Slide Zoom. Direct your audience’s attention right to your point. Zoom in on a diagram, chart, or graphic with a couple of clicks, and zoom out just as smoothly.
Slide Navigator. Quickly switch slides—in or out of sequence—from a visual grid viewable at a glance. While in Presenter View, your audience sees only the slide you’ve selected.
Alignment Guides. Add a designer’s touch. Intuitively align shapes, text boxes, videos on your slides.
Merge Shapes. Create your own shapes and customized icons with the Union, Combine, Fragment, Intersect, and Subtract tools.
Simplified Sharing. Share work with confidence. Your presentations are saved online on OneDrive or SharePoint by default.**
Reply Comment. Keep track of the conversation. Place and reply comments right next to the slide area you’re discussing, so everyone can readily see who replied to whom, and when.
