Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Options for animating tables, part of Data-Driven Presentations with Excel and PowerPoint 2016.
- [Instructor] Finally let's look at some tricks…for animating tables.…If all you want to do is show a table,…there's really no need to animate it.…If I'd like to have this table stand out more…on the screen, it's possible that I'd like…to remove this object.…I can right-click, Format the Background,…and choose to hide background graphics.…That gives me a little more space…to stretch out my table without interfering…with the objects that are on the slide.…
It's a great presentation of tabular data.…The problem comes in when the data that I have…is really bigger than or oriented differently than…our horizontal presentation here in PowerPoint.…When the data, like this, doesn't really fit the screen.…For example here I have a large table,…and it all fits on the slide, it was automatically…shrunk to fit, but I'd like to be able to read it,…and when we display this even on a fairly large screen…that's not quite how I'd like to be able to see it.…
Let's make this larger.…It's an image, so I can make it look good at any size.…
