MS Office: Pin items

Many companies, my employer included, uses spreadsheets on a more or less consistent basis in order to track such things as vacation planning and KPI reporting. For me, as an employee, keeping track of these spreadsheets can, from time to time, be a bit annoying. Much to my surprise, at some point in the past few years, Microsoft added a pin item feature to MS Office.

FotoWare FotoWeb Desktop Tips & Tricks

The FotoWeb Office Plugin supports placing of multiple placeholder boxes in PowerPoint

When creating a layout in Powerpoint, pay attention to the sequence in which you place placeholders. The Office Plugin will place images in picture placeholders first, in the order they were placed in the document.
Second, it will place images in Content placeholders, again, in the order they were placed in the document. Naturally, if you select a placeholder in the layout, the first image you select will be placed into it.
To place multiple images in the presentation, double-click each image you want to insert, in the order you want them inserted. When placing an image in a Picture placeholder, the image will be centred and adapted to the placeholder’s width.
When placing an image in a Content placeholder, the whole image will be visible, and the height and width of the placeholder will be adjusted to fit the image and its proportions.
