Introduction

PowerPoint has been adding extra capabilities over the years and the last few years have been revolutionary, after the introduction of Microsoft and Office 365 options. These new options include the Morph transition, Summary and Section Zoom, Designer that adds a new look to your slides, Cloud fonts, and amazing visual assets such as icons, stock photos and more.

Yet, there is that old adage: the more you get, the more you want. People are rarely satisfied with what they get, because increased exposure results in increased needs. These needs cannot be met by Microsoft’s options alone. So, it’s good that there is a huge industry of PowerPoint extensions, called add-ins. One of the most full-featured add-ins is empower®.

In the 1970s, the average internet user saw 500 – 1,600 ads daily. By 2017, the average American saw 4000 – 10,000 ads per day. Little wonder that internet users continue to develop a disdain for digital ads and wish to find ways to make their phones completely ad-free.

Regardless of the channel you engage with, there’s no escaping ads — whether you’re playing games on your iPhone, using social media, or reading a blog post. This creates a frustrating experience for many iPhone users who would rather completely block all ads. Thankfully, Apple is one of the leading companies that allow users to reduce ads.

But iPhone settings for reducing ads can’t stop all ads, which is why we will discuss effective ways to make your iPhone completely ad-free in this post.

Are you looking for a way to move your email account from Gmail to Outlook or Yahoo to Gmail? If you are still stuck with your college email address or an email from your local ISP like Cox or BellSouth, switching to Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook is a good idea because you will get a lot more features, more security, and more support. Also, some colleges and universities eventually close student email addresses after a certain amount of time, so it is recommended to migrate before losing everything.

We already explored think-cell, an extensive graphic visualization and charting add-in for PowerPoint in our Five Best Features of think-cell post. However, did you know that think-cell adds some small niceties in PowerPoint that are not documented anywhere, and which were discovered by accident?

Get think-cell and Use These Features

Did you know that you can get a trial of think-cell and use these features? Even better, you can get an extended trial if you use this link!

Plus, on the same link, you will find a usually unavailable option to subscribe to think-cell with just one user. Normally, you need to have at least 5 users signed on to be able to subscribe to think-cell.

Yes, there are at least three extra timesaving features that think-cell adds, and all three of these features have nothing to do with charting. In fact, they relate to language settings, creating quick graphics, and replacing fonts in PowerPoint. Without further ado, let us look at these goodies that think-cell places within PowerPoint.
