2 new portfolios on PowerPoint Heaven
Tue, Nov 7 2006 12:07
I have recently added 2 new portfolios on PowerPoint Heaven.
The two new portfolios are:
1) Portfolio PowerPoint 2007
Screenshots are previously shown on the blog: http://msmvps.com/blogs/tohlz/archive/2006/10/03/Nice-OfficeArt-effect-with-PowerPoint-2007.aspx
This is a sample featuring two slides, Before and After. 'Before' will show you a dull looking diagram, while 'After' will show you a diagram enhanced using Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 OfficeArt effect. OfficeArt in PowerPoint 2007 sure creates cool impact, especially when you combine it with animations.

2) Staff And Students Games 2006
To start this presentation, click on the Staff and Students Games logo. This sample contains a Slide Selector feature created using invisible triggers. Clicking the Forward or Rewind button will display the next set of links. Clicking the Hide button allows the Slide Selector to be hidden.

To download the portfolios, visit PowerPoint Heaven at http://pptheaven.mvps.org.
