  • 1. My Powerpoint (2003, 11.6361.6360 SP1) no longer runs mpeg
    My Powerpoint 2003 will no longer run videos (embedded MPEGs) which previously worked fine on a click, and the programme terminates with no helpful error code. The MPEGs themselves run fine in Windows Media Player (v.;, and the PPT files also run OK on another XP machine. The only thing that has changed is that Windows Media has been upgraded from 9 to 10 since the files were produced. I have searched the Knowledge Base, but can't get a solution. Any help please?
  • 2. ppt or pps no launch if powerpoint open
    Hi There, I'm running PowerPoint 2004 (11.2.1) on a Mac (Tiger 10.4.3). If I have powerpoint open and I doubleclick a ppt or pps file, the zoom window/application open woosh happens, but nothing opens. If I try to open the same files from within Powerpoint using FILE/OPEN, they will open as PPT most of the time, even if they are PPS. Weird. Any thoughts? Is this due to the 11.2.1 update? Regards, Toe Cutter.

  • 5. "PowerPoint can't read ..." message when opening a file
    I have edited a file from a computer running PowerPoint 2003 with Windows XP Professional on a Macintosh computer running PowerPoint 2004 for Mac with Mac OS 10.3.9. When I tried to open the edited file on the original computer, I get the following message, "PowerPoint can't read path\file_name.ppt." However, I have been able to open the file on computers running PowerPoint 97 and PowerPoint 2000. Any ideas?

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?
