Description from the packaging.

The most popular presentation graphics program for Macintosh.

Microsoft PowerPoint presentation graphics program version 4.0 has everything you need to quickly turn your ideas into powerfully convincing presentations. As a member of the Microsoft Office family, PowerPoint features IntelliSense technology- built-in intelligence that senses what you want to do and helps you produce the results you want. So routine tasks are automatic and complex jobs are easier with intelligent features such as the Pick a Look and AutoContent wizards. Now it's easier than ever to create presentations that look great and get your point across.

Create effective overheads, on-screen electronic presentations, high-quality 35-mm slides, speaker's notes, and audience handouts.

With one click of the button, you can select from 21 slide layouts provided in AutoLayout. After the graph and text layout has been chosen, on-screen instructions lead you to the next step.

Create more effective presentations with help from the exclusive AutoContent Wizard. Simply choose your topic and the Wizard automatically creates a fully-formatted presentation, complete with suggestions on content.

Take advantage of innovative tools that help you get started immediately and learn as you go.

  • Rely on ToolTips to identify toolbar buttons and tools.
  • Follow on-screen directions so that you always know what to do next.
  • Receive constant feedback from the Status Bar.
  • Use your knowledge of Microsoft Excel and Word- more than 100 tasks are performed the same in PowerPoint.
  • Illustrate your point with sound and movies using QuickTime for dynamic multimedia presentations.
  • Take advantage of enhanced text and outlining tools.

Present your ideas more effectively to get the results you want.

  • Use Rehearsal to practice your delivery- provides automatic feedback on timing for each slide.
  • Use Hidden Slides for those tough questions you may be asked- the slides won't appear unless you need them.
  • Drag and drop data between programs or embed Microsoft Excel, Word, or Microsoft Project documents into your presentation using Drill Down.
  • Create and edit Microsoft Excel worksheets and Word tables in PowerPoint.

PowerPoint helps maximize your Mac.

  • System 7 Pro support, including PowerTalk, PowerShare, QuickTime, and AppleScript.
  • Shines on either Macintosh (68020 or higher) or Power Macintosh computers.

Go farther with a family.

  • Microsoft PowerPoint is part of the Microsoft Office, a family of full-featured products designed to work together like one.
  • Office programs look alike, work alike, and share text, data, and graphics as if they were a single program.
  • They automate routine tasks and simplify complex jobs.
  • Programs for Macintosh work seamlessly with programs for the Windows operating system in the Microsoft Office family.
  • To get even more from Microsoft PowerPoint, get in in Microsoft Office Standard.
