Swap your images one for one

What This Feature Does

The Swap buttons are amazing tools that allow you to quickly update your PowerPoint images when you need to replace, modify, or update them on a regular basis. Gone are the days of painfully resizing and repositioning your images. Swap does it all for you!

In the below example, we are swapping out some newly formatted charts in Excel into our PowerPoint presentation. All we have to do is copy the chart from Excel, select the target image we want to swap in PowerPoint, and click the Swap button in the Guru Tab. The old chart is automatically deleted and the new one is perfectly placed 1-for-1 in its place. No resizing, no repositioning!

How the Guru Tab for Powerpoint works

The Quick & Simple Steps To Swap

  1. Copy your new Excel Chart or Excel Range

  2. Go to your PowerPoint and select your old image

  3. Click the Swap button

Why Are There Two Buttons? (One for Pictures and One for Charts)

That is a great question! The simple answer is that Chart objects paste better in certain PasteSpecial types than other objects (like an Excel Range or a Shape). Because of this, I felt it was vital to have two buttons where you could easily call two of your preferred PasteSpecial types.

What Is The Dimensioner?

The Dimensioner is a floating userform tool that allows you to read-in sizes and positions of selected objects and applies those "dimensions" to other objects that you select.

An Example

Let's say you wanted 4 charts on your slide to all be the same size. You can use the Dimensioner to read in your desired size of one chart and then apply that size to the rest of the charts. Take a look at the Dimensioner in action!

An example of how to use Guru tab for PowerPoint

Notice how you can manipulate other images based on the properties read into the Dimensioner for the initially selected object. You can even apply dimensions across multiple slides based on the Object Name, allowing you to ensure titles, footers, or logos are exactly the same size and in the same position on the slide.

Current Progress Status of Your Slides

What This Feature Does

PowerPoint Slide status buttons

The Slide Status buttons allow you to easily keep track of the slides in your presentation to tell whether they have been worked on, needs review, or are ready to go. You can use the default format of the buttons that come with the Guru Tab or you can completely customize them to match your preferred text or look & feel.

Customize Your Slide Status Tags

Default slide tags

The Guru Tab gives you the ability to change the following properties of the Status Tags:

  • Text

  • Location on the Slide

  • Format

  • Size

All you have to do is CREATE a shape that you want to use, POSITION it on the slide where you want it to show up, and SAVE the format through the Modify Formats button. You can even change the button name that appears on the PowerPoint Ribbon!

Custom Callout Graphics

What This Feature Does

Do you ever find yourself creating the same text boxes over and over again? Like a "Draft" or "Placeholder" label for your slides? Or even a Red Box to call out something important on the slide? This headache inspired me to come up with a way to easily create customizable buttons that could re-create these simple callouts.

Here's How To Create Your Own:

Undo History For Everything

Macros and VBA can be a scary thing because in most cases you cannot undo the actions once they have been executed. The Guru Tab add-in has the ability to undo everything it does on the PowerPoint slides. This will give you piece of mind in the event you do something you didn't want to do!

Color Palette

Many times you are required to use colors in your presentation that match your company's brand or color preferences. The Guru Tab allows you to store up to 10 different RGB color codes and will add them to your PowerPoint presentation’s Recently Used Colors menu.

Keyword Finder in PowerPoint

Keyword Finder

Many companies have specific words or phrases that they or their lawyers don't want them to use in presentations. The Keyword Finder allows you to store a list of all the words or phrases you don't want in your presentation. When you press the Keyword Finder button on the Guru Tab add-in, it will search through all of your text highlighting anything from your stored list in red font. After it has run, you will be notified if it found any words that you shouldn't be using and which slide numbers were affected.

Lots of Settings To Customize Your Experience!

The Guru Tab comes with a bunch of ways to customize how you use the add-in. These settings include:

  • Select Default Buttons so you can quickly use your preferred PasteSpecial option or PDF save method.

  • Ability to input and preview all the RGB color codes used for the Color Palette button.

  • Pick a folder location for your Guru Tab Settings. If placed on a shared drive, you could potentially share the same formats for your callouts, slide status tags, and various other settings across your team or company.
