Considerations for PC Users [create on PC then move to Mac]
- Appropriate extension usage: use .PPTX, .PPSX if saving from PowerPoint 2010/2016/2019/2021 format or use .PPT or .PPS if saving to an earlier-version format or saving from an earlier version.
- Copy the media file to the folder where the PowerPoint file is, and only then insert it; otherwise links to most media files will break.
- AVI or MPEG are better choice files for videos or sounds; don’t use WMV (Windows Media Player).
- Usage of fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, Courier and Symbol are best presented on MACS.
- Don’t squeeze your text into placeholders: Text rendering on PC vs MAC (font substitution) can cause your squeezed text to get cut off by text boxes.
The poster session gives an opportunity to interact with senior faculty and share your ideas and get the suggestions in return which make this session an interactive and encouraging bit for the young researchers.
Guaranteed dimensions: 1 meter x 1 meter
