You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know how popular and powerful Photoshop is. This tool is used by almost everyone—amateurs and professionals alike—in editing photos and for creating all sorts of digital arts. It also provides unlimited opportunities for users to play around with their photos, allowing them to showcase their creativity and skills at the same time. However, when you’re still a newbie in using Photoshop, you might be clueless about how you can utilize it better. This program can become too complicated, especially if you don’t have any experience or knowledge in using it.

Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise ContentThis post is the first part of a set of serialized posts, based on original content, the Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise Content book, authored by AlexAnndra Ontra and James Ontra.

With their consent, it was decided to make this post series explore the same concept with a larger perspective, while still retaining the original content. This will help us enlarge and enhance the scope, and reach a larger audience. At the same time, the content will be divided into smaller posts, that you can read one at a time. As far as possible, each post will be individually self-contained. We will also take advantage of the blog post medium to make this content more colorful, detailed, and interactive.

Here’s a question I received today: In my deck of slides, I need to have slide numbers 1 to 8 for the first section of slides. I then need the next section to be numbered 1 to 6 for another section. Is this doable?

The short answer is that this is not doable, at least not so at the time of writing this post. Hopefully, this feature will be added in a future release.

The long answer is that there is a workaround for those who want this feature at all costs. Remember, this is a workaround, and not a solution! Follow these steps to understand better:

PowerPoint’s 3D experiences get more enhanced all the time. To begin with, the only way you could animate 3D models was by using the Morph transition effect. Next, you could use the 3D animations. But now, with the new embedded 3D animations feature, you no longer even need to animate, because these new 3D models are already pre-animated!

Why Don’t I See The Embedded 3D Animations Feature?

You must be using an Office 365 subscriber version of PowerPoint to access this feature. Also, new features such as this one percolate to all installations of Office 365 in a phased manner. Insider and Monthly Channel versions get these features first, followed by most other users. If you work in a large organization, your system administrator may prevent these updated features from being installed, even if you use an Office 365 subscription version.
