You can nudge most PowerPoint shapes using the arrow keys, but not charts. If you select a chart and press the arrow keys, it selects different sub-shapes within the chart rather than moving the chart.
Instead, press the Ctrl key, then select the chart. Instead of the usual chart selection frame, you'll see little circles at each corner of the chart, and you'll be able to nudge the chart with the arrow keys or use Ctrl+ArrowKey to nudge in 1 pixel increments.
To select an entire SmartArt diagram (so you can nudge or otherwise work with it) rather than one of its component shapes, click anywhere in the SmartArt diagram then press ESC.

And don't forget that you can hold down the Control key and drag a guide to get additional guides.
The PowerPoint 2007 "Slide Master plus Multiple Layouts" model gives us the ability to add our own custom layouts, which is fantastic.
Unfortunately, our older PPT versions don't automagically inherit the new features. They don't understand layouts, other than the supplied and uneditable AutoLayouts, and never will. (Go ahead, MS ... make a liar of me. I'll be delighted!).
So? So if you're creating templates that'll be used in both 2007 and earlier versions, our best advice is to create them in 2003 then save a separate version and modify that in 2007. PowerPoint 2007 users should use your 2007 templates, 2003 and earlier users should use the earlier versions. Moving presentations and templates back and forth between versions is a recipe for trouble. Avoid it.

Word 2007 Layout
When making the move to Word 2007, throw away everything you know about the interface. Just about everything has changed. Whether you're opening files, changing the document view or using the menu, you're about to enter a brave new world. Here's a quick guided tour to the Word 2007 interface:
3. The Ribbon. Love it or hate it, the Ribbon is the main way you'll work with Word. Instead of old-style menus, in which menus have submenus, submenus have sub-submenus and so on, the Ribbon groups buttons for common tasks together in tabs on a graphical interface. So, for example, when you click the Insert tab, a Ribbon appears with buttons for items that you can insert into a document, such as clip art, a hyperlink, a picture or a table. Even if you hate the Ribbon, it can be your friend; check out the section "Learn to Love the Ribbon" for details.
5. The View Toolbar. The View toolbar, which used to be on the lower left-hand side of the screen in earlier versions of Word, moves over to the right in Word 2007. It lets you choose between print layout, full screen, Web layout, outline and draft views, just as it did in earlier Word versions. There's also a nice addition -- a slider that lets you zoom in or out on your document.
6. The Status Bar. This is in the same place as in earlier Word versions and has the same function -- to display information such as the number of pages in your document. It has one nice little extra: It displays the word count of your document as well. If you highlight an area of text, it will display the number of words in the highlighted area.
