Microsoft focuses on ‘mobile content creation’ with new PowerPoint feature

Microsoft last made significant changes to PowerPoint a few months ago. And after months of inactivity, the company is releasing the much-requested PowerPoint feature starting today.

Inspiring “mobile content creation” momentum, Microsoft is introducing the ability to create portrait mode slides in PowerPoint for iPhone and iPad devices. iOS users will now be able to turn portrait mode on and off when creating and editing slides.

This feature is currently limited to iOS users only, but not everyone can use it right now. In its official blog post , Microsoft stated that the new portrait orientation is available to Office Insiders running version 2.68 (build 22112003) or later. If you’re an insider, you can try creating a slide in portrait mode by following these steps:

How it works

On iPad

  1. Open an existing presentation or create one.
  2. On the Design tab, click Orientation .
  3. Select Portrait .

On iPhone

  1. Open an existing presentation or create a new one.
  2. On the Home tab, click Design and then click Orientation .
  3. Select Portrait .

Microsoft’s push for “mobile content creation” would be incomplete without the inclusion of Android devices. Unfortunately, the software giant is silent on when portrait orientation will be available for PowerPoint for Android.
