  • Select the type of alignment you want. The beauty of this tool is that your images will now be precisely lined up in a way you’re unlikely to replicate just by eyeballing their position.

Zoom in on a slide

Sometimes you might have charts, graphs, or tables that are difficult to read or interpret. A good remedy is to zoom in on the slide for your viewers so they can get a better look.

  • Head into Presenter View and note the magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the screen.
