  • 3. powerpoint to word outlines collapsing
    Hi all, {I'm using Mac OS X, powerpint for mac 2004, but exactly the same issue applies to my other computer, a PC laptop with Powerpoint 2000] I'm trying to convert masses of ppt files to word. Encountered a problem with first file! The file contains several slides each of which has a title and one text box. To convert the files, I select all the slides in outline view, then copy, then paste into a new Word doc. problem: SOME of the slides copy correctly, some of them only the title is copied across. Manually collapsing / expanding the outline in outline view makes no difference. If I do "send to Word" (instead of using copy / paste, I get the same behaviour, but there are further formatting issues which arise which I don't want to deal with right now. First of all I want to understand the outline / collapse behaviour. I've found a bizarre fix by accident: If, on the slides which only seem to paste the title, I select the title in outline view, then indent (ie promote) it and un-indent it, and repeat the whole procedure, the file is correctly pasted (or Send-ed) into Word. Why is this happening? How can I convert files without this hassle? The text in question appears fine in the outline view and so I do not believe it is an issue with placeholders. As a follow-up question, is there a way to batch-process hundreds of these files? thanks very much to anyone who can help, the dukester,

    Hi, I've used custom animation to animate an image/ text and want to apply a sound as an effect from the Microsoft gallery of sounds. I know to access "effect options" , Effects tab and "sound" from the enhancements section in order to apply sounds. I've selected "other sounds" but don't get the microsoft gallery which comes up if you were to go to moves and sounds on the insert menu. Can anyone advise me on how to get round this? I'm working in Powerpoint 2002 and 2003. Thanks for your time, Suzanne

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?
