Hey guys! This week, we’re taking a different approach with making your PowerPoint Slides a-moo-zing. We’re going to review a PowerPoint add-in called SlideProof!
SlideProof is an all-in-one Powerpoint solution with the goal of enhancing efficiency while creating your PowerPoint decks, or your PowerPoint presentations. It was made by business professionals, for business professionals.
After playing around with the software a bit, I have to say that this one of the best PowerPoint add-ins on the market. Naturally, I thought this would be great for Slide Cow.
In any case, I’ll let you guys be the judge.
What does SlideProof do?
SlideProof has four features that it allows their users to take advantage of:
The SlideProof Library: SlideProof has implemented a fully customizable library, and let me tell you, it’s pretty great. It consists of various categories such as shapes, maps, and styles (which, by the way, are all insertable with a click of a button). The best part of this is that the library can be shared to whoever you want to share it with, whether it’s for your team, or your whole company.
The Agenda: SlideProof allows you to create an agenda, which updates automatically, for all of your PowerPoint material. The way it works is simple. The add-in makes various sections and subsections based on your content for you. The current section will be highlighted by changing the color and/or increasing the font size.
The Check Feature: This is our favorite one. With a click of a button, you will have the ability to check your slides against 80 specific rules. This includes stuff like double spaces, hyphenation, missing footnotes, mixed fonts, colors scheme, alignment, margins, bullet types, page numbers and many others.
The Productivity Feature: SlideProof expands on some of the features of PowerPoint through its productivity feature. My favorite ones are the alignment tools. In addition to what PowerPoint offers, the add-in also enables you to make elements the same height, the same width, the same size, stack vertically and stack horizontally.
To see the above features in action, check out the video.
We’ll be back on the tutorials next week. Have a good one, guys!
Note: the give away that was announced in this video has been concluded. Don’t worry, there will always be more!
