Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
To help you follow along on your own computer, I've saved my work for each chapter and video. If you're a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you'll have access to the files used throughout the title. Here on my desktop you'll see my exercise files folder and inside, one folder for each chapter of the course. For example, in Chapter 07, Video 01, we'll be working with this file here.
Note that all of the exercise files are meant to work with PowerPoint 2010 and should work fairly well in PowerPoint 2007. If you're using a different version, some files may not work properly. If you're a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. But if you have the exercise files I suggest you download them onto your computer and place them on your desktop for easy access. Let's get started!
