Airplane Mode

Use Airplane Mode to redact (black out) logos in presentations for privacy when working in close proximity to others, such as on an airplane.

Enable Airplane Mode by clicking the Macabacus > Airplane Mode toggle button in PowerPoint. All logos in all open presentations will be redacted, including those on Slide Masters and their layouts. Macabacus considers a logo any picture that meets certain size criteria. You can also explicitly identify pictures to be redacted in Airplane Mode. Upon creating new presentations or opening existing presentations with Airplane Mode enabled, logos in those presentations will automatically be redacted.

If you save and close a presentation while using Airplane Mode, logos in that presentation will remain redacted. Keep this in mind if you are sharing the presentation with others (particularly those who do not have access to Macabacus' PowerPoint tools). If you, or someone else, later opens the presentation with Airplane Mode disabled (or without access to Macabacus' PowerPoint tools), the pictures will still appear redacted. To unredact pictures, toggle Airplane Mode on and then off.

Airplane Mode

Peek

Right click on a redacted picture and select Airplane Mode > Peek in the context menu to view the picture for a fraction of a second.

Include in Airplane Mode

Right click on an unredacted picture and select Airplane Mode > Include in the context menu to redact the picture in Airplane Mode. You might do this if Macabacus does not automatically redact a picture that you want redacted.

Exclude from Airplane Mode

Right click on a redacted picture and select Airplane Mode > Exclude in the context menu to prevent the picture from being redacted in Airplane Mode. You might do this if Macabacus automatically redacted a picture that you did not want to redact.
