  • 1. Customize Ribbon entry
    I really like the Animate: entry in the Animations ribbon. It could be a real time saver, except that it contains options that I don't use often. Can I change them? For example, Fade is the first entry in this list. Can I change it to Appear? Thanks, Fred.
  • 2. Formatting Issues Making PDF of PowerPoint Notes View
    Often times when we make a PDF of the Notes view in PowerPoint, the PDF has different line breaks than the actual PowerPoint file. So, if a soft return was used to move something to the next line, sometimes that return appears in the middle of a paragraph and creates a large amount of blank space in a paragraph. Thanks for any insight.
  • 3. Problem with Presenters mode, and graphs
    We are having troubles on some new computers, where in presenters mode, the labels and data are not being displayed. Some sides work, others don't. it seems to be random. if you restart it might not do it again, and if it does, it is not always the same information that is missing. the actual graph is fine, but the text is what goes missing. It even goes missing on the presenters screen, not just the projector. Anyone have any ideas of what to check? I am guessing it is a problem with the HW... but thought I would see if anyone else has seen the problem as well.
  • 4. User Template folder for .POTX file
    Hello, I am having some difficulty trying to locate the correct folder to place a company PP template that I use. In 2003, I placed it in my User templates folder and every time I did File/New I could see the .POT file and select it. I want to do the same thing for 2007, but I cannot seem to see where the blank presentation resides. I can put them in "My Templates but I am trying to put them in the same folder with the Installed Templates. Can I do this in Office 2007? If so, what is the path I should be using. Thank you. -- Mkate

    I hyperlinked an icon in PowerPoint to a website. The website opens but opens on the desktop. You must close the PowerPoint presentation to view the website. How can I get it to open over the PowerPoint slide?

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?
