Crowdbeamer: Conversation with Peter Ryckaert

We first answer a question from a reader: You set an audio clip to play across slides, and then you return to the first slide by pressing the Home button, or any other way. Now the audio no longer plays automatically. Why? We then answer another question: In my deck of slides, I need to have slide numbers 1 to 8 for the first section of slides. I then need the next section to be numbered 1 to 6 for another section. Is this doable? After answering these questions, we bring you an exclusive interview with Peter Ryckaert of Crowdbeamer.

Sway users can learn about signing into Microsoft Sway, and explore how Sway differs from PowerPoint. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can explore Tiling Options in texture fills, and also learn to Add Pattern Fills to Shapes.

Change Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Each PowerPoint presentation contains several slides. Let's compare each slide to a blank canvas or an empty sheet of paper! You can thereafter add content to the slides in much the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint, or a pen to write. For example, do you want some text? Then you must add a text box. Want a picture? Just insert a picture and place it anywhere on your slide! Wait, this is not really the proper way to work in PowerPoint!
