With rapidly increasing computing power and features in mobiles and tablets, people are finding mobile devices as their go-to devices for almost everything. From a work standpoint, mobile devices are not just for “on the go” busy professionals – the pandemic-driven work from home models saw mobile usage increase across the board.
Indeed the always-on connectivity, feature-rich apps, and the use-anywhere convenience of mobile just keep people getting more and more hooked on to their favorite devices – be it mobile, tablets, phablets, or what have you.
The challenge: Not all content that gets created is mobile optimized. This is especially true for PowerPoint presentations. Users often experience distorted graphics, see strange font sizes, overlapping text amongst other issues with the content. Sometimes, when opening the presentation on mobile, users just see a blank screen- not knowing that the cause of that is often the size of the file was too big to load.
This, needless to say, is unfortunate given the time and effort the creators spend making the presentations. Sophisticated users, over time, have learned to send pdfs of the documents along with the PowerPoint files to avoid these situations- but that adds yet another item to worry especially in high-stakes presentations situations!
Why does this happen?
The mobile format is different, optimized for a small screen. When one creates PowerPoint content on a large screen, it works well when viewed on large screens. When viewed on small screens like phones or tablets, the mobile devices squeeze content for smaller screens and end up distorting the graphics. Over time, devices have become smarter to still show the content with some reasonableness but the issues are obvious and glaring
