Strikethrough is a popular effekt in blog. If you want to use it in a presentation done with OpenOffice.org Impress, you just mark the text you want to strikethrough, do a right mouse click and voila – strikethrough:
Now if you want to do the same in Microsoft Office Powerpoint 2007, you are out of luck:
Microsoft Office PowerPoint does not include the text effects for strikethrough on the Format menu that come with Microsoft Office Word. You can reproduce these effects by using the Drawing toolbar, however.
- Display the slide with the text you want to show in strikethrough format.
- From the Drawing toolbar in the lower-left corner of the screen, choose the Line tool.
- Draw a line over the text you want to format as strikethrough.
Now remember, according to Microsoft, the new Office 2007 features
he Microsoft Office Fluent user interface that exposes commonly used and familiar commands, enhanced graphics, and formatting capabilities that enable you to create high-quality documents,
Enhanced text effects and
new context-sensitive command tabs – but apparently no strikethrough.
Thanks to Mike for the pointer.
