Hi, there. In this lesson, we will work on a table.
Now let us make a clean consistent table.
And I will show you two possible ways you can approach this.
Now, we want to be kind of consistent with the color scheme we have.
So we most likely will use this gray and orange.
I will just copy that. And I will select a new slide.
This is only to help me with the colors.
And let me try something.
So you will have two options here:
Either you design the table by yourself with elements of PowerPoint,
要么点击“插入” “表格”插入一个 比如说 4×4的表
or you go to Insert, Table, and you insert a simple, for example, four on four table.
The advantage here is that everything works really quick.
You have a few pre-designed elements. I, for example, like those more clean ones.
And you can adjust each object separately.
For example, if you want different borders,
you can select, for example, an outside border.
Here you select what kind of border this should be.
Of course, not such a big one.
你可以用这样的边 甚至很夸张的那种 例如对角线
You can make borders like that, even crazy borders, like the diagonal up border.
So this would be one way of creating a table.
This has also disadvantages, because you have to select the shading separately.
And it makes you just as much work as you would create this from scratch.
I would select the eyedropper and select this color.
Now, you can see something like that is possible.
This is, if you want to present data quickly.
However, if you would like to create a minimalistic table on your own, I would select another approach.
通过“插入” “形状”的方法 我还将比较两种设计风格
I would create Insert, Shapes, and will compare both design style.
我们来选择 例如说 一个简单的矩形吧
Let’s select, for example, a simple rectangle.
I’ll create a rectangle like that. And I want to show you a trick.
A trick you probably already know. But, maybe you didn’t realize how this can be utilized.
Okay, I’ll select Format Shape.
I’ll go to the Fill and we will work with gradients.
And what do I want to achieve here?
I want to use linear gradients.
And I want the left and right side to be invisible.
How will I achieve that?
I will select three colors.
I’ll make sure the direction is from left to right, like that.
好的 我们有了白色 蓝色和另一个蓝色 但我想让这里为白色
Okay, we have white, blue, and again blue. But I want it to be white.
Okay, you can see I kinda achieved some transparency on the left and right side.
I can even go to transparency by selecting the right color.
左侧颜色的透明度 ……的透明度 好了 我保留中间的颜色
Transparency for the left color, transparency for… Okay, and I’ll left with the middle color.
The middle color should be our orange.
And this is how I would start to design my awesome table.
如果我选这个灰色 就会像这样 看它多么漂亮啊
If I would select my gray, it would look like that. And look how nice this looks.
It looks really original. And it’s something completely different.
I would start to design my table like that.
例如 由于我有一 二 三行
For example, since I have one, two, three rows,
我会选用已有的一 二 三种颜色
I would select one, two, three colors we already have.
And we can go with this design that we already have.
我来把这个放在左边 或许渐变小一点 用两种颜色
I’ll put this on the left side, and maybe I’d like a smaller gradient with two colors.
I would get rid of the first color.
I will take the gray to the left side. And now, I would have something like this.
我们想像一下 比如说 如果我有三种颜色
Let’s just imagine that, for example, I had colors, three colors here.
Okay, let me at least try and get those eyedropper.
第一个吸管 好的 搞定 第二个吸管
So, the first one eyedropper. Well, I get it. The second one eyedropper.
Now, as you can see, the second technique I do here is a bit time-consuming.
但更加独特 看起来也更好 设计感更强
But it’s much more original. It looks better. It’s better designed.
And now, I could have the separators. It could be done very very simple.
不用多想 只需要点“插入” “形状”
You don’t have to overthink it. You just go to Insert, Shapes.
你 比如说 用Shift在这里插入一个简单的线段 然后把线形改为点状线
You, for example, insert a simple line here with the Shift key, and then you make it dotted.
非常简单 进入线形种类 选这个点状
It’s super simple. You just go to dash type. You select those… those dots.
Then you go to round it.
当然 应该大一点 因为这样才能看得到
And, of course, the weight should be bigger. Because we would like to see them.
And the color. I believe the color should be the gray one.
看看 好 你可以这样制作
And look at that. Okay, you can make it like this.
很酷的一点就是 你也可以设置透明度 让它不那么生硬
And what’s cool here, you can also work with the transparency, so it’s not so strong.
我就来粘贴 粘贴 粘贴
I’ll just Control+V, Control+V, Control+V.
I would make those separators like that.
And look what I achieved.
I would just Control+C and Control+V, until I have the amount of table content I want.
So, now I can compare those two designs.
Well, in my opinion, this takes a bit longer time.
Because you will have always go to insert, text box.
And you’ll have to place those text boxes separately.
好 我只要复制粘贴 复制粘贴 会比较费时
Okay, I just have to Control+C, Control+V, Control+C, Control+V. And this would take me longer.
好了 我点击一 二 三 一 二 三 一 二 三
Here, I just click one, two, three; one, two, three; one, two, three.
So depending, if you have many tables on your presentations, or how much time do you have…
I would suggest thinking about something like this.
For example, I especially like the start that we do.
And this could be just an indicator of the color.
It doesn’t have to be like that. It could be also like this.
Just imagine how amazing this looks, and how easy it is to make changes.
I think that’s a cool idea.
And just remember, when you design tables, you don’t have to use normal PowerPoint tables.
You can always design them on your own.
