The earliest version of PowerPoint (1987 for Macintosh) could be used to print black and white pages to be photocopied onto sheets of transparent film for projection from overhead projectors , and to print speaker's notes and audience handouts; the next version (1988 for Macintosh, 1990 for Windows) was extended to also produce color 35mm slides by communicating a file over a modem to a Genigraphics imaging center with slides returned by overnight delivery for projection from slide projectors . PowerPoint was used for planning and preparing a presentation, but not for delivering it (apart from previewing it on a computer screen, or distributing printed paper copies).  The operation of PowerPoint changed substantially in its third version (1992 for Windows and Macintosh), when PowerPoint was extended to also deliver a presentation by producing direct video output to digital projectors or large monitors.  In 1992 video projection of presentations was rare and expensive, and practically unknown from a laptop computer. Robert Gaskins, one of the creators of PowerPoint, says he publicly demonstrated that use for the first time at a large Microsoft meeting held in Paris on February 25, 1992, by using an unreleased development build of PowerPoint running on an early pre-production sample of a powerful new color laptop and feeding a professional auditorium video projector .

The range of things you do as a writer are your writing territories . These territories include genres you know or want to try, subjects you’ve written about or would like to, and the audiences for your writing. A territories list gives you a glimpse of who you are as a writer, student, son/daughter, brother/sister, young adult, and friend. Your territories list is a bank of ideas: a place to go when trying to determine a topic/subject about which to write. Keeping a territories list can help you be a more organized, productive, and focused writer. It helps you keep your eyes on the prize by constantly reminding you of who you are and what you know and what your passions are.
To be honest I didn’t find this review very helpful – all it did was leave me deflated . The reason I am looking at proofreading software is because I do not have somebody like your wife on hand to check my stuff and really don’t want to be forking out $15 – $20 every time I need a proof reader – and end up waiting hours or even overnight — and no, I’m not interested in a proofreading service. It’s too expensive when you’re churning out lots of copy. I just need something that will catch some of the errors that slip through. I also don’t find Word to be particularly good – I just wish there was some software that could do a good job.
