60 Sec. PowerPoint ProTip » Repeat Action Keyboard Shortcut

Published on Oct 8, 2014

60 Second PowerPoint ProTips » Weekly tips for users of all skill levels.


Creating a PowerPoint presentation that’s well designed requires many things, but a major one is uniformity.

In other words, making sure everything has the same look and feel.

Sometimes, in order to get that uniformity, you have to repeat actions over and over again - fortunately, there’s a keyboard shortcut in PowerPoint that allows you to quickly repeat whatever your last action was.

The shortcut is Command-Y on a Mac and Control-Y on a PC.

What’s great is that also works for shapes, and tons of other actions in PowerPoint as well.

That’s it for this week, subscribe if you’d like to follow along and leave a comment for future powerpoint or presentation issues you’d like to see addressed, thanks!

RT 2011: Screencast 01 - Emacs Keyboard Introduction 

Uploaded on Sep 24, 2011

SSTattler: Everybody who knows EMACS then they know the three special keys cntrl, alt, and cmd but after my stroke I have to learn addition Sticky Keys!

The first video for the 2011 Research Tools (ESCI 895-03) at the University of New Hampshire in the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM). The goal of this video is introduce you to using just the keyboard for working inside the GNU Emacs text editor. This video goes along with lectures 7 and 8.

The research tools website is:

For those interested in how this was captured: This video was captured with iShowU HD on a MacBook Air with Mac OSX 10.7. GNU Emacs 23 was running inside a VMWare Fusion 3.1.3 instance of Ubuntu 11.04 in 32bit mode. I used a plantronics USB-Adaptor02 for the audio and the headset that comes with Dragon Dictate for the Mac.

The Editor of a Lifetime

Published on Aug 20, 2014

SSTattler: Good lecture (or gab talk or chitter-chatter or...), a bit long, but I constantly use Emacs for generate "text" from the late 1970s thru today. If you are considering using Emacs: 1) the cost is $0.00, 2) available at GNU Emacs - just read a bit or even try it... !! 

 Perry Metzger has been using Emacs as his text editor since early September, 1983 -- nearly 31 years. Over much of that time, it has also been his primary way to read email, compile programs, and perform a variety of other tasks.

Why would anyone use a single program for that long? This talk is partially intended to answer that question.

Emacs remains one of the most important user interfaces (and text editors) for computer professionals almost 40 years after it was created. The talk is intended to be part history, part philosophy, and part speculation on the future. It will also teach Emacs fans how to explain to their skeptical friends why it is still a good idea to learn a tool from the terminal era that requires memorization of dozens of control sequences in an age of GUIs and smart phones.
