  • 1. PowerPoint 2002 & HiDefinition
    I was wondering...when a PowerPoint presentation is viewed on a High Definition screen, what happens? Is there a plug-in or something to develope slides in widescreen? I have made a few templates that look cool, but I don't know if they would work? Will there be an HD feature in PowerPoint 2003?
  • 2. Initializing VBA Controls
    I'm not sure if that Subject explains it very well but I'm working on a Presentation that creates shapes, changes TextBoxes, etc. This might be the opposite of what most people want but when I run the Presentation again I want it to go back to the way it was the first time. Is there an easy way to tell it not to change things permanently? By the way, to all those keeping track, I have almost got everything that I want to do working. Thanks, E. Cox
  • 3. preserving image transparency
    Hi, This is a panic drop-in to the NG to get a quick answer that I hope you can provide, so please pardon me if this has been addressed recently as I don't usually monitor this NG. I need to be able to drop an image into powerpoint from either Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop (either would work, Illustrator would be preferable) while maintaining the image's transparent background so that the template shows through behind the actual artwork, rather than a white rectangular backdrop. I've tried .tiff, .ai, .eps, and they all come into powerpoint *with* the background. Anyone able to tell me how to do this? I know it can be done because the presentations I'm updating include older images with exactly this transparent background quality I'm trying to achieve. Specific, step-by-step directions would be appreciated because I can be remarkably obtuse and imprecise otherwise :). Thanks in advance, Sherif AUS,Inc.

    I will give it a go and let you know my success (or failure) on this. The only problem is that it's on a CD, and cannot be modified on that platform, so it kind of makes the whole autorun thing moot. I'll let you know the results in the next day or two (I only see this person every other day on average...).

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?
