Graphical guidelines for creating PowerPoint publications

Follow

There are a couple of recommendations we have for you, to make sure that you get the best results on your tablet with the created PowerPoint publications.

 

1. Slide Size

We recommend to use the 4:3 slide size and then to 'Maximize' your scaling. You can do this by opening the 'Design' menu > 'Slide Size' > 'Standard (4:3)'

In the pop-up that appears, click 'Maximize' for the scaling of your content.

When you're creating a PowerPoint presentation from full screen images that you have designed in a graphical program, such as InDesign or Photoshop, make sure to follow the steps of this support article.


2. Formats of content

2.1. Text

We strongly recommend to provide the slides with separate text and not to include them in the graphics. This way, you can easily manage the text from within the PowerPoint.

2.2. Videos

All video files are supported in our plugin.

However to respect the file size maximum of 120 MB, we advise to reduce video sizes to meet the requirements of mobile devices. We recommend the free tool Handbrake to convert large videos to the MP4 format - optimized for tablets.

2.3. Images

All image files are supported in our plugin, but again: make sure you don't exceed the file size maximum due to the use of too large images.

To insert full screen images, make sure you have the right size.
For iOS the 12.9 inch model has a 2732-by-2048 Retina Display at 264 pixels per inch,
and the 9.7 inch model has a 2048-by-1536 Retina Display at 264 pixels per inch.

2.4. Animations

Although we do not advise too much animation since it mostly distracts during sales meetings, we do support several of them.



3. iPad links

When making a presentation for iPad, make sure not to create a link on top of your slide that is smaller than 20 px. The top bar on the device - containing date, hour, internet connection, battery status - can be invisible but will still lay above the publication, making it impossible to click on a link if it is not larger than this bar.
