16:9 or 4:3? Interesting insights from our survey to PowerPoint - Make your vote count!

Tobias Kablitz
October 2, 2017

Last month we asked you to take part in our survey on the “PowerPoint aspect ratio: 16:9 or 4:3?”. We asked:

“What PowerPoint aspect ratio is currently used in your corporation?”

Here are the results divided into answers from the USA and from Europe:

survey Powerpoint



Our recommendation in the article “Which PowerPoint aspect ratio: 16:9 or 4:3?” is ratified by the result. The most preferred format is clearly 16:9. It is surprising that more than half of all corporations use this format. DIN A4 or US letter format are only scarcely used for presentations. If you plan to revise a presentation, or update your PowerPoint content for a more modern, contemporary look, the established 16:9 format is the way forward. To aid you in creating a new PowerPoint master we recommend you to download our free whitepaper.
