With these 5 PPT god operations

When making PPT, the logic and content of PPT are enough to cause headaches, but the production itself is often not a pleasant thing.

In fact, it's not because of your incompetence, but because you didn't choose the right tools and spent too long on some basic operations.

Let's start with a small quiz: from 1 to 5, how would you add it?

Is it 1+1+1+1+1=5, or 1+4=5?

I believe that you will choose the latter, because the latter can achieve the same purpose faster. The +4 is our tool to improve computational efficiency.

Doing PPT is also, to achieve the same purpose, there are often more efficient ways. For example, I want to unify the size of these two rectangles, the traditional method is to do this——

This is the effect of 1+1+1+1+1=5. But if you use the design tools in our iSlide, you can achieve the effect of 1+4=5 ↓

The former took 9 seconds, with iSlide it only took 3 seconds.

So, Xiao Ai's goal today is to teach you how to use several super practical function keys in the iSlide design tool efficiently.

01 equal size

First find the location of this function key -

What is its principle? I draw a rectangle, select it, and I can see outlines like this around it -

In PPT, such contour lines describe the shape size. Using the function keys of equal size is actually to unify the shape according to the outline.

I draw another circle on top of the rectangle and check to make the outlines visible -

What happens if I now want to unify the circle to the size of the rectangle?

We can observe that the circle becomes an ellipse because: Uniform size is based on outline, not shape.

After knowing the principle, let's take a look at a very practical scene: we will make a photo wall, and put all the photos in the PPT like this -

Intensive phobia don't panic! It's time to play our big and small features!

First determine the size of a picture -

Then use the equal size tool to make all other images the same size as it (note: to select the image of our target size at the end)

With a little typesetting, we can make a page of the photo wall page we want-

02 Text vectorization

One of the features of my head-to-head Amway! Many of the previous high-end covers were made with this function. But before introducing its practical scenario, let's take a look at the principle -

In PPT, if you want to change the size of the text, there is only one way, that is to change the font size.

However, the relationship between font size and size is not particularly intuitive. Just like a 200-square-meter house, we will feel that the area is very large when we hear it, but it may be impossible to tell how big it is.

In PPT, our shapes are resized like this -

Shapes like this "point where to hit" are called vector graphics. "Text vectorization" means that the text is converted into vector graphics, and it can be dragged and placed anywhere.

In this location-

After selecting the text box and clicking this button, you can free yourself to your heart's content——

caution! Once text is vectorized, it cannot be edited. To use this feature, make sure the text is fully finalized.

How to use it? Here's a look at how it's used: here's an almost finished cover page -

The background is a bit empty at the moment, we can consider putting English behind the title as decoration.

After entering "REPORT", the vector operation is performed and placed on the bottom layer.

Then we can freely drag and drop English to the size we want.

Compared with adjusting the font size slowly, is it very convenient, and it can be done in one step~

Finally adjust the transparency, and a cover page is complete.

03 position swap

This function key can be said to be my favorite. It's in this location-

When we put the mouse up, the description of the function will also appear.

What does that mean?

For example, there is a rectangle and a circle of different sizes in the picture:

If we select Press the left button at the same time, this is -

This is the "forced swap shape" effect.

That is to say, under the condition that the size of the outline remains unchanged, the things in the outline are replaced.

Let's take a look at the effect of the right button:

This time, although the two graphics have exchanged positions, they retain their original size. This is the "swap shape center position" effect, just swapping the positions.

For example: When making content pages, we usually make a container first.

Then copy the other two -

Then we need to replace the icons in the two containers on the right.

If it is the traditional method, you need to change the size, and slowly correct the position... Listening to it is very persuasive...

Let's see how our design tools do it all in one step -

It's very convenient, just modify the text and delete the redundant parts, and you can complete this page.

If the three functions just now are the three "big meals" I want to recommend to you, then I will give you two "desserts" next.

04 Select tab

Old rules, first find the location of this tab -

Focus on these four

The function of these four keys is to adjust the layer order. The traditional layer adjustment method to move down one layer is like this -

It took a total of 4 steps: select → right click → right arrow on the bottom layer → move down one layer

What about using the select tab?

It took a total of 2 steps: select → click the function key of the design tool

In one operation, 2 steps are reduced. If doing a PPT can save the operation, I don’t need to say more.

05 Alignment Tab

iSlide's Alignment Tab is YYDS in my heart! I believe everyone can understand the pain of repeatedly adjusting and revising the alignment after doing PPT, especially for obsessive-compulsive disorder, this process is long and tortured.

But with the alignment tools, I really didn't bother with those details anymore.

It's here-

This tab is actually all our "old friends", the various alignment tools.

Generally, we need to align two elements, which takes at least 6 seconds.

But with the alignment tab, it only took 3 seconds.

Quick, accurate, ruthless!

The accumulated time savings may be enough to make another PPT.

In fact, the essence of the iSlide design tool is to speed up some of the things that PPT can already do.

That is to use the power of plug-ins as much as possible to reduce those tedious steps and repetitive work, help us, without adding meaningless classes, and spend time on the presentation of PPT logic and content polishing, rather than on some Details that should be solved by technology.

It's not enough to read the article once, you can become your own skill by practicing it once. Hurry up and open the PPT to try the little knowledge mentioned today!
