Taking PowerPoint to the Next Level with Microsoft Producer
PowerPoint is a complex, powerful program that has enough bells and whistles to satisfy most users. However, have you ever wished PowerPoint could do any of the following?
Capture, edit, and display high-quality audio and video.
Create a rich playback experience for users of web presentations, even with browsers other than Internet Explorer.
Set up presentations so that they play properly on a Mac.
Capture and synchronize narration.
All these tasks and many more are doable using Microsoft Producer, a PowerPoint add-in. You can download Producer at this site:
You can create an outline in Word and then import it into PowerPoint, where the headings are converted into outline items. For the details, see the section titled "Converting a Word Outline into a PowerPoint Presentation" in Chapter 6.
You can also use Word to create professional-looking handouts. See the section titled "Using Word to Custom Format PowerPoint Handouts" in Chapter 6.
