think-cell layout – As easy as sketching

Did you ever ask yourself why laying out presentation slides is so time-consuming? One main problem is that you have to carefully adjust the position of every element with the mouse, resize boxes or arrows to make text fit inside or next to them or adjust table column widths by hand. When you make a change to your slide, for example removing or adding an element or editing the text, you often need to readjust the whole layout to make everything fit again.

think-cell layout will solve this problem with its revolutionary smart-grid user interface. It will provide you with a library of presentation elements exactly matching the professional's presentation needs. You simply drag these smart-elements onto the slide and snap them into an adaptive grid. All elements adjust their size and position automatically according to their content, yet they maintain the layout you defined.

Our objective with think-cell layout is to allow you to create a slide as quickly as sketching it on paper. This is a very ambitious task. Therefore, the smart-grid user interface of think-cell layout is still under development. Nevertheless, you can already use our powerful agenda component and further presentation tools as part of the think-cell presentation suite. Browse through the following video gallery to learn more.

  • Agenda

    With think-cell layout, creating and maintaining a complete agenda in PowerPoint is as simple as a table of contents in a good word processor. Simply add chapter slides to your deck, type in the chapter titles and think-cell layout will take care of the rest. Not only when you change titles, but also when you reorder your slides in the slide sorter, the agenda will be updated automatically. In slide show mode, the table of contents as well as every chapter slide can be used for non-linear slide navigation by a simple mouse click.

  • Basic elements

    As an experienced PowerPoint user you know how surprisingly hard it is to create pentagon and chevron shapes with a constant arrow angle and Rounded Rectangles with a constant corner radius. think-cell layout fixes this by providing smarter alternatives to these basic shapes. It also comes with specific support for Harvey balls and checkboxes.

  • Powerful tools

    think-cell layout comes with a sizeable set of additional tools to increase your productivity. You can quickly insert special symbols, remove mark-up ink, decrease/increase the font size on all slides of your presentation, change the proofing language for all text on the current slide or the whole presentation, and save or email selected slides. The automatic case code helps you to label your slides with the file name or file path of your presentation.
