    Default Articles/Tenses in PowerPoint Presentations

    I am sometimes confused about article/tense usage in powerpoint presentations. Specifically:

    - Omitting articles
    - Omitting articles for the first word in a title/bullet point
    - Are simple tenses preferred?

    I would appreciate if anyone could suggest some websites/books that deal with the topic.

    Thanks a lot!

    Default Re: Articles/Tenses in PowerPoint Presentations

    If you Google "Powerpoint style guidelines" you will get a lot of hits. Here is one random one I found:
    PowerPoint Style Guidelines - American Marketing Association

    Some institutions or companies will have their own in-house style guidelines.

    I would say that omitting articles (unless they are vital to comprehension) is fine in order to save space.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
