VIDEO: Embed Downloaded Fonts Into a Document You Share or Show on Different Computers

In a previous video, I showed you how to find and install fonts on your computer. If you use these installed fonts in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, etc., you’ll want to embed them when you save. This is especially important if you’re sharing a document or you’re presenting on a different computer, and those fonts may or may not be installed.

If you create a template to base future documents on, click to embed fonts in it so you don’t have to remember to do this every time.

embed fontsThis video shows you how to embed fonts into your documents: True Type Fonts (TTF), created by Apple decades ago; and Open Type Fonts (OTF), more robust fonts created by Adobe and Microsoft.

NOTE: After I installed all the fonts, I moved the files into a separate INSTALLED folder. This way, as I download more, I’ll only deal with the new ones.

PEACE.

VIDEO: How to Find and Install Fonts to Your PC – Windows 10/8/7

I wanted to add a lot more creative fonts to my computer. DaFont.com has it all. In this video, I’ll show you how to search, download, relocate to a folder outside of your default Downloads folders, extract all files, and finally, install.

If Used, Embed

If you use these installed fonts in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, etc., be sure to embed them when you save. This is especially important if you’re sharing a document or you’re presenting on a different computer and those fonts aren’t installed. When you save your file, be sure to tick the box to Embed fonts (this video shows you how).

NOTE: If you create a template to base future documents on, click to embed fonts in it so you don’t have to remember to do this every time.

WordMark.it

Here is a cool Website I found that allows you to type a word or phrase in a text box to see what it’ll look like in all the fonts on your computer. WordMark.it

Wikipedia Font List

In addition to seeing how fonts on your computer look inside your Office document, you can see them on this Wikipedia list.

Video: Use PowerPoint to Design YouTube End Screen Template (Lots of PowerPoint Tips Inside)

Use PowerPoint to Create YouTube End Screen TemplateI use PowerPoint for just about everything I need graphic-wise. I go way beyond just slides. YouTube introduced End Screens in 2016, and YouTubers can add these thumbnails to the last 5-20 seconds of their videos. They can be set up to point to your other videos, other channels, subscription link, your Website, and more.

I created my End Screen template because the thumbnails would set on top of my tips video and hide some of the information. This slide-turned-video leaves space for the video links that YouTube adds.

PowerPoint Tips You’ll Learn

Watch this video whether you have a YouTube channel or not because you’ll learn lots of PowerPoint tips. Here are some of them:

  • Resize a slide.
  • Format slide background with gradient fill.
  • Frame a slide with a rectangle shape.
  • Align objects horizontally and vertically.
  • Create more guides and also how to remove them.
  • Animate objects to appear automatically at the right time.
  • Use the Shape Tool to totally transform a shape.
  • Rotate objects.
  • Select multiple objects with your mouse.
  • And probably more that I forgot. Just watch!

Here’s My Video

And here’s my video on how I used PowerPoint to create my End Screen template (related videos are below also).

(Video) How to Export a PowerPoint Presentation to Video

If you add animation to one or more slides, or timed transitions between them, you can save the presentation as a high resolution video that is sized for the big screen. This video shows you how to export a slide that’s already created, not how to create the slide and add animations (I’ll create a different video for that).

Note: I recorded this video in PowerPoint 2013, and although the output provides the option for 1080p resolution, native PowerPoint would only output to 720p. UPDATE: I’ve found an Add-In from a PowerPoint expert that outputs to 1080p. http://skp.mvps.org/videotools.htm

 

Let me know what you think about this video. How can I improve my videos?

VIDEO: How to Type International Characters in Office Software Using AutoCorrect to Do It Automatically

You can create text with accented characters once and after that, your Microsoft Office software will change it automatically using AutoCorrect (I tried this in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote).

In this video, I changed the English “e” to an accented one. (Microsoft has a list of what to type to get other characters at the link below the video.)

 

Check out this link to more shortcuts for typing various international characters on the Microsoft Support site. And here’s a similar article on inserting symbols.

Videos: Find the Perfect Color Match for Text and Graphics (PowerPoint’s Eyedropper and Microsoft Paint)

If you’ve ever tried to match the colors in a picture to coincide with your presentation, etc., PowerPoint 2013 has the Eyedropper tool that makes this easy. If you have an older version of PowerPoint, you can accomplish the same thing using Microsoft Paint (free software that comes with Windows).

The colors displayed on your computer are designated as RGB. That’s short for the first letters in the colors red, green, and blue that are combined in various percentages to produce other colors.

EYEDROPPER. PowerPoint 2013+ has the Eyedropper command. It’s easy to find an exact match in an image that’s on your slide. In the video, I’m creating a custom color pulled from a graphic that I’ll apply to some text.

MICROSOFT PAINT. I’m redesigning a PowerPoint presentation and wanted to match the slide colors to the ones on my book cover. Microsoft Paint comes with Windows, and its Color Picker tool makes it easy to color match. I’ve included how to find Paint on your computer.

I’ve posted two real quick how-to videos on both methods below.

For PowerPoint 2013 and Above

Video: How to Add a Picture Inside Text Using PowerPoint and WordArt

I use PowerPoint for most of my graphics, including the ones I use for videos, event flyers, postcards, my Linkedin profile header, and more. If you can see it, you can create it in PowerPoint. (A link to samples is below the video.)

In this example, it’s easy to add design elements to words using PowerPoint and WordArt.

 

Here’s a real quick video to show you how I did this. I’m using PowerPoint 2013, and this has worked the same in other versions.

P.S. In another video, I show you how to save your WordArt graphic as a picture while on the slide, crop it, then save outside of PowerPoint so you can use it anywhere. Click here to watch that video after you’ve learned from this one.

For more ideas on using PowerPoint for design projects, check out this slideshow video.

(Video) Use PowerPoint to Remove Background from Pictures and Merge with Other

When I can’t find that perfect image, I’ll knock out the background of one and merge it with the other.

I was looking for a picture of a woman in bed with her laptop and couldn’t find what I wanted. I found a woman sitting outside with her laptop, and I found an empty bed. Here’s how I knocked out the background of one and combined the two pictures.
