Linux HowTo: Cannot find the “presenter view” check box in Office 365

Original Source Link

I am using Office 365 which is provided by my work. The license is: “Office for the web (Education)”. I want to present my powerpoint slide in a “presenter view”. When I click the “Slide Show” I do not find this checkbox. According to a Microsoft answer about a similar question, I should find a checkbox there.

Can you explain how to use “presenter view” in Office 365 web edition? Is there any solution to this problem?

The Slide Show menu only has these options:

Linux HowTo: How do I insert the current year in PowerPoint

Original Source Link

I’d like to have the current year appear on the footer of my slides.

I’ve been doing this by manually typing the year, but every year, I need to update all my slides. Can I insert the year automatically, just like I can insert the date and have it update automatically?

Try this answer. May be that will help you. Here is another similar answer.

You can get this change
system-wide through Windows Control Panel, launch “Regional and Language
Options”, click “Customize this format…”, select “Date” tab, and type out
“d.M.yy” in “Short date” area, click OK. This should get you 19.06.07 date
format in PowerPoint as well.

In your case you can try “yyyy” for your short date.

There is no easy way to format just the year in a PPT date footer.

This is a workaround. My use case is a copyright stamp in the lower right hand corner of each slide. I have one template with my house style. For new presentations, I edit the template. For existing presentations that you need to update, skip the first step.

  1. For PTT 2010, your templates are in C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingMicrosoftTemplates. ‘..Templates’ may be the word for Templates in your own language. YMMV, Microsoft tends to change its mind about the best place for these with various versions of PPT and Windows. Right click on the template and select Open. Don’t doubleclick, you’ll open a new blank document from the template. That’s not what you want.

  2. Now open the View tab and select ‘Master slides’, or Microsofts’ translation for it (‘Diamodel’ in Dutch).

  3. In the left pane, you see the master-master, slightly larger than other style masters below it. Click it.

  4. Click anywhere on the slide in the main panel, go to the Insert tab and make a nice text box with your year in it. Place it where it doesn’t sit in the way of anything else, like headers or footers. I’m not using any headers or footers, so I put mine in the lower right corner, partially overlapping with the default footer box for slide number.

  5. If you did step 1, save your template and start a new presentation from it. (File -> new -> your bewdiful template.)

Next year, remember to check back here and repeat. I hope I will. Re-invented this wheel at least three times in the last few years.

I hope it’s not too late, :). Try this:

  1. Enable “Developer” tab;
  2. Enable “Macros”;
  3. Insert “Label” at anywhere you like;
  4. Click “Visual Basic” in Developer tab, enter the visual basic
    window;
  5. Select Slide which was inserted the label;
  6. Paste the code below(change the label name “label1” when needed):

    Sub OnSlideShowPageChange()
    If ActivePresentation.SlideShowWindow.View.CurrentShowPosition = 1 Then
    Label1.AutoSize = False
    Label1.Width = 33
    Label1.Height = 14
    Dim now_year As Integer
    now_year = Year(Date)
    Label1.BackColor = &HFFFFFF
    Label1.ForeColor = &H0
    Label1.BorderColor = &HFFFFFF
    Label1.Caption = now_year
    End If
    End Sub

  7. Save and Run.

Easier than everyone is making it. Just insert date from the Insert tab on the ribbon use format with the year at the end like mm/dd/yyyy, then just highlight mm/dd/ and set font to one and font color to match your background color. mm/dd/ will disappear and the year will update per normal.

Making Game: Drawing up arrows with pen removes the arrow tip

Original Source Link

I am using a graphic tablet and I was trying to draw arrows facing upwards. Sometimes it works, but sometimes a white circle with a blue inner circle appears and the arrow tip is removed afterwards.

Since it’s a bit hard to describe, here’s an animated GIF that displays a successful arrow and a second one which is not an arrow in the end:

Animation of the issue

(The big pixel cursor seems to be a feature of ScreenPresso. It’s not what it looks like on my machine.)

Is the arrow tip recognized as a gesture or something? How do I draw arrows that remain being arrows?

