    I have a couple of VBA questions. It would be greatly appreciated if someone cold help me. 1) is there any way to make the mouse icon disappear over an auto shape in Kiosk mode? 2) how would you get the "Set Up Show" menu to open within Kiosk mode? Thanks!
  • 2. Layout and Stacking
    I have created a PP 2007 template. I have a Picture placeholder that i have sent to the back of the master slide so that a line I drew would be in front of the picture. However, when I actually use the template and put a picture in to the placeholder, the line appears behind the picture, even if I send the picture back. Is there a way to make sure the line, which is not a placeholder but an object in the master slide, appears in front of the picture? this is very frustrating > : [
  • 3. auto-reverse pause?
    Using PowerPoint 2002 (XP) in Windows XP SP3. Using a custom motion path, I am causing a long page to scroll down and then to autoreverse and scroll back to the starting point. It works fine, but I was wondering if there was a way to make the motion path pause briefly before starting the auto-reverse. Is there? (I am also using the slowest speed for the scrolling (without smooth start and end) but would like an even slower speed but I guess that is not available). Thanks. Jeff

    I have PowerPoint 2002 XP with Windows 2000 and have a Power Point presentation that is larger than 2 Megabytes. I want to send it to a thumb drive (USB memory stick) rather than a floppy disk and use the latter on a laptop with a USB port to give the presentation. There is not such option listed under File>Send To: How do I do this? John

I don't think there is any adjustment in PPT 2007 to make the elbow arrow 
connector round. Alternatives I feel is to use curve arrow connector or 
freeform and edit points which you want to.

1.Round Corners on Block Arrow AutoShape


I want to be able to have round corners (RCs) on a particular AutoShape. The 
shape i want RCs on can be found by clicking 'AutoShapes'... 'Block 
Arrows'... 'Pentagon'.

If AutoShape cannot be edited, can a 'Custom AutoShape' be created?

So far I have tried to create a shape in Adobe Illustrator and export as 
EMF/WMF, but as you would presume... when horzitonal resize the arrow head 
does not stay the same (it streches) and the stroke on shape stretches.

Any help greatly appreciated.

2.Manually controlling elbows in elbow connectors

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I'm trying to draw a chart with connected boxes and need to be able to manually route the elbow connectors. <br><br>Sometimes when I add a connector or move a box, the connector automatically adds an additional elbow (the little yellow control point), but I can't find a way to add one manually. <br><br>So at the moment I have connectors deciding their own routing and going straight across boxes rather than around them. <br><br>I'm hoping there's a simple answer, but it's driving me nuts trying to find it - can anyone help please? <br><br>Regards, Brian

3.Elbow Connectors in PowerPoint 2007

I was wondering if someone knows of a workaround for the following problem 
with PowerPoint 2007:

If you place two autoshape rectangles so that one is on the left of the 
other and then you put an elbow connector from the left side of the one on 
the right to the left side of the one on the left, the connector goes around 
the left rectangle. This is good.

If instead of the left rectangle, you use some of the other shapes, for 
example the vertical scroll auotshape or a freeform, then the connector goes 
through (!) the shape.

Of course you can manually adjust the conector, but then if you move 
something, it goes right back through the shape.

The same problem also occurs with curved connectors.

Any suggestions?

4.Add control points to straight elbow connector?


I have three boxes along a horizontal line and need to have an arrow going 
from the right side of box 1 to the left side of box 3--preferably not going 
straight through box 2! Is there any way to get control points to show up on 
the elbow connector? 

The elbow (or curve) connector degenerates to a straight line with no 
control points when i connect the two boxes. 

Any ideas?

Tx in advance. 

5.Freeforms and elbow connectors

In PowerPoint 2003 you could use elbow connectors with freeform shapes and it 
would work as with any other shape. In PowerPoint 2007, the default route 
chosen for an elbow connector to a freeform always seems to come from the 
right, often going right through the shape! Is there any way to get it to 
work as it does in 2003?
