Now for today's tutorial.

I have several more tutorials planned, but I would LOVE to know what you would like to see as a tutorial.  I want these to be as beneficial as possible for everyone!

Please leave me a comment if you have a suggestion for me. :)

Also....I'll be breaking the rules again by posting a second time today, but I think you'll be glad.

Here's a hint...HeHeHe.

  1. Very helpful! I'd like to know about how to enter text that - how to say this? - shows up on the screen in unusual ways. I've seen powerpoints where the text shows up as one letter at a time, or "walks" onto the screen, for example.

    The other things I'd like to know how to do is to have a screen where you have a question, then add the answer to the same screen, but the answer only shows up when you push return. I've figured out cumbersome work arounds for this, but there's got to be a better way.

    1. Great suggestion! I can definitely do a tutorial on those ideas.

      Be on the lookout. :)


  2. This is a great tutorial! There is one thing I can't figure out in Powerpoint. I can't seem to make frames in Powerpoint and save them as transparent PNG files. I'd love a tutorial about that. It drives me crazy!

    I'd love it if you would link this, or a post of your choosing, to my Tips for Newbies Linky!
