Overview

This is the only book that will help an intermediate PowerPoint user improve their skills to an advanced level. In doing so, they can benefit both professionally and personally. This is not a comprehensive book that will bore you with every detail of PowerPoint, but a guide to specific actions you can take to create the ultimate presentation. The book covers the powerful formatting engine new to PowerPoint 2007, and how it can be used for applying soft shadows, reflection, and glows to make a presentation look attractive. It also covers PowerPoint's new 3D engine. The book goes into deep technical detail about the Office 2007 theme engine and how color schemes, effect schemes, and font schemes work; as well as the new PowerPoint XML file format, showing you how to edit PowerPoint files without using PowerPoint at all. The authors walk through programming a macro and explain how to format shapes, diagrams, charts, text, tables with gradient and picture fills and different kinds of lines (e.g. a beveled compound line with a diamond arrowhead). Also covered are those all important slide show shortcuts that few people know about like — seeing your private notes while presenting on a projector, starting the slide show from the current slide without fumbling through the user interface, and how to black out the slide show screen with one key press.

Meet the Author

Wayne Kao joined Microsoft in January 2003,working as a developer on the PowerPoint team. He developed PowerPoint 2007 features such as the pretty, new effects and the new XML file formats; improved the undo, setup, placeholder, and Photo Album features; and worked to integrate SmartArt, chart, table, and picture improvements into PowerPoint 2007. Wayne also contributed to PowerPoint and Office Picture Manager 2003.

Jeff Huang is currently working as a developer for Microsoft on his second release of PowerPoint. He has learned the ins and outs of the product by implementing features and exposing himself to the inner workings of PowerPoint. Each day that he spends working with the talented people who make PowerPoint, he picks up an obscure new trick or shortcut. Jeff hopes to empower you to create better presentations not only by making PowerPoint a better product, but also by helping you become an expert PowerPoint user. He wants you to be the person who does something new, cool, and unusual in PowerPoint, the person who makes others exclaim, “Wow! I didn’t know you could do that!”

When not writing books about PowerPoint, Jeff can be found skiing, playing golf, or playing with his dog, Pouncer.
