Generate a Microsoft PowerPoint version of your presentation

To share or present your findings with others, you can create a Microsoft PowerPoint version of your presentation in just a few easy steps. Every part of your presentation -- from labels to individual geographic shapes -- is editable within the generated PowerPoint, although you might need to use the ungrouping options in PowerPoint to access certain aspects of the visualization. Graphics are exported as vector files, which means that they can be resized without losing quality, and can be edited in third-party products.

 

Before you begin

Make sure that your visualizations are in the order and the width that you want them. Rhiza for Research will place one visualization per slide, in the order they are found in the presentation. The visualization will be scaled to fill the slide, though the visualization width does make a difference. Remember that visualizations can have one of four widths:

  • Full size
  • Two thirds
  • Half
  • One third

To show you the difference visualization width makes in PowerPoint output, consider the following graphics.

A visualization whose width has been set to Half takes up less horizontal space in the PowerPoint as well

Figure 56: This visualization's width is set to Half; as a result, it uses less horizontal space on the PowerPoint as well (Click to enlarge)

A visualization whose width has been set to Full uses more horizontal space in the PowerPoint

Steps

  1. Open your presentation.
  2. Click Generate PowerPoint.

    The Generate PowerPoint button is at the top right of the presentation window

    Once the PowerPoint generation is finished, this button changes to Download PowerPoint.
  3. Click Download PowerPoint.
  4. Optionally, open the PowerPoint version of the presentation and make any changes you need.

 

What to do next

If you make changes to your presentation after you've generated the PowerPoint, the Generate PowerPoint button becomes available to you so you can update your PowerPoint.

Note: Once you create a PowerPoint, the only place you can access it (besides the location where you downloaded it) is inside the presentation itself. You cannot access it from the list of presentations on the Presentations tab.
