Love this!! So many great tips that even a PowerPoint veteran still is learning. Crop to 16:9 ratio will save me tonnes of hours in future! I’ll add that straight to the quick access toolbar!

You say that before reaching this stage you should have already set up your themes. How exactly do you do that?

Hey, great job on the tutorial and thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with others. I have a quick question: is there a particular reason why you copied and pasted the image as a background image/pattern as opposed to simply setting it up as a background image? I would like to change the transparency of the photo and copying and pasting it directly onto the website will not allow me to adjust the transparency. By contrast, setting the photo as a background image will give me the option to set the transparency. Thanks!

Quick question: How can I add the toolbar below the ribbon bar (at 1:29 you add a rectangle using that bar, but I can't find a way to add it). Btw, I'm using Version 1808.
Thanks in advance!
