this dialog box, click 'Import', select the desired file, and then click 'Add'. If the user does not have Clip Organizer installed on their computer, clicking on "Picture" in the "Bullets and Numbering" dialog box will display the "Insert Picture" dialog box. The user only needs to select the desired picture.


Using the motherboard

Using a master can define some common features that each slide has. These features include: the position and format of the text, background pattern, whether to display page numbers, footers, and dates on each slide, etc.

Picture Movement

Open the "Custom Animation" option under the "Slide Show" menu, and the "Custom Animation" task window will appear on the right side of the screen (as shown in Figure 1). The entire animation setup process can be completed in this window. If the "Auto Preview" option at the bottom of the window is selected, any added animation effects can be previewed in real-time in the editing area.


Animation Control

For animation methods, PowerPoint 2003 not only provides "mouse click" and "after (starting from the previous item)" control functions, but also adds two new features to control animation: "before (starting from the previous item)" and "trigger animation". By using the "before" animation method, multiple objects can be animated simultaneously in one slide, and the start time of different object animations can be set independently.

Trigger animation can set any object in the screen as a trigger. By clicking on it, all objects under the trigger can start moving according to the preset animation effect, and the set trigger can be reused multiple times. By using this animation method, you can create effects similar to using buttons to control animation in software such as Authorware and Flash (using "action buttons" as triggers).


In PowerPoint 97/2000, the time or speed of the object animation process is default and cannot be preset, while in 2003, this feature is impeccable and can be completely comparable to Authorware's animation time control. It has various options such as "very slow (6 seconds)", "slow (3 seconds)", "medium speed (2 seconds)", "fast (1 second)", and "very fast (0.5 seconds)" (as shown in Figure 3). If you still feel that it is not enough, you can directly enter the required time in the "Speed" column, which can be a few hours or at least 0.01 seconds.

PowerPoint2003 not only made significant improvements in animation functionality, but also made significant progress in other areas, such as increasing the capacity of clip art while automatically searching for images, sounds, and videos on the entire hard drive; Allow each slide to use a different template; Expanded the slide switching effect and the minimum switching time interval can be 0.1 seconds, etc.




Table Insertion

Introduce the methods and techniques of inserting charts in the form of animations; By using charts, it is possible to more intuitively demonstrate the changes in data.

1. Execute the "Insert Chart" command to enter the chart editing status.

2. Edit the corresponding data content in the data table, and then click the mouse in the blank space of the slide to exit the chart editing status.

3. Adjust the size of the chart and position it in the appropriate position.

Note: If there is an error in the data, double-click the chart directly to enter the chart editing status again and make modifications.

Convert Document

The presentation produced contains a large amount of text that has already been entered in Word and can be directly called in two ways:

Before using the following two calling methods, you need to set the text in Word: set the text that needs to be converted to styles such as "Title 1. Title 2. Title 3...", save and return.



Automatic slide switching; In PowerPoint, you can set a corresponding time for each slide to automatically switch after reaching the predetermined time without manually clicking on the switch: first select the slide in the normal view, then select "Slide Show" → "Slide Switch", under "Slide Change Method", select the "Every" check box, and then enter the number of seconds to display the slide on the screen.
