Just about everyone uses PowerPoint at some point. If you’re more than just a sometime user you should check out the Power User plug-in to see how much time it can save you.

After installing the Power User plugin, you’ll see a new “Power-user” tab which gives you a nice type of mission control for your slide creation and editing efforts.

It has tons of features, but let me use just one example to illustrate how useful it is. If you ever need to ‘fix’ a slide deck, you’ll love some of Power User’s clean up functions which automatically removes things like double blank spaces in your text, empty placeholders, footers and more.


Power User adds some nice features to PowerPoint that are otherwise unavailable. Take these alignment options for example. Without this new tab, aligning shapes to touch each other is a manual operation.

Power User automates that a many other things you’ve wished PowerPoint could do and some you’ve probably never thought of!
