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

Video: Shortcut to Increase-Decrease Font Size in Word, PowerPoint, Outlook

I’m pretty sure I use this shortcut every day. When I want to increase or decrease text to a certain size that I’m not sure of, I don’t go back and forth to the ribbon or use any command that requires me to choose a size.

Here’s my favorite shortcut that I use in Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook. It’s not the one you may have been using.

 

Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday

Video: Put Commands at Your Fingertips with the Quick Access Toolbar QAT

There’s a little bar at the top of your screen in the Office software. Chances are that you’ve never paid it any attention. I use it all day.

The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) allows you to add shortcuts to commands you use often. This real quick video shows you how to customize it with commands that are there by default as well as any you choose from the ribbon.

Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday

Google Voice: (Video) How to Find Legacy Version on Desktop (Old Version, Previous Version)

If you can’t get used to the latest experience in Google Voice, you can go back to the legacy version.

In a previous (and popular video), I showed how to block anonymous  (UNKNOWN) callers on Google Voice. When the site was updated, I didn’t see a way to do this in Settings. The video below shows you how to get back to the legacy version of Google Voice on your desktop.

At this writing, the new version eventually comes back so you’ll have to do a repeat.

Microsoft Has a Free Snipping Tool to Produce Screen Captures (with video)

I’m often amazed how Microsoft seems to know just what we need, but then fails to let us know about it. In addition to the Screenshot command provided in your Office software, they’ve also provided a free Snipping Tool you can use anywhere.

In this video, I’ll show you how to find the tool on your computer and how to use it. Be sure not to miss the Delay feature!
