pptPlex Gives PowerPoint a Boost
Microsoft PowerPoint is known as one of the go-to presentation applications, yet it does have its share of limitations when it comes to having a presentation that’s not just a long series of slides; in fact, that’s your only option.
pptPlex opens up more possibilities by giving you the chance to divide the presentation into sections and zoom in/outs of slides one at a time, allowing to zip through slides in a more interesting manner. You will find that PowerPoint displays your slide as a canvas of pictures when you click the “From Overview” button. The fun thing about the canvas is that we can zoom to each picture and bounce around to each picture as you progress with your presentation.
The rather experimental add-on runs on every version office, including the 2016 version, and works its magic by using PowerPoint’s ability to divide presentations into sections in order to create a canvas that includes all of the slides in an attractive one-piece presentation.
Creating a PowerPoint slides with pptPlex can be quite different than your usual PowerPoint slides. One thing to remember is that you can’t use your normal animations (fade in, fade out,etc) when you are creating a Pptplex presentation: the canvas itself determines the flow and the look and feel for your entire presentation
pptPlex gives you the option to create a custom background for the ‘brief’ view, allowing to add your own style to the presentation. This is ideal for timeline presentations. If you wish, you can even leave the background blank.
After selecting your background, insert your slides and see how pptPlex works by having an overview of the slideshow, before inspecting each of the slides one by one. There is also a feature for automatic zoom-in on specific words and charts during your presentation.
pptPlex users can also share their custom canvases with each other, adding hundreds of possibilities for your next slide show.
