We are going to send most graphs in Column and Bar project to the above PPT file which consists of four slides: 1st slide is title; 2nd slide is table of contents; 3rd slide is blank; 4th slide is End page. All the sent graphs will be inserted into this PPT file starting from the 3rd slide and using the same style as starting slide.
At the top of the Send Graphs to PowerPoint App dialog, there are two useful but easily-overlooked tabs. The "Save" tab has controls for naming and saving the current App dialog settings, as well as setting them as default. The "Settings" tab has controls for selecting and applying default settings (System Default Settings) or last used settings, or applying a named group of settings. Additionally, you can delete unneeded settings from this tab.
