  • 2. Minimum indent ?
    I'm trying to set up bullet styles/indent levels on a Slide Master but I can't reduce the indent more to than 0.5 (cm?). I'm trying to do this by moving the marker to the left in the ruler. This has been done in another Slide Master I am trying to copy. Is there any way to go below this minimum which seems to be set up ? Thanks, Dan
  • 3. How do I delay the transition from slide to slide in Power Point?
    I'm running Office Teacher Edition 2003 - Power Point 2003. I've tried adjusting the slide transition as well as the delays on the custom animation and the last bullet point on slides 2 of 4 and 3 of 4 jump immediately to the next slide without any delay or ability to read such bullet point before the slide moves on. What am I missing?
  • 4. Why can't I insert sound on some of my Powerpoint slides?
    I am putting together a slide show. I am using background music which I am importing from a sound file. I want a different piece of music for each section.I set the music to start on a title slide then continue for X number of slides. It worked fine for the first two sections but when I inserted sound files on subsequent sections, I can't hear them. Also, why is it so difficult to get rid of that sound icon??
  • 5. Linking excel object in powerpoint to a specific sheet
    Hi, I have a PowerPoint presentation which has several slides. Each of these slides has an inserted object which is an excel spreadsheet. Each of these spreadsheets is actually a different worksheet in the same excel file. When I turn linking on, each of these link to the excel worksheet which was being viewed when I saved the spreadsheet. I'd like to be able to link different slide to different worksheets in the same excel file. Is this possible? Any help is appreciated. Thanks! Jeremy

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?
