Applies to PowerPoint 2019.
PowerPoint 2019 contains multiple new features that aren’t found in earlier versions.
PowerPoint 2019 includes the Morph transition, aiding you with creating seamless animations on your slides.
Zoom for PowerPoint
To boost the energy of a presentation and facilitate custom navigation in it, test Zoom for PowerPoint. Once you make a Zoom in PowerPoint, you can skip to and from particular slides, sections, and segments of your presentation in the order of your choice while you’re presenting, and the movement between slides applies a zooming effect.
PowerPoint 2019 now includes a built-in Text Highlighter like Word’s own, by popular demand! Choose various highlight colours to illuminate specific sections of the text in your presentations.
Pictures and other media
Vector graphics for visual impact
You can add and alter scalable vector graphic (SVG) images in presentations to design sharp, professionally designed content. SVG images can be re-coloured, and they maintain their original quality once they are zoomed or resized. Office supports SVG files that contain filters applied to them.
Convert SVG icons to shapes
Converting an SVG image or icon to an Office shape means you can compress the SVG file and edit its individual components.
Insert 3D models to see all angles
Use 3D models to boost visual and creative effect in presentations. Easily add a 3D model, and then rotate it through 360 degrees.
Animate a model in your presentation with the Morph transition, which produces cinematographic animations between slides.
Easier background removal
We’ve simplified deleting and changing a picture’s background. PowerPoint instantly scans the main background zone; there’s no need for you to draw a rectangle around the front of your picture. The pencil for marking areas to retain or erase can now draw free-form lines, instead of being confined to linear lines.
You can also draw free-form lines utilising the pencil for marking areas to save or delete—no restriction to drawing only straight lines.
Export to 4K
Once you export a presentation to video, 4K resolution now appears as an option.
You can record video or audio narration, and you can record digital inking gestures. An optional Recording tab on the Ribbon compiles all the recording features in one location.
Draw or write with digital ink
Customisable, portable pen set
Select a personal range of pens, highlighters, and pencils for inking, which are accessible to you within the Office apps.
Accompanying several colours, you can integrate ink effects to articulate your ideas with flair—metallic pens and ink effects including rainbow, galaxy, lava, ocean, gold, silver, and more.
Segment Eraser for ink drawings
Segment Eraser helps you with accurate control during cleansing an ink drawing. It deletes ink back to its intersection point with another line.
A straightedge for drawing straight lines
On devices that have touchscreens, you can use the Ruler on the Draw tab of the ribbon to either draw straight lines or align a series of objects. Position the ruler horizontally, vertically, or anything in between: it includes a degrees setting, allowing you to set it at a specific angle, if required.
Other new features
Funnel charts and 2D map charts
Apply a funnel chart to present progressively decreasing proportions.
Transform geographic data into a map chart in only a few steps to spot insights, trends, and opportunities.
Run a slideshow with your digital pen
Use your Surface pen, or any other Bluetooth button-equipped pen to run through your slides.
