  • 1. How to switch a powerpoint email from slides to outline - no tab
    I received an email from my professor that is 23 powerpoint slides. I want to convert it to tha outline form for printing, since I'd rather print 3 pages, not 23. The usual slides tab is not on the page he sent, and the only other choices are the usual powerpoint formatting options when you are producing a powerpoint presentation. Is there any way I can turn this monster into a simple outline? HELP! I have Windows xp.
  • 2. Mpeg playback in producer
    When I record a powerpoint presentation with an Mpeg inserted in Producer the movie will play in the preview but not in the published version burned to CD. The Mpeg is on the CD and will play back via Mediaplayer. Any ideas on where I'm going wrong would be welcome.
  • 3. Powerpoint music problem
    I wonder if someone can help me. In the past, I've received some lovely Powerpoint shows (.pps) in email with music. They open full screen as soon as I click on the link in the email. I've been trying to do something similar for a first time. I've read everything I could find about doing it and have it pretty much figured out... except...... the music is a problem. I wanted to have an MP3 from my hard drive to accompany the slide show. And, of course, the MP3 will play just fine on my computer but won't work when I send it to someone. So.... I read about using the program called Cdex to convert the MP3 to WAV file that could be embedded in the show. I downloaded that progranm converted the file.. and put the music file in the same folder as the show, etc, as advised. Also increased the maximum size of the music file as recommended in the settings of Powerpoint. I created a totally new .pps with the new wav file but the music won't even play on MY computer now doing it that way when I try to view the show. I'm obviously doing something wrong. I'm using Powerpoint 2000 and the CDex version is 150 (I learned that 151 won't work with Windows98 which is what I have). Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong.. ???? I'd really appreciate any tips you might have. Sorry about such a long message but I'm trying to make sure I'm clear about my problem. Thank you......

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?
