Dear Sir,

We read the publication on “Split attention effect and imagination effect-two potential pitfalls in PowerPoint® presentation?” with great interest.[1] We agree that the mentioned effects are the important pitfalls for PowerPoint® presentation. Indeed, the PowerPoint® presentation is widely used in the medical education at present. Nevertheless, the quality of the PowerPoint® presentation is little mentioned. There also other possible pitfalls and problems in using PowerPoint® presentation. The alteration of the font size and figure color due to the background design in PowerPoint® presentation is common. Regarding the content in the PowerPoint® presentation, the plagiarism of the content is possible. Many PowerPoint® presentation files are freely available online and the direct copy of the PowerPoint® presentation, which is considered a plagiarism, by the medical student is common. In a recent report from Iran, <50% of the medical students recognized “proper referencing in Microsoft PowerPoint slideshows.”[2]
