Turn your Pincello timeline into a Google Slide

Follow

Overview

Pincello lets you instantly download your timelines and Gantt charts as editable PowerPoint slides so you can easily share them or present them in meetings. However, if you don't have access to Microsoft PowerPoint or prefer using G Suite, you might want to import your Pincello visual into a Google Slides presentation. Here's how to do it:

Steps

  1. Download your timeline as a PowerPoint slide (Right-Click -> Download -> PowerPoint).

  5. Done! You've now turned your Pincello timeline into a native Google Slide that you can edit manually with the usual G Suite controls. You can change texts, recolor anything, and resize or reposition objects as you wish.screenshot_5.png

 

Notes:

  • Expect font changes. Google Slides may not have the text fonts you originally used in Pincello. If that's the case, it will convert your original typefaces into the closest available font.
  • Minor format changes may occur too. The timeline's formatting after the import will be very similar to the original, but some differences may occur. You may need to look for such details and tweak them to get the perfect layout in Google Slides.