This happens in Powerpoint 2016 from Office Professional Plus 2016, Powerpoint Version 2004, Build 12730.20270. I am using Windows 10 x64 1909 Build 18363.836, a Huion New 1060 Plus graphics tablet and Huion drivers 14.8.90.1126.

Linux HowTo: Slides from Word outline don’t match the slide Master

Original Source Link

I am working in Office 365 importing slides to PowerPoint from an outline in Word. I have the slide master set up with the font sizes, types, and colors I want, as well as the bullet types. When I import the slides, however, none of the slide master format appears and even when I right click on thumbnails and choose the slide format or choose my master theme and apply it to all slides.

Is there an option somewhere for formatting of slides imported from an outline?

Is there a work-around so I can change the formatting after the fact?

Thanks

This need doesn’t seem feasible.

When you import slides to PowerPoint from an outline in Word, slides will be rendered in a style that has been set in word.

You can modify their fonts and other settings in the word outline instead of master slides.

Linux HowTo: Is there any way of converting Powerpoint diagrams into Visio?

Original Source Link

Is there a way of converting a diagram in Powerpoint 2016 to Visio 2016?

I have drawn a big complex diagram in Powerpoint and feel now that it would be better to continue working on it in Visio. However I seem to only be able to paste the diagram as an image into Visio 🙁

From my experience, there is no native format that can be imported except Autocad.
The older versions circa 2000 had more options, I am currently working with Visio2013.

My solution has been to import the diagram as an image, which can then be set as a background layer, then replicate in Visio over the top and delete the image.

Though not perfect, there exists a tool that might serve you: Flowchart Converter.

The tool is not updated since 2010 so I’m not sure how it will behave with PP 2016 and V 2016. If you have problems, you could try saving PP’s to 2010 version.

I tried to go with that.
The tool requires Visio 2010 to be installed before you can continue. So, in case if you have Visio 2016 you will need to reinstall it to 2010 version first.

You may try after having copied and pasted into Visio, where your diagram appears as an image to ungroup. This works fine with MS 365 and does not require any additional application.

Linux HowTo: How do I get an event to fire when the slide changes in PowerPoint?

Original Source Link

I already know of two supposed fixes, which I will list below, along with the reason they don’t work for me.

The first is to use the SlideShowNextSlide subroutine. The problem with this is that it fires the event before the transition, so I have no way of knowing which slide is being transitioned to. I want the event to fire upon entering certain slides during a presentation, not leaving certain slides. I can’t simply add one to the CurrentShowPosition field because I’m not necessarily advancing to the next slide; I might click a hyperlink. In short, I want to only fire the events upon some transitions from the current slide, but with SlideShowNextSlide I have no way of knowing if I am moving to the right slide to fire the event.

The second is to use the OnSlideShowPageChange subroutine. The problem with this is that, since I have already saved, closed and reopened my PowerPoint slide show once, PowerPoint simply decides to ignore the code in the subroutine.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what I can do? Maybe a way to fix one of the aforementioned problems? I’m using PowerPoint 2013 on Windows 8.1.

Here’s the code I want to use:

Private Sub EventHandler_SlideShowNextSlide(ByVal SSW As SlideShowWindow)
' The purpose here is to stop music playing in the background, which happens on certain slides.
' For my purposes, it's not enough to simply state how many slides to play the music over,
' because some slides that need the music stopped can occur before slides that need it playing.
Dim Change As Boolean
If SSW.View.CurrentShowPosition < 66 And ((SSW.View.CurrentShowPosition < 42 And SSW.View.CurrentShowPosition > 25) Or SSW.View.CurrentShowPosition Mod 2 = 0) _
Then
    ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes("music file.mp3").Delete
    Change = True
End If
If Change Then Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso "Undo"
End Sub

Dim CS As Slide
Set CS = ActivePresentation.SlideShowWindow.View.Slide

If CS.SlideIndex < 66 And CS.SlideIndex > 25 Then
'''
End If

I try to verify if I am in the required slide via SlideIndex and then run an If Condition
