“Design Ideas”: A game-changer feature in PowerPoint


PowerPoint has a little known feature called Design Ideas. At least i wasn’t aware of until recently.

This feature in the newest version of PowerPoint comes up whenever your add/update any content on a slide. If it doesn’t come by itself, click on the View menu and select Design Ideas from there.

It uses the words on your slide to automatically and intelligently suggest

1. Colours, shapes and patterns

2. Icons and smart objects

3. Background images

4. Fonts, arrangement and positioning

It’s like having a professional designer sitting by your side and offering 8-10 choices for each slide.

With the right choices, you’ll have a visually stunning presentation with very little effort and design skill.

Give it a shot and tell me what you think about it.
