In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to use the built-in Designer tool to create great looking slides without having any PowerPoint knowledge. The built-in tool can create and work with existing design elements on the slide.
- [Jess] My name is Jess Stratton…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…If you are an Office 365 subscriber…currently using PowerPoint Online,…or PowerPoint 2016 for Windows or Mac…you can use a fantastic tool called Designer.…Designer helps you create great looking slides…even if you don't feel like you have that creative edge.…It does the work for you.…It can also perform miracles when you…get handed a presentation that's less…than attractive or hard to work with.…Let's look at this presentation I've inherited.…I need to make this look modern and usable…without doing anything on my own.…
I'm going to see what Designer can come up with for me.…I've got the slide I want to change selected.…Change to the Design tab and all the way…to the right click Design Ideas.…If you don't see this option,…you might not be an Office 365 subscriber.…If you know you do subscribe and you don't see it,…you probably need an update.…You can force an update by clicking…File on the left hand side, clicking Account,…click Update Options, and then click Update Now.…
