New Features
System Req.

think-cell chart is a powerful charting package that integrates seamlessly with PowerPoint and can be individually customised to respect yet strengthen your company's corporate design. With a minimum of manual adjustments, you get accurate, well-laid-out and standard-conformant charts. Furthermore, with think-cell chart even occasional users can create and change charts 3-5 times faster than any PowerPoint expert without this product.

New in version 8

Process flow
think-cell 8 greatly expands the slide layout functionality of our software by introducing the pentagon/chevron and textbox as new think-cell elements. Show project steps with accompanying bullet points by creating the basic structure very quickly out of building blocks, and use flexible single-click duplication to add additional steps. The following video shows this in action.

The layout is continously re-arranged and optimized automatically when the text in elements changes. Furthermore, the direction of the whole structure can be changed from left-to-right to top-to-bottom by dragging the unified rotation handle.

Excel link for Gantt chart

You like linking charts directly to Excel and having them update automatically? With think-cell 8, Excel links also work in Gantt charts. You can link activities and milestones to dates in Excel. When the dates change, the Gantt chart is updated as well.

Chart to data

Sometimes source data is only available in a chart on a website or a PDF document. The new Chart to Data tool in think-cell 8 lets you work with this data.

Chart type conversion

Would you like to change chart types after the chart has already been created? In think-cell 8, you can easily convert chart types. For example, you can change stacked columns to clustered columns, segments to lines and many more combinations.

More new charting features
  • Do you want the series labels in a legend to appear in a different order than in the datasheet? With think-cell 8, you can also use the chart's visual order, which may be different due to sorting, or an alphabetical order.
  • Automated chart updates with think-cell's programming functions become even more automatic: The chart width remains fixed when the number of chart categories changes, minimizing necessary manual changes to the slide layout.
  • Set the numerical sign of labels independently for segments and totals.

Co-authoring in Microsoft Sharepoint is supported.

Charting features

Stacked column chart
Stacked charts seem simple, but labeling, axes breaks and additional decorations can still take a lot of time. The video shows how think-cell helps in this regard and can therefore save you time even in case of common chart types.

Layout features

Process flow
When building a process flow in think-cell you are not going to use a monolithic, inflexible 'tool'. You simply insert basic elements, such as pentagons, chevrons and text boxes, onto the slide and combine them to create more complex layouts.

The big difference when using think-cell is that these elements not only snap to each other, but stay with each other, no matter what position or size they have to adopt to make their content fit. Such, the complete layout magically adjusts automatically to your elements and their content and creates a well-balanced slide.

With think-cell, 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 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 automatically updated. 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.

Powerful presentation tools
think-cell comes with a sizeable set of additional tools to increase your productivity, some of which are shown in the video below.
  • Quick access to common special characters
  • Save and send selected slides
  • Change proofing language for all text on slide
  • Font replacement and resizing
  • Automatic case code
  • Ink removal

Excel data features

Data links
think-cell comes with a full-fledged internal datasheet based on Excel. Even more powerful are smart Excel data links. Using them you can create and update think-cell charts in PowerPoint directly from your Excel data. Data links foster consistency and correctness and help you collaborate with your colleagues when doing complex analysis and visualization.

Data extraction from chart images
With think-cell you can extract numerical data and category labels from any column and bar chart image. It not only recognizes simple column and bar charts, but also stacked ones.

You can start the extraction process either from think-cell's internal datasheet or directly from Excel. Move the transparent extraction window over your chart image, hit import and the chart's data and labels will appear in your Excel sheet.

Data rounding
When data is compiled for a report or PowerPoint presentation, rounding summations in Excel is a frequent problem. It is often desirable but difficult to achieve that rounded totals match the total of the rounded addends. The video below shows how think-cell solves this problem by offering a set of new Excel functions that are available from a dedicated ribbon group. With a single click on think-cell's flexible rounding function you can do much better than standard Excel formatting and Excel rounding.

The following video shows that think-cell can also solve very complex rounding problems. If necessary, the rounding decisions can be controlled on a cell-by-cell basis. In addition, you can select any set of cells to which rounding should be applied, even with links to other Excel sheets.

Generic features
  • Corporate design (CD) based on style files
  • CD font, color & number format schemes
  • Co-authoring support for Sharepoint
  • One-click manipulation
  • Logical lasso to quickly select similar elements
  • All labels with full PowerPoint functionality
  • Multi-language interface

Automate your PowerPoint work
Creating slides in Microsoft PowerPoint is painstaking. Frequently used chart types and graphical elements are missing and there is nearly no automatic placement. Usually, you end up manually updating numbers and pushing around shapes.

think-cell is different. It is a powerful charting and layout software that automates your PowerPoint work and such improves slide creation efficiency and quality. Within minutes you get well-laid-out and great-looking slides.

Save 70% working time on charts
One of the leading consulting firms quantified think-cell's impact on chart production. One of their highly experienced graphics experts created and updated 48 typical slides using PowerPoint. The complete process took him over 10 hours.

The same graphics expert then received a short introduction to think-cell and started to create and update the slides using think-cell. He needed only 3 hours – saving 70% of net working time.

Don't worry about training
Tired of digging through dozens of toolbars, menus and property panes while looking for the right feature? think-cell avoids such clutter and has a simple user interface. The following three minute video shows you everything you need to know about using think-cell.

Don't tie yourself to incompatible file formats
Other 3rd party software for PowerPoint often relies on non-native file formats for charts, such as Flash, images or completely proprietary formats. Using such software means that you put your digital assets at risk when you decide to stop using it or the vendor goes out of business. You won't be able to change hundreds, or even thousands of charts you created.

In contrast, think-cell uses only native PowerPoint charts and shapes for its output. Charts created with our software and shared with pure PowerPoint users remain data-driven and changeable. And should you ever decide to stop using think-cell, all your slides and charts will remain available and changeable as if you had created them with standard PowerPoint.
