Question of the week of 10/17: Venn Diagrams

Question: Do we have a way to make Venn diagrams?

Answer: PowerPoint has several tools that may help you in creating a Venn diagram using their SmartArt tools, found under the Insert tab. Go to Insert > SmartArt and click the Relationship category and select from the Venn diagrams in the bottom row.

In addition, there are some wonderful PowerPoint templates available from Microsoft Office which contain samples of Venn diagrams. Go to Office button (or New in 2010) and select New and search Microsoft Office online templates by typing in “venn diagram” in the search field toward the top of the screen. (You can also go to office.microsoft.com and search).  A “Venn Diagram Examples” presentation will display which you can download. This presentation has 12 professional-looking slides with Venn diagrams that you may find helpful.

For those of you who have upgraded or are thinking of upgrading to PowerPoint 2010, I am giving a session on Tuesday, 10/18 from 1-2 in our training room (8011 Wittson) on the new features of PowerPoint 2010. Learn about enhanced SmartArt, animation and transition tools, new video tools, sections and learn how to broadcast your presentation and save as a video.
