Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing a PowerPoint file, part of Camtasia Studio 8 Essential Training.
The Camtasia Studio PowerPoint add-in will record pretty much any PowerPoint…presentation, but we can greatly improve the overall quality of our finished…recording by paying attention to a couple of key settings.…Let's begin inside of our EC_PowerPoint file by going over to slide 2, and let's…apply some of these settings.…And the first is to make sure that we're using a nice sans serif font.…A great choice for our fonts is to go ahead and use the font face Arial.…To do this, we'll go ahead and first click one time on our slide heading, and…then triple-click in order to select all of the text.…
Now, you can either access the pop-up window right here to change the font by…clicking the dropdown menu, and choosing a different font, or you can come up…here to the Home ribbon, and click the dropdown menu for the Font, and find the…font that you want to use.…In this case, we'll scroll up to the top, and select the font face Arial.…We'll do the same thing for our bulleted text.…Again, we'll click one time on the text to select the box, and then triple-click…
